Robot Battles has been staging robotic combat
competitions (mostly) around the southern United States.
We look forward to returning to Atlanta over the Memorial Day Weekend and once again
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
past 30 years, we have held nearly 70 events at conventions, Maker Faires, and game clubs in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama,
North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, Colorado, and even as far away as
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 or ask us on
Facebook. And while
you're at it, how about
doing a little shopping?
Robot Battles 71 @ Dragon Con Labor Day Weekend!
Hard to believe it, but Robot Battles will be
continuing our fourth decade of robotic combat
where it all started for us back in 1991: the
convention in Atlanta, Georgia over the Labor
Day Weekend of 2023!
Microbattles will be on Sunday morning at 10:00
in the Hyatt International Ballroom (load-in for
builders at 8:30) featuring the one and three
pound bots in our newly refurbished and updated
Robot Battles will be on Monday morning at 11:00
in the Hyatt Regency Ballroom (load-in for
builders at 9:00) featuring the twelve and
thirty pound bots.
As always, builder check-in and registration
will be handled on site the morning of each
event. The bracket format for each event will be
decided at that time based on the number of
entries (single elimination, double elimination,
will be available for both
Sunday and Monday for those who
cannot attend the entire weekend. You do need a
Dragon Con badge in order to attend or compete in
the event, but that also gets you into all the
rest of the con, which is fun!
We are looking forward to another
exciting and eventful Robot Battles, and we hope
to see you there!
