Every Spring Roamers put on their bumble bee outfits and buzz off into the flower's collecting pollen. They take it home and make it into honey.
Place numbered flowers randomly on the floor.
Put the Roamer in the starting position.
Program the Roamer to move to the first flower and collect the pollen.
If it lands on the flower, have another go and try to land on the second flower, and so on.
If the Roamer misses a flower, the turn ends and the next player begins.
On your second turn, start from the last flower you landed on.
The first Roamer to collect pollen from each flower is the winner.
Another game is to see who can get furthest around the course by writing one program for all the moves.
