Cardboard Robot Battle V

Feb 19, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - Feb 20, 2016 @ 1:00 am

| $18

An evening of Cardboard Carnage, Ring Girls, Awesome live music, inter-match shows, drink specials and so so much more.  This is our signature event where industrious nerds construct cardboard robots for the ultimate showdown.  6 Matches and our Battle Royal and when the dust settles one cardbot will emerge victorious!

THINGS TO KNOW
ABOUT THIS UNIQUE PUPPETRY EVENT
9 Contestants will build their own robot out of cardboard and packing tape. These are the only materials allowed!!  They should paint and decorate their robots, but more importantly they create cardboard killing machines.

Robots should be of “vehicle” design, similar to the Mars Rover or other type machines. Contestants are not allowed to create humanoid robot costumes. No Robocops here! This will give an unfair advantage, and be more akin to the human sport known as “boxing”.

Judges will award points for the most original and well designed robot.
2 Robots will enter the ring based on a “heavy weight- light weight” system. The winners will then proceed to a Battle Royal Round where all the champions will battle one another.
Robots may have moving parts, provided they are also made of cardboard.
The human pilots must be completely concealed within the robot. If they like they may expose their head at the pilot’s own risk. Helmets are strongly encouraged here.

All contestants are to have a “pit crew” of one. This person can make repairs between rounds, and offer the human sentiment known as “encouragement”. The pit crews are only allowed packing tape for repairs. No Spare Cardboard is allowed!!!
Rounds last 3 minutes.  When the human pilot is revealed, the battle is over.

The Robot that exposes his opponent’s pilot is the winner of the Battle.
The same rules apply for the Final Battle Royal: An exposed human means your robot is down for the count.
Our guest judges will make the call, and award our champions.
