We are happy to announce today, Alex Randolph’s birthday, our reprint of his great abstract game: Ricochet Robots. We expect to release the game later this year Summer 2024.

Four robots move in a warehouse. As they have no brakes, they must rely on obstacles such as walls and other robots to stop. Once stopped, they use nozzles to move in a direction away from that obstacle, allowing them to turn. From time to time, they receive a request to move to one of the 17 targets in the warehouse and they rely on the players to provide them with instructions to move to the targets. Each turn, a player draws a chip to determine the next target and the robot that must reach it. The players search for the shortest moves to the target, using one or more of the robots. The player who finds the shortest route receives the chip as a reward. The player who takes the most chips, is the winner! Any number may play this game, making it a great party game, “If you love puzzles, sci-fi B movies, or just plain off-the-wall humor, this game’ s for you!” – Robin H. King, Games Magazine
