Description

  1. The control computer has failed and the robots are racing through factory buildings uncontrolled. Help the robots and lead them to their target points. Only someone who cleverly plans and uses the obstacles will be sent to the goal. But who finds the shortest way?This new edition of Ricochet Robots contains for the first time all the published game plans in one issue.

Robots is less of a game and more of a puzzle, which explains why there’s such an odd number of solutions possible. There’s a four-piece modular board that forms a large room with walls spread around the board. There are also color-coded targets on boards. Placed on top of the surface are four robots. The idea for each turn/puzzle is to get the like-colored robot to a randomly selected target. The trick is that once a robot starts moving, it will continue to move until a wall or another robot stops it. Therefore, players are seeking a sequence of moves for the robots that will enable them to move the required robot to the target in the fewest moves.
