Champions aren’t made, they’re built!

Each round, the bots will lock onto a target and roll dice to execute attacks. However, the tougher the attack you attempt, the more difficult it is to pull off. One false move and you might malfunction, causing damage to your own bot! After launching an attack against one enemy, you must strike at all the others before you can return to your original target. Through cunning moves and swift strikes, you will be able to activate the secret powers in the arena and eliminate the competition. You can also take advantage of Tech cards to give you an edge when facing off against an opponent. The last bot standing takes home the electric glory!

(Note: Headline a little misleading. Game supports 2-4 players)
Gekido: Bot Battles is a competitive robot fighting game. Players move around the board and attack each other, slowly chipping away at hit point pools until one remains. The game is pretty fast (20-45 mins once you get the rules down). Combat mechanics are borrowed from Yahtzee, with 6 dice determining your attack (the rarer the dice combos, the more damage you do to an opponent). Cards are acquired throughout play, and can be used to hurt your opponents chances, give you re-rolls, or redirect damage to other players.
- The robot figures are diverse, and of excellent quality. The powers are nicely balanced. You get two "offensive", two "defensive", and two "manipulator" bots.
- Most game mechanics are well thought out: Bots are balanced nicely, the arena pieces are modular, and offer incentive for players to knock each other around the game field and hold particular spots, cards can be held and if played cleverly can dramatically change the flow of play. I particularly liked the targeting system, which makes you target a different player each turn to keep players from ganging up on each other.
- Cards were printed on cheaper quality paper, made them flimsy. I could see them tearing and bending after repeated plays.
- Rules could use some minor clarification. We had a few hangups where we wren't sure when/if a particular ability applied to a situation.
Overall, this was a great little game. I hope they offer expansions with newer bots and different arena tiles in the future. I would also be interested in seeing a retooling of the rules to allow up to 6 players, although the board would need to be enlarged to allow this.
