Magnet is a member of the "Stratego" family of games.   Each player has 12 pieces of several different types, which are initially hidden from the opponent.   The goal of the game is dual, to either advance your king to the center of the board, or to capture your opponent's king.  Movement is contolled by placig a "Magnet" on the board, which attracts the nearest friendly piece in all 6 directions.  Pieces can be promoted after movement, and some pieces are bombs which destroy the attacking piece.  Complete rules here.

Robots:  So far, the robot seems pretty weak.

The back story: 
I found Magnet as one of those remaindered games sold on; that's not an indication of a bad game - It's also where I found Ra.
