I've never been a big fan of roborally for some reason.  In theory the rules are well done and interesting, but in practice all the games I've played just break down into an annoying mess as people try to manouver about.

I wonder if they will be tweaking the rules at all for the rerelease...

I recall picking up two original robo rally expansions for around $50 total.

Then I sold them on Ebay for about $600 to someone in Germany.  I was flabbergasted when I saw the final bid price and thought someone was joking around, when the money really came I was even more surprised.

Huh.  I never realized they were hard to find.  RoboRally's a great game to play with other programmers.  It's a really bad game to play with other programmers and a couple of non-geeks.

And here I am wishing I never tossed my mint copy.  Never could find anybody to play it with so it just sat, unused, in the box until I had to relocate a bunch of stuff.

This along with some classic PC games.  Even if I didn't want them they could have gone to a loving home.  All before I discovered GG, unfortunately.

got a chance to play this tonight with five other people.  i had never played the original, but got enough of an impression on what it was like from other people to know how it played.  according to the other players, the new version is basically a tweaked and better-balanced revision. it plays pretty much the same, almost exactly as i had envisioned it - it's Turtle LOGO with conveyer belts and lasers.

how fun was it?  enough that i purchased my own copy - it's the first board game i've purchased in years.  definitely worth a look - see if your local games store has a demo you can play.
