A Puzzling Situation

Ricochet Robot 4.0

In Ricochet Robot players compete to move Robots around the board. A token is revealed that matches a special square on the board. Players then compete to see who can move the matching color robot to that square in as few moves as possible. Robots can be moved in any of the four directions (up, down, left or right) but the problem is that once they start moving they continue until they hit a wall, the edge of the board or another robot!

The problem this month is a variation on a previous variation. In earlier puzzles we had you getting all four robots to their destination squares. Well, you still have to do that this time but the trick is that you now have three possible destination squares for each robot. For example it does not matter which blue square you get the blue robot to, any of them will suffice.
