We review the Robo Rally board game of smash-em, bash-em robot racing!

Get ready for robotic mayhem with the Robo Rally board game! It's the far future and a bunch of bored supercomputers have programmed their crazy robots (one of them even thinks it's Godzilla) to run a race through a deadly factory. Each player is one of the supercomputers and you program your robot's movement with cards. Watch out though, conveyor belts, spinning gears, swinging panels and even other robots can shove your robot off course, or even blast it apart with lasers! If your robot dodges all the dangers and touches all the flags, you win!

Robo Rally is an excellent game, especially for learning to plan strategies that will crush your friends. It's best for parties cuz the action gets goofy fast, but make sure you have some time to sit down and play because a game can easily take longer than an hour.

    Yeah the gameplay can get kinds stale. For the first two nights just keep the door closed all night and the power will go out 2 seconds before 6 am. I don't really have a strategy for the 3-7 nights.

    The gameplay does tend to get a little stale after a while. The camera itself is virtually useless unless you just want to see the layout of the restaurant. The only time it's helpful is when you watch foxy. If you don't check him regularly, he'll come at you. If you manage to close your door in time he'll bang on it, draining more and more power each time. Other than that, the camera is basically useless...

    It's not scary. And I don't understand it.
