15. Meeting point

This time we plan our moves before we start. The two teams put cards on the table to create the sequence of instructions that will move their respective robots, but nothing moves until one of the players says “Start!”. At that point the programming ends and the action begins. The player would said “Start!” wins only if the two robots, each executing the instructions of their team, end up on the same square.

Required material: CodyRoby cards, a 5 × 5 chequered board, two pawns.


Q1. If you think it's possible for the two robots to never meet, invent game rules that cover all possible situations.
