About

new tabletop strategy game set in the distant future, where minuscule robots - NanoBots - are the leading innovation in technology. Experiment with eight different disciplines to face off against foes. How will your creation fare against opposing NanoBot armies? Thwart your challengers from culminating their own linked army. Will your bots unite in victory, or is your NanoBot actually the weakest link?

NanoBot Battle Arena (PRIME) supports anywhere from 2-4 players:

  • 15x BLINK 38mm miniatures
  • 15x AEGIS 38mm miniatures
  • 15x FREEZE 38mm miniatures
  • 15x INFECT 38mm miniatures
  • 8x REACTION power 3 cards
  • 16x REACTION power 2 cards
  • 24x REACTION power 1 cards

NanoBot Battle Arena (OMEGA) is a standalone set, but can also be combined with PRIME to support a 2-8 player game.  It contains:

  • 15x GROW 38mm miniatures
  • 15x CHARGE 38mm miniatures
  • 15x BURN 38mm miniatures
  • 15x TWIST 38mm miniatures
  • 8x REACTION power 3 cards
  • 16x REACTION power 2 cards
  • 24x REACTION power 1 cards

Additional boxes can be combined for GREATER battles!

Images below are prototypes.  The final versions will have faction based colors.

Charge - Trample other NanoBots in your chain’s path, returning them to an opponent’s pile.

Freeze - Made an enemy? Give them the cold shoulder by preventing opponent(s) from enhancing their NanoBot play with their Reaction Cards during the next turn.

Burn - Like a Phoenix, scorch NanoBots on either end of an opposing player’s chain or destroy your pieces to rebuild from the ashes.

Aegis - Fortify your NanoBots, but don’t get too comfortable, though! Your opponents may use this ability to unfortify your army.

Blink - Now you see it. Now you don’t! Whisk an opponent’s NanoBots to a new location, disrupting their chain - or restore your own.

Twist - Twist and hear them shout! Turn an opponent’s NanoBot another direction to break or block their chain.

Infect - There are some things water just can’t wash away! The contamination will convert the infected bot to your chain.

Grow - Like a weed you just can’t kill, grow your chain by placing extra NanoBots on the playing surface during your turn.

ALERT!  Help us hit Stretch Goals to introduce Gray Circuit Cards.  They are neutral and have some amazing abilities.

Here's how the ad cards work: The ads are NOT invasive (we're Derpy, not crazy ). They are additional and separate cards unto themselves that are simply included in the box for one year. The ads are on the front and back of their own cards. Similar to how many collectible card games have additional cards in their booster packs and such. This pledge level is geared mostly toward online game retailers.  This level greatly helps us keep the cost of the game down for everyone.  So if you are considering it, please do not hesitate to ask us questions.

Ads should be family friendly, and contain no profane language or graphics.  We reserve the right to have ads revised.

DON'T FORGET: Surpassing stretch goals will increase the contents of each box!

Shipping our game internationally is very expensive. For example, shipping just one copy of our base game with various SWAG components to the UK will likely cost about $60. At our current levels, we're absorbing a significant portion of the overall cost.

Risks and challenges

As with any project, there are always risks. However, the risks with this one are minimal! We’ve already personally play tested the game through hundreds of completely grueling hours (because we clearly dislike playing games), asked all our friends to play, and have even taken it to other game developers for critique! We’ve completed our design and illustration work. We only need funding for putting on the finishing touches, completing production of the final game, and driving publicity to pique gamer interest. In other words, we did all the hard work first and reached a point where we need YOU (yes, you, reading right now) to help us complete this dream.
