Mechs vs Minions
Would you look at these ridiculous little mechs?
I have no idea what the backstory is, if there is one. Fully cooperative sorta-kinda legacy version of good old Roborally, where you work together to solve an ever more elaborate puzzle. Then you open a sealed envelope and learn more crazy tricks to solve an even more elaborate puzzle. Minions are a part of the story. I know nothing of League of Legends, who produced this game, but one of our players walked in tonight, took one look, and said “oh it looks like League of Legends.” I’ll Google it later.
We got through the tutorial and could not solve the first sealed envelope. First attempt was ridiculously close but one player misread his command line (the river of cards you’re accumulating through the game to achieve your goal) and we lost at the last moment. Then we ran out of time, sad emoji.
I thought Scythe was overproduced but this is something else entirely. And somehow not outrageously priced. Well it is expensive but lordy, you should see the inside of this coffin box.
