They had the robot infiltrate the opposing chess team, for the annual chess tournament, where he was the last player. As it was programed with all the chess moves ever played, it quickly defeated the entire team. Overcome with grief, they fell victim to the Sorcerers magic and were changed into monsters, along with multiple other students. However realising he was a robot, Howard told Randy and thus he realised the only way to change everyone back to normal, was to defeat the robot. Howard took him on, and proved to be even better at chess than the robot. Defeating it, all the students returned back to normal. Unable to except failure, the robot shifted form and attacked Howard, however before it got close Randy destroyed it was his fire attack.
