Kabuto Sumo Board Game
Take on the role of a tough beetle with a bad attitude and something to prove as you battle for supremacy in the ring and your place in the pantheon of legendary wrestlers.
Kabuto Sumo is a slide/push game where your goal is to push your opponents out of the ring. Pushing discs may seem straightforward, but you’ve got to make sure you choose the right wrestler for the match, craft a strategy, and quickly adapt to changes. Each wrestler is based on a real life insect and their physiological defense mechanisms. They all have special signature moves which introduce wild variables and uniquely shaped pieces that can dramatically influence the gameplay - so make sure you use them wisely!
It’s quite simply the greatest disc-pushing insect sumo wrestling game ever made.
Choosing Your Wrestler
Choosing which wrestler to play as is one of the best and most important parts of the game. Each insect has a signature move with special advantages that connect to their real-life physiological features. These signature moves come uniquely shaped playing pieces that can dramatically affect the physics of the game.
And they play a role in shaping the strategy. It’s up to you choose what your types of pieces you want to knock off the board and how and when you deploy your signature move. Will you play your move earlier in the game to set the tone or wait and use it as a finishing move?

Imagine a game of billards, but the 8 ball is a pin ping ball. Imagine a game of shuffleboard, but half the discs are frisbees. Imagine a coin-dozer arcade game, but someone can steal your quarters. It’s an exciting combination of physicality, strategy, and luck.
