How to Win
Each turn, you'll draw random Program cards, each featuring an instruction for the movement of your robot. Secretly choose five of those cards to plan out your robot's moves across a perilous course with the goal of being the first to touch all the flags in order. Getting to the flags isn't always easy, though, because you'll execute your secret moves at the same time as all the other players. Robots will get in each other's way, push each other off course, and shoot each other with lasers. Sometimes the biggest challenge is just surviving!

Do the option cards apply to the rear laser option? For example, when you receive the rear-laser option, can you fire the rear laser and exercise the Mini Howitzer option too? Also when you land on the hammer and wrench (repair site) square to obtain an option card, how many times can you stay on the repair site and how many cards can you receive from one site? Anxiously waiting! Thanks!
