Product Description

RoboRally is a fast-moving robot race. Each player tries to be the first to cross a series of checkpoints by maneuvering a robot across the floor of the "Grid Widget Factory." The course is laced with perils such as lasers, crushers, missile launchers, and conveyer belts.

The 2005 edition of RoboRally includes new design and play mechanics that differ from the game's original 1994 release, but it's still completely compatible with the first edition.

Watch out for the… whoops!
July 31, 2010

This “puzzle” type game is for the light-hearted only. If you’re easily upset by an unforeseen force ruining your entire strategy and thus making you lose the game, you won’t like Robo Rally.

However, if you can deal with a healthy dose of strategy, the occasional vindictive players and out-of-your-control luck then buy Robo Rally. Bonus: You get to be a robot and shoot lasers at your fellow players. Who doesn’t like that?

Mechanics: All robots start at one end of the board and are tasked with capturing the flag. You are dealt a series of command cards to control which direction the robot will move. On the board there are moving conveyer belts and pitfalls (which you’ll want to avoid!) While you control your own robot, you cannot control what your opponents are doing. As you race toward the flag, you can be bumped and laser- blasted by your opponents. Occasionally you’ll get knocked out of alignment so far that you’ll get pushed into one of those dreaded pitfalls!

The more players (2-8) the more chaotic (and fun) the game becomes. I suggest ditching the timer for the first several rounds of play so newbies can get into the swing of things.

Pro’s: It’s a different game every time. The equipment for your robot is fun and keep the game fresh (and usually unbalanced). Keep the atmosphere light and everyone will have fun. Amusing concept. Writers were creative with descriptions of the robots.

Con’s: We’ve never had the patience for the medium or long length games. Even the simplistic maps can take 1-2 hours with a full house. Also, a slight misunderstanding of the rules can ruin the game for a newbie—Make sure everyone understands how the room actions affect the robots.

The price tag is high, but that’s because there’s a lot included in the box. You’ll get a lot of entertainment from the game.

Note: If you are getting bored with the short-length boards, or finding the players never land on the equipment, just randomly re-arrange the flag positions! It’s a whole new robot game! ~Lou Rocco Centrella

I learned this game through a member of my old gaming group. I never knew this game was a re-release, but I absolutely love this game. It's a beer and pretzel game, but very fun, and unlike a lot of other games, the more you add, the more hilarious and entertaining the game becomes. the bumping, pushing, shooting and cursing get great with all the players you can fit in the game. A great way to sit back and get an easy laugh with friends. A must buy for any gamer!

RoboRally: A Quick Review
May 23, 2006


The new Avalon Hill has recently re-released a range of classic games with improved rules and components. Roborally was one of the first games to receive this treatment, and the new version has turned out brilliantly.

Roborally is a game designed by Richard Garfield, the creator of the original Magic the Gathering. It is a game about programming your robot then watching the chaos unfold, and what chaos! This is a very easy game to teach, learn and play, and is always great fun. At the beginning of a turn you will be dealt a hand of cards, using these cards you must program your robot’s movement for the turn, taking into account such board features as conveyer belts, lasers and bottomless pits. The object is to race your robot around and be the first to have ‘touched’ all the flags (which will vary in location and number depending on the map you use).

One of the best ways to play this game is by using a time limit everyone must abide by – ie: during the programming phase everyone must have their robots programmed in X amount of time. Using this optional rule means that every player will be under pressure to get their move programmed quickly, and this will increase the tension – and fun – of the game considerably.

Roborally is a great game to watch as well as play, watching what happens after a robot turns left when the player thought it would turn right is hilarious – if you aren’t that player. Bumping and shoving are big parts of the game as well, having your robot shoved one square out of the way will mean that the entire programmed movement is out – who knows where the little thing will end up!

Roborally comes with all the components you need to play, four double sided maps, flags, robots, damage markers (lots of them), life tokens (lots of them too), program cards, option cards, and a colourful rule book and course book – which has a heap of suggested maps.

One of the best things about Roborally is that the game is so easy to modify, if you want to make your own variation of a rule you can easily, there are also a ton of users who do the same – and their fun, and funny, suggestions can be found on the Avalon Hill website or other gaming related sites like Board Game Geek. Roborally is a brilliant game to play with between four to eight friends while you are having a couple of drinks, it is engaging (without being too tactical), and great fun.
