Summary: Changed license from Public Domain to custom license. I don't think this game can be in the Public Domain when there is a restriction on the license ("so long as you credit both the adaptation author and the original concept designer"). That is more the equivalent of CC BY.

Reviews & Comments

I played the game with myself. The rules fail to mention what happens when a mice moves towards the edge of the board. Is the edge of the board an obstacle also?

I found that counting moves AND turns was confusing. When I get to play with someone I think I'll just count moves. Also, I noticed it is going to be really cumbersome to undo some failed demonstration, specially if it involves returning various robots to their original places in the board. So I suggest that the player describes in detail the actions to the others, and get the others approval before touching the board.
