GKR: Heavy Hitters Robot Combat Tabletop Game on Kickstarter

GKR: Heavy Hitters is the first tabletop game by Weta Workshop, best known for movies special effects like LOTR, Avatar and Mad Max. Cryptozoic and Weta are bringing you a tabletop game set in the sports-crazy dystopian future of Giant Killer Robots! Check out the Kickstarter video below:

The near-future is here, and Earth’s abandoned cities are now battlegrounds for the ultimate spectator sport: GIANT KILLER ROBOTS!

GKR: Heavy Hitters is a standalone game for 2 – 4 players. It combines high-quality collectibles with dice-rolling, mech-building and tactical play! Pilot your Heavy Hitter (the biggest, baddest robot on the board) and a squad of three Support Units through the ruins of an old city, competing to either wipe your opponent off the map or reduce four skyscrapers to rubble.
