You thought it was going to be just another day at work in the toy factory, but no: The corporate executives learned about the kanban methodology at a seminar. Convinced of its efficiency, they have reworked the entire production floor to take advantage of the benefits of kanban. They even brought in the manager from the local EV car plant, Sandra, as a consultant!

Now you must try to impress them all by becoming even more productive in the toy bot factory where you work. Maybe if you can exceed even their lofty expectations, you can get a supervisory position and get off the assembly line! It’s time to roll up your sleeves and get to work in the Bot Factory!

Bot Factory is a worker-placement game where 1-4 players compete to plan, manufacture, assemble, and market toy bots, all while under the watchful gaze of the new factory manager Sandra. It was designed by João Quintela Martins and Vital Lacerda, and inspired by the worker placement mechanics in Kanban EV.

As of June 28th, this project has raised $134,000 of their $100,000 goal. This project has 3 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $48, you will get one game.   To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/eaglegryphon/bot-factory-by-joao-quintela-martins-and-vital-lacerda?
