Meet Lefty!

The Sushi Chef


Introducing Lefty!


Lefty is the fourth and final robo-buddy you’ll meet in Quirky Circuits. One of the finest chefs in Robotopia, Lefty has acquired a most demanding clientele. Cats. Cats, each with different tastes in sushi. If Lefty doesn’t serve up their favorite dishes before its battery runs out, the wee chef could be out of a job, which means players lose the scenario.


Although the other three robots we’ve met could all move around their scenario pages, Lefty remains stationary behind the hibachi counter, or moves around the kitchen via conveyor belt. This robot swivels on its base to meet customer demands by creating requested dishes. This means cutting up fish, and combining fish and rice tokens. Once the right dish has been concocted, Lefty must drop the correct token in front of the corresponding cat.


Lefty slices and dices fish by dropping a token on top of a knife symbol on the board. But be careful! If Lefty ever drops a token down the drain, then the scenario has been lost. Dishes that have been successfully delivered to patrons may not be picked up again. Lefty would never serve leftovers to a paying customer – even a robot chef has a reputation to protect!

Scenarios featuring Lefty can be found on pages 32-41 of the scenario book and increase in difficulty with each turn of the page!

I hope you’ve enjoyed the Quirky Circuits previews for each robo-buddy. Quirky Circuits has a limited release at GenCon and will be readily available early September! Pre-order your copy now to be one of the first to receive the game!
