About

 For all you Retro arcade fighter enthusiasts, Button Bashers Turbo is a trip down memory lane…

Button Bashers Turbo is a battery free, fast-paced, tabletop card game modeled after popular arcade style fighting games. Using turned based action, stylized strategic gameplay, and a little luck of the cards you will send your friends running to the change machine.

This adventure provides a simple and inexpensive way to rekindle those feelings of excitement and panic brought on from classic hand-to-hand gaming combat. Attack, Block or Switch characters to K.O. those salty scrubs. Similar to the combo lists posted on the sides of those retro arcade cabinets, each of the 12 unique characters has a personalized list of attacks to help you pummel your opponent into the ground… using cards!
