Battle Arena Show

Hello friends!

My name is Ruben Segura and I want to show the board game that I have developed with 3 partners. I hope you like it!

Battle Arena Show will be released through Kickstarter on February 2nd at 12:00 pm EST. The game recreates the experience with the MOBA games such as League of Legends, DOTA or Heroes of the Storm and moves it into the board in an effective manner.

 

A Spartan general charging against an outlaw half man-half machine? A sorceress, the daughter of dragons, blazing up through plasma shots? The werewolf hunter surrounded by the tentacles of the unborn? You don´t believe it? Come on in, come on in, the show has only just begun…

In a dystopian future, the most famous heroes of all times are forced into participating in a macabre television show where they will be pitted against each other in a bloody combat arena. Only the heroes that demonstrate courage, power and astuteness may free themselves and win the coveted title of Battle Arena Master.

Battle Arena Show is a team game for up to 2-6 players who will compete with each other in order to destroy the hordes and enemy bases. Players will take on the role of various heroes with unique abilities and attributes and must equip themselves with different objects and evolve as the game progresses in order to beat the opponent and destroy his base.

Koti Games reveals that its first Stretch Goal in the upcoming campaign on February 2nd in Kickstarter will be a new map that will include a cooperative mode where one or more players must face hordes of different enemies trying to destroy the ally core. Stay alert because they also inform us that the campaign will have a advantageous price for the first 48 hours. Share it!

I hope they do better this time around, as it is an interesting looking game.

 

Although I have to admit I don't care for any of their male sculpts; way too top-heavy with way too short legs.

About this project



08035df4d516dde1850228422458b74a_origina

Welcome to Battle Arena Show, a fun team-based strategy game played with fantastic miniatures! Battle Arena Show is a board game that incorporates strategy and action of the MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) video games. Two to six players organize themselves into two opposing teams, each with the goal of destroying the enemy’s base in order to win the game.


The key to victory is collaborative team-play and strategic reasoning. Each team is composed of three champions and twelve minions, represented by highly-detailed miniatures, which may be painted, permitting the players to personalize their unique collection!


Battle Arena Show takes place in an alternative reality, where the discovery of time travel allows for unprecedented technological advances. In a world devastated by warfare, a morbid television program broadcasts battles to entertain the masses. There are champions from all over the world and from every imaginable era in each opposing team, but all must strive to firstly destroy the enemy base in order to earn the coveted title of Battle Arena Master.

I remember this one. I still don't like the relative size of sculpts, with the guys looking like jacked-up Hulk Hogans next to those anorexic supermodels. I know that's really kind of par for the course with miniatures, but somehow it really leaps out at me here.

 

Edit: Which is a shame. The game idea looks more interesting than many others. Oh well.

Kinda funny that one of the stretch-goal figures is greyed-out, when it was already revealed in the first kickstarter.   :;):

Is there a miniatures only level, or was there one is the first KS? I like a couple of the heroes and the minions, but would probably never play the game...

This is shipping, however they apparently had a big problem with mislabeling packages, and lucky me, apparently I am one of them:

 

 Hello backer of Battle Arena Show,

 As we published in the last Kickstarter update we detected some errors in the shipping addresses.

 The parcels of some backers were sent to the address of other backers.

 We are contacting you because you are one of the affected backers by this problem. When you receive the parcel you will see that the shipping address is yours but the name is not your name. The box can be identified easily because it has printed the Battle Arena Show logo. If that is the case proceed in the following way:

  1. If you have not received the parcel yet, when you receive it reject. That will cause that the parcel returns to our facilities. The logistics operator sends us the same tracking number that they send to you so we can track the parcel, and as soon as we verify that the parcel was rejected we will resend your correct reward.

  2. If you already received the parcel and accepted it, please notify us in order to send a postman to take it and return to us, and resend the correct one.

Thank you for your cooperation and apologies for the inconvenience.

Sincerely,
Koti Games team.

 

Unfortunately, I haven't received any shipping info even though the letter says I should have. It'll end up costing them, I work nights and can't meet the postman (I'd consider staying up if I knew when it was arriving). It seems strange that if it was caught before delivery they couldn't recall the affected orders.

Just curious if you ever did receive a shipment.

Since they sent me the email in September but I never received anything I figured I would just wait, assuming they had recalled the missent packages and would send me my order eventually. I got tired of waiting and finally sent an email Jan 20th.

 

They responded the next day, "Your parcel was sent months ago and you should be received it a while ago. We tried to find the error with no success, so we will send you a new parcel ASAP. Sorry for the issue.

 
Kind regards,

Koti Games team"

 

I was a little surprised but fast-forward three weeks and I get an unusual package. It was a box in a very sturdy white sack. Inside was the game plus the add-ons (and a small box of stretch goals). All of the character minis are resin, the minions are a soft plastic similar to bones. The packaging is very nice, the game board and pieces look to be thick, good quality parts.

Three of the core minis with a Reaper mini for scale. The resin looks good, though it seems to be a bit on the fragile side for playing pieces. Still, the casting is pretty nice, it looks easy to trim, and there aren't a lot of pieces (most minis have one arm that needs attaching).

The minion pieces. They are sturdy, bendable plastic very similar to bones.

Some of the KS stretch goal figures.

I picked up the final hero pack, plus Onigiri because I couldn't resist the Kill Bill mini.

 

So it ended up being a year and a bit late, but I'm still glad I backed, it's a good looking game plus some nice, paintable minis.

