Update (8/22): IDW Games has announced the RRROAR-TASTIC news that they'll be releasing "Reptar Rampage", their expansion pack to the Nickelodeon Splat Attack! Miniatures game, on Wednesday 30th January 2019! Scroll down (or click here) for the details!

Nickelodeon’s Splat Attack! is a fast and frantic food fighting board game for 2 to 4 players, designed by Jonathan Ying (Star Wars Imperial Assault, Doom The Board Game) and featuring characters from Rugrats, Invader Zim, SpongeBob SquarePants, The Wild Thornberrys, Hey Arnold!, CatDog, The Angry Beavers, Rocket Power, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, The Ren & Stimpy Show, and Rocko’s Modern Life!

In Splat Attack, players will take control of a team of 4 characters, grab a hand of food cards, and load up their team with Cool Points. Cool Points range in value from 0 to 3 points, and can be stolen from your characters when they get hit with food! However, additional Cool Points can be collected by reaching key locations on the game board.

When hit with food, splat tokens must be placed on the defending character. Placing these tokens strategically will be key to your success, as your character’s grid space is limited. Once a character’s grid is fill, the character is splatted and out of the game.

Players that are able to get the last hit in and splat a character, earn a golden Cool Point. Once the last golden Cool Point is taken, the game ends, and all players add up their Cool Points to determine a winner. The game takes roughly around 45-60 minutes to play, and is recommended for ages 14+.

IDW Games announced Nickelodeon’s Splat Attack! at San Diego Comic Con 2017, with the game hitting Kickstarter in May 2018. Every Pledge in IDW Games' Kickstarter campaign includes the Reptar Rampage Expansion, the classic cartoon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and a set of all Stretch Goals!
