>>> Fzzzt! - "A futuristic
robot auction game with some dodgy mechanics"
It's a new-fangled modern age, a brave new world, of extraordinary,
strange and crazy robots; designed and built in a crackpot factory
by the Master Central Processing Unit Version D (or McPUD, for short).
McPUD has recently been suffering from a number of software bugs
which affects the speed of robot production, the types of robots
produced (each has one or more symbols) and, occasionally, their

out of A.I."
You are a mechanic competing to buy robots as they become available
on the factory's conveyor belt. Each game consists of five auction

After each round, and at the end of the game, mechanics can also

requiring sets of robots with particular symbols) for bonus points.
The winner is the mechanic with the most points.
