About

Arenabots is a strategic game of arena type for 2 to 4 players. You play a young pilot of bots who faces his opponents for glory in a LAB in the rich universe of Eden. You will have to control your bots, make them fight, move and hack the enemy bots in order to emerge victorious from the fight.

This complete game allows you to play from 2 to 4 players. Each player will have his miniature of a pilot representing him on the board and the associated character sheet. Each player will also have at his disposal 6 small robots called Bots which he will use during the game.

The game is played out as a succession of rounds during which the active player can play "routines" cards and / or activate his driver.

The "routines" cards are one of the original points of the game. They represent both the possibilities of actions of your bots and the defense programs of your pilot. If you want to activate your bots it will be necessary to play a card and to realize the action described on this one. If your pilot takes damage, you will need to discard a card.

The different bots you have under your control have special abilities. It's up to you to use them wisely to dominate your opponents in the arena.

The RoninBot has advanced combat software, Jujitsu 2.0, which allows it to attack multiple opponents at once. 

The PushBot can move other Bots thanks to its Tesla pistons, but their programming prevents them from pushing a Pilot.

The ArachnoBot is equipped with an electromagnetic web allowing it to hack remotely.

The combat and hacking actions are resolved by a die roll. 

A bot that suffers a success to a combat roll is destroyed and removed from the arena. A pilot who suffers a success to a combat roll must discard a "routine" card.

A bot or terminal that suffers a success in hacking changes sides. The successful hacker places a possession marker of his color on the base of the hacked bot or terminal.

At the end of his turn, the active player draws 2 "routine" cards. When a player finishes his deck of "routine" cards the game ends.

In order to determine the winner, players score points in the game and at the end of the game.

Each terminal under your possession at the beginning of your turn grants you a victory point. Each bot under your possession, at the end of the game, grants you a victory point.

The player with the highest number of victory points wins the game. Congratulation to him but the glory is short-lived because soon another fight will take place!

With the accumulated experience on the various projects and to serve you as soon as possible and in the best conditions, the shipments will be made by Meeple logistic.

What is crowdfunding? 

The goal of crowdfunding is to fund a project that would not exist without your support. So if we reach the amount needed for funding, the project will emerge because it will allow us to launch a first production of the game! You are therefore active in the finalization of this project that we have developed within our young company.

Depending on the success of the campaign, we will be able to develop more content through additional miniatures and game rules, which will be exclusive to this fundraising campaign (to thank you for participating), or which will allow to have new products and add even more depth to the complete game! Thus, we count on you to speak to your friends and family and allow this campaign to reach a lot of levels! You will be the first beneficiaries!

Participating in Crowdfunding is not similar to buying in a store where you immediately leave with the product you bought. Here you are actively involved in the creation of a new product and you participate totally in a great adventure but also a human one!

Why crowdfunding?

The environment of the board game is booming. In 3 years of existence, Happy Games Factory managed to find a place in this environment by developing board games, and more particularly, games with miniatures.

Indeed we are passionate about games and miniatures and we always liked this support that allows us a better immersion in the game: whether in our strategic choices or in our behavior, it will be always more difficult to sacrifice a token if we like it or if we have put a little part of us painting it carefully!

So the board game with miniatures is our passion but it has a setback, the cost. Indeed the investments on a board game with miniatures are much more important with for example the creation of very expensive molds. At the same time, it is sometimes difficult for a young company like ours to get a traditional financing. So we need you to help us cover the creation of the molds, the prints and the prints of the first copies that you will hold in your hands!

Risks and challenges

Most of this project and its elements to be unlocked have already been created and tested.


Our company already has a big experience in publishing and producing metal, plastic or resin miniatures. 

We will build on all our relations to run this project. 


Production risks:


The resin prototypes for all the miniatures proposed in this Kickstarter have already been made, or are being made at the moment.
We will thus be able to start the production for these elements within a short time frame.


Our experience with the many news waves of Eden is a good guarantee of our expertise.
In order to ensure the deadlines are met.All miniatures will be produced in plastic, and all the sculpture are already done .

All production steps will be done in china with factory we already work and have perfect feedback .

Learning from our previous Kickstarters, we decided that we would work with Meeple Logistic, a specialist in the KS project's shipping !
