About this project

"Strike, combo, KO!"

 

Arcade Fighter is a strategic tabletop game that brings the thrill of the arcade to your kitchen table. Customize your game for short fights, or longer grinds. With one-on-one play, tournament style, and tag team fights, Arcade Fighter provides hours of fun and replay-ability.

Choose from six elite fighters, each representing their respective martial art. Go head-to-head, assemble strike combos to perform devastating attacks and claim victory.

Every Arcade Fighter game comes with the following components:

Download and play the print-and-play version before you back Arcade Fighter!

Arcade fighter is played by positioning symbol cards onto your fighter data sheet. Players choose to advance their card position, or strike opponent cards to disrupt combos. Deal enough damage to KO your opponent, and you win.

The unique mechanics in Arcade Fighter revolver around card placement and that of your opponent's cards. The cost of performing a strike or combo is to sacrifice your own card placement. It's all about balancing risks and rewards and learning how to read your opponent and strike when the time is right.

There is a lot of interaction between players, as defending players can block combos, and attacking players can string together strikes and combos too efficiently to be blocked.

Arcade Fighter is easy to learn, but difficult to master. And game length is customize-able for casual players or hard-core fighters.

Add an armor token for longer games.

Add arena cards to give your game more variability and tons of fun.

A basic turn looks something like this:

Fighters data sheets are each unique, but balanced. Different match-ups make for hours of play and replay.

And tag-team fights are a great way to cooperate and share cards and strategy to outwit your opponents. The basic mechanics are the same, so it's easy to teach a new teammate, but the experience and strategies will vary wildly depending on how you customize your fight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shipping hundreds of board games world-wide is a massive undertaking. We tried to strike a balance between making the per-game-price affordable, supplementing shipping costs, and making the game available all over the world. In order to achieve these goals, we have calculated these shipping rates:

US Shipping - $6.00

Canada & UK - $13.00

Everywhere Else - $20.00

By separating these shipping costs, we are able to set a lower minimum funding goal, making it easier to reach, and thus more likely to achieve. The goal here is to get the game out with as little funding as possible. 

NOTE: If you are pledging from outside the US, you are responsible for paying duties and taxes when applicable.
