If you like Ricochet Robots and if you like Robo Rally than this may be your game of choice. First of all the Quality of the components is very good, the little plastic robots look just fine and the gameboard and markers are of the same high quality. You can play different "missions" which differ a little bit in the setup and obstacles that are placed on the board, after that everybody places his robot on the gameboard and draws some orders that are placed on your programming board in front of you. With these orders you you try to defeat your comrades bots. That sounds easy but it isn´t.
At the beginning I spoke of Ricochet Robots. There you have to figure out how to get to your goal with the fewest moves without actually moving your robot on the gameboard. You must figure out what happens if your robot moves in some direction and how to get from that point to the next point on the board. Droids just works like that. The programming orders must be placed on the programming board directly in the row where your robot stands or will be standing when it gets the order to move to some place. If there is no order in the row where your robot stands then your robot can not move or do anything else at all. That makes things a bit complicated but now there will be your opponents which also try to defeat your robot, and they can influence the place where your robot is standing. Maybe the move your robot with there own robot to a plce on the gameboard where you have´nt placed any programming orders? Then you can do nothing except hoping that someone else can bring you in the game again. Otherwise you will certainly loose the game.

Final comment: I like this game very much, you need at least 3 players otherwise you won´t get in contact with your opponent. It is a fast playing game and after a lost battle ther is enough tim to get revenge. The Game components are of high Quality, especially the robots, and you can think a lot about how to place your orders best on the programming board.
