My team has an idea that would require a bag(s), but since VEX IQ does not have a bag type of ‘part,’ we can make due by using the plastic bags the parts are shipped in. I understand that the rules say you can only use VexIQ parts, and since they are from VexIQ; would this be deemed as breaking the rules ? We would like a verdict on whether or not this is acceptable. Thanks!

This is addressed specifically in <R6b> of the VEX IQ Challenge Highrise Game Appendix. Let’s take a look.

Thus you can’t use the bags or any other packaging that came with your VEX IQ parts.
