Easy to learn
Wombattle has easy to learn rules. It only takes 5 minutes to learn or teach to your friends and start playing.
Before the game, all players must come up with a real reward and write it on a piece of paper. The reward can be anything, a hug, a movie together, or even a promise. The winners of this game will get these real offers after the game. “Winners”, because not just one, two winners you will have in each game. You can earn the Grand prize or the Players Choice prize.
Use the box!
Wombattle has a unique and fun way to choose the categories of each round. You will have to use the game box itself, as it is a real part of the playing area. It is a game within the game.
Girls go first
Wombattle designed by a team including 5 women. It is farly rare in this industry and we are glad we can support them making their idea coming to life. We are sure, this is a great opportunity to show their talents.
We are committed for the game and we believe in it, so we will give you all extra content now what was prepared. 32 challenges will be included in the box!
In each round different player will take on the role of game master. The master chooses the winner, he makes the decision in all questionable cases, but he must also oversee the round. A round consists of 4 parts:
The game master picks up and examines the current challenge card, then throws the throwing stone. This decides the category for this round according to the throw. The game master has half a minute to come up with a Trial for the other players, one which is connected to the challenge card AND is of the current category.
The players battle each other. They carry out the trial set by the game master in the last phase.
3. ANNOUNCEMENT OF RESULTS
The game master ends the trial and announces the winner of the round, or a tie. The winner places one of his/her obstacle markers in a freely chosen hole on the throwing board that is of the corresponding category colour for this round’s trial. In case of a tie, if several players completed the trial equally well, or if all failed the trial, the person that yells out “Wombat” the quickest is considered the winner.
4. PLAYERS VOTE
At the end of a round, if a player found a fellow player’s solution the wittiest, he may give that player 1 voting token from the common supply. Each person may only vote once in each round. Then game master does not vote, but can receive votes. If at least one player voted in the current round, then the game master receives a voting token for overseeing a pleasing round.
The rounds continue until a player first gets rid of all his obstacle markers. He wins the Grand Prize, and hence can draw a reward. Then the person with the most player votes can draw the Players Choice prize. In case of equal num-ber of votes, the Players Choice prize goes to the player that yells “Wombat” first.

Risks and challenges
Wombattle will be our 7th released game overall and we already had crowdfunding projects on Kickstarter also. Ave Roma, Sakura and Prehistory were great success on Kickstarter. We are familiar with the process both the production and Kickstarter fulfillment. We always search new ways to improve our processes. Currently Prehistory is coming to the end of its manufacturing, getting ready for the fulfillment.
During the Wombattle campaign all of its components will be finalized and prepared for production. Our main manufacturing partner is located in Poland and they have great experience with several large publishers already. Almost instantly after the campaign ends, the game will be in production. The fulfillment will be fully controlled by our company to make sure top notch quality is produced. For the freight shipping we will use our usual partner Kuehne + Nagel.
We want to keep you updated with all the relevant information about the progress of the project and keep our quality standards in the meantime. :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
