Below is information on the Robo Rally tournament to be run at D-Con 2017.

Run Time: 1:30-3:30pm

Prizes: Ricochet Robots

Kindly donated by WABA (subject to enough participants)

Skill Level: Ideally aimed at people who played RoboRally before. If there is enough interest from newbies a learning session can be organised beforehand.

Signups:


We currently have 2 game boards and so can offer places for up to 16 people (8 per board).

1) Oliver
2) Nyssa
3) Shaun
4) Cazz
5) David Yeates (reserve)
6) Zoe or David
7) Claire D
8) Rob Masters
9) adam gordon (scifipig)
10) Andrew S(Malesh)
11) Aidden
12)
13)
14)
15)
16)

Rules:

The rules are the same as normal RoboRally except for the following changes:

• No flags or lives, the object is kill the other robots
• Gain 1 option card for each robot killed
• No powering down, the only way to heal is to stop on spanner spaces
• Can only get a new option card and/or healed by moving to a new banner/tool spot
• Keep unused cards each round
• Get dealt new cards up to your normal hand limit
• Common deck is not shuffled in between rounds and instead new cards are just drawn off the top. It is shuffled once exhausted
• 30 second timer is turned over as soon as all of the cards are dealt. Anyone who does not complete their turn in time gets dealt cards off the top of the deck to finish the rest of their program spots
• The game ends when only 1 robot is left or at 3:15pm (whichever happens first)

Set up:

Players will be randomly allocated to a board and will play on that board until they are eliminated or when we combine to 1 board.[/i]

The “Vault” map board is used and will be the only board used
Each player is dealt an option card (a few non suitable ones are removed from the deck beforehand)
A random starting Player is chosen. They then place their Robot at any tile of the Map, which is not in the central four squares of the map and not on any special map. Continuing placing robots clockwise in seating order. Every player after the first may not put his robot in a direct line (walls interrupt line of sight!) to another robot and not within 3 squares. If this is for any reason not possible anymore, then try placing it closer, while staying out of a direct line.

Combining to 1 Board:


Play starts off on 2 separate boards which will run as separate games. Play continues as normal with the rules above until there are a total of 8 robots left. Once this occurs the current turn is ended and then all remaining players are moved to a single board.

Each player discards all of there movement cards, but keeps all damage, option cards and VP's earned.

Starting with the person with the most VP's they set up on the board following the setup rules above. Then the person with next VP's etc. Ties are broken by damage and then option cards.

Once everything is setup people draw cards as normal and keep playing.

Should 2 people have the same robot figure the person with the highest VP's get to keep there figure and the next person must swap to an available figure.


Winner:

• Each player gains 1 VP for each robot kill they have
• Each player gains 1 VP if their robot survives until the end of the game

The person with the highest score wins. Ties are broken by most kills then most health left, then most option cards[/i]

Instructional video:

This video is quite good. Watch the first 6 minutes or so for a run down on the rules. can also give people a quick demo before the tourny starts.
