A two player game in which each player commands a group of robots with special abilities. Some robots fly, some explode, some push, some create clones, etc. For three rounds each player will simultaneously select up to three robots to charge onto the game board from a dock that attaches to one edge of a game board. The robots are given a power token which specifies how many spaces it can move and a priority token which specifies when a robot will move. If you've successfully outguessed your opponent, you'll be able to claim the center of the board and score more points. The team that has scored the most points at the end of three rounds is the winner.
From the rules:
By the year 2534, inefficient, unreliable human players of team sports have been replaced by machines, maximizing enjoyment for all. To take advantage of the machines’ capabilities, new Robosports have been invented.
The third most popular sport on planet Earth after SPACECAR racing and Clone Professional Wrestling is RoboUltimateMechaBattleLeague, where the controllers try to program their team of robots to seize the middle of the playing field in three rounds of exciting robotic combat. To win a RUMBL, you must carefully choose among the special abilities of your robots, place them for maximum impact, anticipate your opponent’s moves, and ration your team’s power strategically. If you can do all this, you can rule the RUMBL!
