Traveling TOMY toy truck hosts play date for dads to play Battroburg and other video games in a decked-out man cave.
A 60-foot man cave docked inside a semi-trailer will occupy the Walgreen’s parking lot on the corner of Clark and Ashland in Chicago tonight (5440 N. Clark). Inside, dads will settle the score in a battle of thumbs in a promotional stunt by TOMY as part of their national publicity tour for Battroborg.
From the press release: “Battroborg is the first battling micro robot brand of its kind, leveraging advanced motion-control technology in combination with perennially popular robot and combat action. Battroborg takes players center ring, with two-handed motion-controlled nun chucks that let opponents dictate the robot’s every move with their jabs. The high-performance Borgs register every hit and indicate when the ultimate battling champion has succeeded.”
NYC Dads Group hosted one last week, and the tour ends in LA on September 12.
On September 10 in Chicago, Jim Higley of BobbleHead Dad will be going head-to-head with Al Watts of the National At-Home Dad Network. from 7:30-9:30. The first 20 dads to register on the Chicago Dads Group will get a night out, which is reason enough, and a 60-foot GameTruck equipped with flat-screen TV’s, video game systems, video games, and pizza.
