Welcome to Battle Arena Show, a fun team-based strategy game played with fantastic miniatures! Battle Arena Show is a board game that incorporates strategy and action of the MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) video games. Two to six players organize themselves into two opposing teams, each with the goal of destroying the enemy’s base in order to win the game.

The key to victory is collaborative team-play and strategic reasoning. Each team is composed of three champions and twelve minions, represented by highly-detailed miniatures, which may be painted, permitting the players to personalize their unique collection!

A Spartan general charging against an outlaw half man-half machine? A sorceress, the daughter of dragons, blazing up through plasma shots? The werewolf hunter surrounded by the tentacles of the unborn? You don´t believe it? Come on in, come on in, the show has only just begun...  

In a dystopian future, the most famous heroes of all times are forced into participating in a macabre television show where they will be pitted against each other in a bloody combat arena. Only the heroes that demonstrate courage, power and astuteness may free themselves and win the coveted title of Battle Arena Master.

The backers who pledge for the FIRST BLOOD or higher pledge level will receive one extra item card, "Alias, The Blue Rabbit"!

  *The game will be available in English by default. To receive it in  French, German or Spanish add 3€ to your pledge. After the campaign ends we will ask you through our pledge manager which language do you want to receive.

  *Note: if you want to acquire an addon just increment your pledge by adding the corresponding amount. When the campaign ends we will ask you, through our pledge manager, the addons you want exactly.

Rules

 http://battlearenashow.com/sites/default/files/rules_eng_low.pdf

Please be aware that this is an alpha version Rulebook. It is not final.This rules only consider matches for 6 players. The final versión will include the rules for 2 to 6 players. Rules may still be tweaked and changed, layout and graphics may still be altered. The rulebook layout and graphic work is still in development and all aspects are subject to improvements.

All the members of the team who are working on this project are great fans of tabletop games and play regularly. Also, we have several years of experience in the development of video games. We have learned that board games and video games are not so different. In both cases, there is a map or board where the action occurs, pawns or characters controlled by the player, and rules which the player must follow in order to achieve the game’s ultimate goal. We think that when a great game is being designed, it is necessary to understand the world of games in depth. Battle Arena Show is a board game for gamers developed by gamers!

When we decided to develop our own board game, none of us imagined the immense workload that this project would entail. After three years of work and countless (and satisfying) afternoons of testing, we finally have a great game in hand that is ready to be manufactured. We have now reached the main obstacle – financing. We hope to use Kickstarter to pay for the expensive manufacturing costs. Kickstarter can help us realize our dream, and you can be a part of making Battle Arena Show a reality!


As we can’t know how many stretch goals will be unlocked, and which will be the exact size and weight of the package, we will be charging shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. We will collect this via our pledge manager after the campaign ends.

In order to reduce shipping costs we will ship your rewards from different locations: from USA (USA backers), from Canada (Canadian backers), from Spain (EU backers) and from China (rest of the world).

Risks and challenges

The main risks in any project of this size are the delays, such as:

• Delays in the game design: in order to avoid delays in the game design, we have not started the Kickstarter campaign until the game rules, art, design, gameplay balance and testing have been finished. The game is completely ready for manufacturing.
• Delays in the manufacture: these delays are not controlled by us, but rather by the factory where the game is to be manufactured. We are working hard to minimize delays by choosing a factory with large experience in boardgame manufacturing rather than a cheaper one. In order to further expedite the process, we have already sent all the graphic files to this factory, where they have been validated. The manufacturing process is ready to start as soon as the Kickstarter campaign ends.
• Delays in the shipping: as above, the delays in shipping do not depend on us. To minimize shipping delays, we have decided to work with highly-established freight and shipping companies.

Throughout the campaign and until the last shipment is made, we will continue working to our best in order to achieve the maximum satisfaction from all those who have placed their trust on us.
