Robots is a 2020 Kinderspiel des Jahres nominee in which players must work together (or separately!) to figure out what speed means to each other.
How far do you think the robot will move in about 4 seconds? Well, it depends on how fast it's going! Players must develop a feeling for time and speed together without talking. It won't take long for the team to work out where the robot has stopped!

What the press is saying
Because of its simple design, Robots makes a great game to bring along to restaurants, or even on car rides where you can enjoy playing it quickly and quietly together to pass the time.
Robots is such a fun little game. It has that smile inducing element of mind reading that will be familiar to fans of The Mind and The Game, but it’s even simpler and family oriented.
It strips the rules down to something really simple and uses the speed as well as the destination to give you just enough different elements to keep the game challenging.
The game helps players learn and understand that their own perception of time might be different than others'.
More kid-friendly version of The Mind that uses the same no-talking getting-into-sync idea.
It is a perfect game to pull out 10-15 minutes before dinner or bedtime as a way to connect with the kiddos.
