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

Faires, and game clubs in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama,
North Carolina, Florida, Colorado, and 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.
Robot Battles Events & Competitions
the 28th year in a row, we will be returning to
Atlanta for the
convention and our largest competition of the
Robot Battles 66 will feature all four
weight classes and will be held for two days
over the Labor Day Weekend at the
Hyatt Regency Atlanta
hotel, with the Ants and Beetles competing on
Sunday, September 2nd in the International
Ballroom, and the larger bots on Monday,
September 3rd in the Regency Ballroom (the same
locations we've been for the past several
years). Be sure to check our
regularly for updates as we get closer to the
Contestant registration will be handled onsite
the day of each event (9 a.m. for the Sunday
event, 10 a.m. for the Monday competition).
We'll have some special prizes this year for the
winners of each weight class, which we're pretty
excited about. And, yes, you'll need
at least a day pass
to the convention to attend or compete.
