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.
