Robot Boxing

© Copyright 2004 Mojoey

The hit at this years Christmas party was a remote controlled knockoff version of Rockem Sockem Robots. We held a rotating tourney; I was 0 for 2, but real close to winning both times! The robots are a little hard to control, which made the scene more reminiscent of a robotic dancing contest. The robots have a jab and a rapid-fire rabbit punch. The trick was to hit the opposing robot on a sensor in the middle of its chest. It was very hard to do; most of the matches were positioning battles. We had fun with this and it beat the hell out of a lopsided game of Trivial Pursuit which we played earlier in the evening. The great thing about this toy is that it came home with me!
