Press info:Four robots move on the floor of a warehouse. As they have no brakes, they rely on obstacles such as walls and other robots to stop. Once stopped, they can turn left or right and move again. On each turn, a target is chosen and the players search for the route with the fewest moves to the target. The player who finds the most efficient route receives the chip as a reward. When the chips have been all taken, the player with the most is the winner! Any number may play this game, making it a great party game.
