Robo Rally

Robo Rally® is a game published by Wizards of the Coast. It was originally publsihed in 1994 and was created by Richard Garfield, the creator of the card game "Magic: The Gathering".

In Robo Rally, players assume control of one of many "Robot Control Computers" in a dangerous widget factory filled with moving course-altering conveyor belts, metal-melting laser beams, bottomless pits, crushers, and a variety of other obstacles. The goal in a game of Robo Rally is, apart from survival, to be the first to reach a pre-designated number of checkpoints in a particular order. However, the real difficulty in Robo Rally is movement, which is accomplished with the randomly dealt "Program Cards".

The program cards specify movement, such as move forward one, turn left or u-turn. The cards have to arranged by the player in the specific manner he/she wishes the robot to move. Each player receives up to nine cards each turn. He/she uses five of the cards to specify his/her robot's movement for the given turn. Players with damaged robots receive fewer cards.
