Ricochet Robots Now Features Improved Components

Your experience of bouncing robots off walls and past obstacles as you guide them to their destination just got a little bit better. Z-Man Games is happy to announce that the latest printing of the Alex Randolph’s Ricochet Robots includes several improvements to the components designed to enhance the experience of this classic for veterans and newcomers alike.

With the most recent edition of Ricochet Robots from Z-Man Games, players can plot the robots’ trajectories in an attempt to optimize their moves across every board that has been released for the game thus far. These eight two-sided boards can be combined for over 1,500 board configurations, providing unique challenges for every game. To increase their durability, the boards in the most recent printing are thicker than previous versions. This update makes each board more sturdy and better able to withstand wear-and-tear.

At its heart, Ricochet Robots is a game of speed. Not only do players need to find a path for the robot, they need to do so before the other players. In addition to being studier and more durable, the boards in this printing were cut with far higher precision than previous print runs, resulting in far better alignment between the four sections of the board. Players can now plot the robot’s trajectory across multiple boards more easily and without the technical limitations of earlier printings.

Since its initial release in 1999, Ricochet Robots has become noted for its unique structure, ability to accommodate a large number of players, and variety of techniques for choosing a robot’s path. The improvements made to the boards in the latest printing of the game should please the most experienced Ricochet Robots players while helping introduce this classic to new audiences.
