Description Edit | History

Robo Battle Pigs is a game in which the object is to destroy your opponent's Robo Battle Pig by inflicting five points of damage with your laser or powerful robot fist. It was a finalist in the 2001 8×8 Game Design Competition sponsored by About Board Games, Abstract Games Magazine, and the Strategy Gaming Society.

Robo Battle Pigs is a lighthearted programmed movement battle game played on an 8x8 board using 1 token with a distinct front for each player. Players program a sequence of 5 moves for their Robo Battle Pig(RBP) using pen & paper, then simultaneously execute the program 1 step at a time. RBPs may move in several directions, fire a laser, swing their snout, rest, or regenerate. When an RBP is damaged, it loses one programming step. When 5 points of damage have been received, the RBP is destroyed. Last pig standing wins.

This is what happens when you let the idea "I can make this better" fester in your head for over a year. I am posting this so I won't nearly lose it again (eg. HD crash). I there is any interest, I will post some nice versions of the Rules and Player pages. Yeah! This is my first post to BGG.
