BEEP BOOP: Build, Battle, and Kick Bot!

$9,293

439

BEEP BOOP is a kid-friendly, strategic, competitive card game about battling robots. Why? Because who doesn't love robots? The game is pretty straight-forward and a lot of fun. Players play cards to build and upgrade their robot while sabotaging other players. When a robot is built, players can begin attacking each other. The last robot standing wins!

Players: 2-4  |  Time: 30-45 Minutes  |  Age: 10+

Like any Kickstarter campaign if we don't reach our funding goal, BEEP BOOP might not exist at all. The primary reason is that the minimum order we can place with the manufacturer, Panda Game Manufacturing, is 1500 copies of the game. That plus freight shipping, design, and the small cut that Kickstarter takes amounts to about $7,700. We truly believe you will enjoy this game, and we have put a lot of time, money, and effort into what it has become today. However, we need your help to place the first order.

These cards are robot BODY part cards. These are used to build your robot so you can battle and destroy your friend's robots! A complete robot requires 1 head, 1 left arm and leg, 1 right arm and leg that attach to a Body card which is handed out to each player at the beginning of the game.

These are a few of the BASE UPGRADE cards. Use these to increase your chances of winning the game by gaining an edge over your friends and family.

These are SABOTAGE cards. Use these to destroy your opponent's chances of winning!

The card on the left is one of the PLAY IMMEDIATELY cards. When drawn, these cards must be played...well...immediately!

The card in the middle is one of the many DRAW cards that can be played to draw more cards during your turn.

Risks and challenges

Things that could stop or delay Akimbo Games from delivering the game:

- A family emergency - If one of our team members experiences some emergency regarding their family or personal health, the project fulfillment could be delayed.

- Unexpected cost - We have a clear financial plan on exactly what we need to get the initial game order, but if the campaign gains enough traction, we will be doing some rework on the game and some retesting which might cost us more than our original plan. This would also delay the time it takes for BEEP BOOP to be in the hands of our fans.

This our first game and as such, will be our first time dealing with manufacturers, inventory, order fulfillment, and distribution. We have been in communication with a manufacturer and depending on how successful the Kickstarter is, we will send them our most updated version to be created. We are extremely excited to continue learning about all of these different processes and how they all come together to get our game in your hands. We have a lot of learning still to do, and we hope you will join us in this journey, and if you have any recommendations, please message us.

Cody is working full-time in the Air Force, and Daniel is a full-time student at Mississippi State University, but we are passionate about the game and we are putting our all into making the game a reality. We are ready to take on the challenge and meet all obstacles in our way so that we can get our game to a table top near you!
