Robo Rally

The Basics
Description: Imagine that you're a supercomputer. Now imagine that you're bored. So you dream up a little contest for you and a couple of your supercomputing buddies. Your task is to move one of the stupid little robots out on the factory floor through a series of checkpoints scattered throughout the factory. The wrinkle, however, is that the factory floor is filled with all kinds of inconvenient (if not down-right deadly) obstacles located in various locations: conveyor belts, crushers, flame-throwers, pushers, teleporters, oil slicks, pits, et cetera. But the real fun comes when the robots cross each other's path, and suddenly your perfect route is something less than that...

How to Play

Where to Play Online (I like Gleemax, but Eye Play and Palm version are fine)

Cheat Sheets (from the Geek)

Game HintsViews
  • Opinion: I really enjoy this game. I enjoy Hunters more, but this is an easy game to learn. I can teach it and go over it at lunch time, at the house or online.
  • Online: Works fine online
  • Work: Could be to long on the table, might work better online.
  • Home: Great game for families after they get the rules down.

Other Info

  • Plays best with: Works fine with 2-8 players, best with 5 or 6.
  • Gateway Suitability: Easy to learn, a little hard to master. So it might take a few games, then you are hooked.
  • Spouse Suitability: Chrissy loved the pieces and the game.
  • Re-playability: Once you get into it, replay is high.
  • Real Life Setup: A few minutes, sorting pieces and cards.
  • Real Life Time/Length: Without the expansions over an hour, the more players could take 2 hours in person.
