The Basics

The premise of the game is that you, the player, control a robot with the goal of navigating it through the hazardous board and touching up to four checkpoints in order. Each turn the players are dealt cards that contain movement instructions (move forward, turn left, back up, etc…), from which they pick five to be their robot’s instructions (read: program) for that turn. Once chosen, the instructions cannot be changed. Once all players have chosen their robot programs, all the robots move at once, pushing and jostling each other in their dash to reach the checkpoints. Frequently, players make mistakes when programming their robots; even more frequently they exchange bouts of cursing. For more details, see the official rules for RoboRally.
