Robot Battles has been staging robotic combat
competitions (mostly) around the southern United States.
Battles is one of the oldest continuously running
robotic combat competitions in the world. We
proudly trace our roots to the
Denver Mad Scientists Club
and are a direct descendent of the "Critter
Crunch" robotic competition held every year at MileHiCon
in Denver, which began back in 1987 (and is still going
we have scheduled events in Atlanta at
as well as
in Chattanooga at
years, we have held over 60 events at conventions, Maker Faires, and game clubs in
Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, Florida,
Colorado, and as far away as Barcelona, Spain.
just what makes Robot Battles different from other
robotic events? Well, we don't have a TV show, we don't
have supermodels, and we don't have huge cash prizes.
What we do have is a creatively unique host, some of the
most imaginative builders and designers in the sport,
and the most involved audiences in the country (in our
humble opinion). And, of course, lots and lots of very
intense one-on-one mechanical mayhem matches. Which is
what it's all about.
As always, if you have any
about the newly updated and
or future events, please feel free to
contact us directly,
ask us on
Facebook, or join our
Yahoo! Group. And while
you're at it, how about
doing a little shopping?

event, 10 a.m. for the Monday competition).
Also, we'll have some special prizes this year
for the winners of each weight class, which
we're pretty excited about. Without giving away
the surprise, let's just say it involved both a
metal forge and several 3D printers...
those that want some education along with their
entertainment, we'll be at the
Faire on Saturday, September 9th at
the First Tennessee Pavilion with a full MicroBattles competition, along with workshops and demos by our experienced builders.
