About

Do you love Robots? Have we got a game for you!!

Feel the power as you command a Robot army which grows in strength and resources. Engage in Long Range attacks, Robot vs Robot battles, and resource management to gain control of the whole Robot Empire.
This is a fast paced sci-fi card game set in a large space age universe of Robots, Human Agents, Monster Mercenaries, Super Weapons, Mining Activities and so much more. With imagery right out of 1950's science fiction, players will get swept up and immersed in this colorful retro Sci-Fi arena.

Besides having a fairly unique theme of Robot armies, this expandable card game also has a new "power" management system which does not rely on luck of the draw to have enough energy to use your cards. How you handle your power resources will affect your gaming strategy.

 Game Cards consist of 100 colorful cards:

  • Robot Cards (Strongest fighters)

  • Human Agents (Humans that perform actions)
  • Super Weapons (Name says it all)
  • Upgrade Components  (Install upgrade cards into your Robots)
  • Equipment (Base Equipment can be Long Range weapons, Force Fields, Power Coin Mining, etc)
  • Mining Moon cards (mine for Power Coins)
  • A Turn Phase card and Card Legend

Game Play:

With the right Strategy and Robot Empire cards, you can conquer the universe!!

Robot Empire is primarily a strategy battle game. It takes place in a universe where robot armies are fighting for total control. You will take command of your army and battle your opponent with Long Range weapons, Robots, Monster Mercenaries, Agents and Super Weapons. 

Power Management in the game is centered around Power Coins (made of a special energizing metal which is mined to create the Power Coins). 

Equipment cards are used to build a strong player Base. Powerful bases will have Long Range weapons, Mining and Minting, and Force Fields. Whether you spend your Power Coins on Robots for attacking or Base Equipment (like Force Fields for defense) all depends on you!

Moon Mining can be performed to mine a harvest of Power Coins from these orbital moons. However, it will take a flying Robot (diverted from any attack or defense for 2 turns) to accomplish this mining.

Unique Features:

 Game Strategies:

Deploying the right blend of fighters, timing of long ranged attacks, and proper power management are all crucial to your game play. Can you get Mines and Mints into your Base and protect them with Force Fields? Will you divert some Robot to land on Moons and perform mining? Those would all be powerful strategies!

Deck Building

This complete Deluxe Set comes with 100 cards which is enough for 2 to 4 people to play immediately sharing the main deck. To add to the fun, a second set can be purchased which allows 2,3, or 4 people to customize a deck with just the right blend of Robots or Force Fields, or Power Management, etc.

What's in the Future

We are next planning an expansion set called Robot Empire: Monsters Revolt. This expansion will include many strong Monsters which will allow players to build Monster heavy decks for a Robots vs Monster battle scenario. The Monsters will no longer be mercenary servants of the Robots but will instead join the battle for control of the Empire! Don't miss it!

Risks and challenges

The game is more than 95% complete (art, design, and gameplay). There will be no delays in reaching 100% very soon. Though this is my first physical board game heading for production, I have developed and released several digital games for iOS, as well as designed, developed, and produced 2 web applications concerning comic books (see my website for details), and I feel confident to deliver a quality product on a deadline.

My manufacturer of choice is Whatz Games (www.whatzgames.com). They are very experienced and well known in the business with a great reputation. My guy Aaron has helped tremendously and put up with lots and lots of questions and game design tweaking!!