      Hello everyone we are venturing into the Kickstarter realm again with a fully digital to cast project. Warning this one is on the artistic nude side, so be careful if at work or sensitive area...
       
      "In the desert realm of Tharaa, summer’s heat lies as heavily upon the lavish court of the Sultana as it does upon the simple shops and homes of her subjects. Yet they are the ones who rejoice with the cool evening zephyrs that race refreshingly through their markets stalls, tents, and villas; breezes that never seem to reach the perfumed halls of the Sultana’s court. On those stifling, windless, near endless days; comfort, pleasure, and even mere distraction elude the powerful ruler. Her great wealth, her many servants, and her countless possessions seem more burden than blessing. On those days when clothing itself seems a pointless effort, the beauty and power of the human form acts as reminder that modesty can be a needless vanity..."

      About
      The concept for Mother of Dragons was born a few years ago.
      I still recall seeing the beautiful illustration made by Stéphane Wootha Richard posted on his Facebook profile and I fell in love with her immediately – I knew immediately that I wanted to bring her to life in miniature form.
      Fortunately, Stéphane was also very excited about the idea of a collaboration.
      We were inspired and driven to start working on the project that we both felt so passionate about and now, with much pride we can finally share this project with you all.

      What you see here required 2 years of committed development, during which time, our team has created and implemented many variants until we made of it a full range, indeed in addition to the varied scale of the main subject , you will find unique versions such as the bust or the lovely "super deformed" miniature. In fact, this is the characteristic of all of our Kickstarter campaigns — we always enjoy experimenting with new products and offering you something you've never seen before.
      Every successful kickstarter campaign enable us to share our dreams with the most supportive community in the world.

      In Mother of Dragons you will find exciting new figures as well as numerous artefacts (artefacts? – I hear you say. Exactly)! Be ready for an ancient Dragon Jar, or a real dragon’s tooth. One thing is certain. They will not be the only exclusives to catch your attention.

      Now with your continued help and support; it’s time to bring this project to life!
      So why support this project?
      Well, first because you’re a hobbyist and a modeller and you can’t wait to lay your hands on a new figure.
      Second, because the Mother of Dragons will also appeal to your collector’s side; she will be the “queen” of your showcase, no matter the scale, you choose.
      Apart from the main subject of this campaign, as usual, we’re offering great deals, rewards, add-ons and freebies, indeed Kabuki Studio places great importance to Kickstarter and for this reason the benefits/conditions offered will never be seen again outside the campaign, not even in the pledge manager/late backer's option.

      In PDF format, you will qualify for guides related to your pledge’s scale; i.e. If you backed “Baby Dragon” pledge level, you will receive the painting guide for the 1/50 version; if instead you backed for “Dragon Host” you will receive them all. The artists in charge are:
      Riccardo Agostini (Italy) – 1/50 scale
      Keigo Murakami (Japan) – 1/24 scale
      Arnau Lazaro Azcarate (Spain) – bust (1/8 scale)
      Keigo Murakami (Japan) – 1/8 scale (full figure)
      You qualify for the guide even you have required the painted versions. Please be sure to provide a valid email address.

      KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE!
       
       
      What is this, and how does it work I hear you say?
      Well it’s simple. At some point during the campaign we will show some super-secret stuff that isn’t quite ready yet. You, as Kickstarter backers will have the exclusive first chance to grab some of this cool stuff.

      Any funds gathered from this boost will be added to the total campaign fund and will also go towards unlocking goodies for the qualifying pledges
       
       
      It’s simple, we need your support in order to fund the project and unlock all the amazing items we’ve designed!
      To donate, select a pledge amount and reward on either the right-hand side of a project page or after clicking the “Back this project” button and selecting “Continue”. From here you’ll be taken to a page where you can continue as a guest, or login if you already have an account.
      If you would like to continue as a guest, just enter your email address and select “Continue as Guest”.
      Next, fill in your payment details and take a minute to review your pledge details. When you’re ready, just click the green “Pledge” button and the job is done! Easy, isn’t it?

      During the campaign, thanks to your help, we will unlock several new rewards so you may want to review your current pledge, well how do you do that? To change your pledge amount, visit the project page and click the “Manage your pledge" button that appears next to your pledge amount and then select "Change your pledge" on the following page.
      From here, you’ll be able to adjust your pledge amount or choose a new reward tier you'd like to pledge for and your pledge amount will update automatically.
      If you don't want to receive a reward, select "Make a pledge without a reward" and enter your new pledge amount. Alternatively, you may change your pledge amount within the reward tier modal.

      Note: you are not adding to your existing pledge; the amount you enter will be the total amount collected if the project is successfully funded.
      Everything will be dispatched from Roma (Italy).
      You don’t have to be worried about customs tax because we’ll provide a special invoice for that purpose.
      All the pledges will be posted through DHL Express and the delivery time is brutally fast!
      18-24 hours for Europe
      2-3 days for rest of the world (customs clearance included)
      So even the delivery time is a “problem solved”.
      Average costs:
      up to 1kg to Europe 14.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to USA/Canada 19.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to Asia 31.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to Australia/South America 38.50 Euro
      We removed “Poste Italiane” from the carriers choice because the price difference is almost zero and the reliability of that carrier is particularly low, that means you could save 3 or 4 euro from shipping cost, but have great delays in your delivery or pay more in custom taxes, or even have the parcel lost.
