Fight to Rule the Cyber-Arena!
Four teams enter the field, but only one survives in the arena sport of the future! Program your tanks, then set them loose to destroy your enemies. Fire weapons, activate turrets and radar, even self-destruct your tanks. Remember to defend yourself the last surviving command post wins!
Robotanks is a strategy boardgame of cyber-arena combat. Players control a team of four tanks, each controlled by a stack of command cards that form the tank's repeating program. Cards order tanks to move, turn, fire weapons, or use special equipment, which create a variety of strategies. Will you use a simple frontal assault with cannons and mortar? A careful advance, using targeting programs to give more autonomy? A confusing diversion with viruses and scanners? Your tanks will keep doing the same thing until you reprogram them, so choose wisely...
