Description Edit | History

From the publishers website:

Gear up for a memory bender in this fast-playing card game of shouting silliness. Turn over a card and give the robot a name: Melvin, Spaghetti Head, GP-450, or whatever you imagine. When it shows up again, be the first to shout its name and you collect the stack of cards. Spot a robot match? Shout out "Thing-a-ma-BOT" and steal an opponent's stack! Collect the most robots to win the game.

Thing-a-ma-Bots is an easy-to-learn game starring the silliest robots around. Players of all ages will enjoy making up ridiculous names for the colorful characters. The game helps build creativity and memory skills while inspiring giggles and goofiness.

2 Rules clarification insert
As described in the following thread (http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/673722/shouting-thing-a-ma-bot-to-protect-your-own-pile), the offical rules leave unclear how to handle a common case that arises in a "Thing-a-ma-bot!" shout. This insert (cut it out, fold it in half, and put it in the instructions booklet) contains Gamewright's official rule clarification, plus a variant with two dice that adds some suspense to the game (the dice fit in the original game box).
