Help bring the indoor arena game "Battle Tank Arena" to life via Indiegogo

Sponsored post

Hi, this is John Kennedy, the creator of Battle Tank Arena. I spent 10 years in the Military. If you look at the video above, you may notice I'm wearing an Air Force jacket and you may be wondering "What gives?" Well it's true, I do have a love of airplanes, but I also LOVES tanks! This is the full-size mock-up of the tanks that will be used in our new game arena.

This is a new immersive game experience that is like no other amusement you have experienced. You climb into a battle tank the size of a small car and take it into the two-acre indoor battle arena against 19 other tanks and their commanders for a 20-minute battle to see who is the best and who is left!

Your ammo is 500 rounds of RFID encoded 3" rubber balls. You have a top speed of 5-7! mph with obstacles and mazes that an enemy could be lying in wait for you. For every 3 hits your sensors take, your speed and guns slow down one percent, after 300 sensor hits your dead, but it is a lot harder than you might think.

Bring your friends and take advantage of the tank to tank communications so you can work out a strategy against other tanks. Come play in a team tournament where 10 tanks against 10 of the enemy's in a 40 minute battle while you try to take out the other team's command center to shut down all their tanks for the quick victory or you can try to take them out one tank at a time, but neither will be easy!

The Tank, the Game and the Arena are like nothing else in the world.
