In the grim darkness of the future, there is only endorsement deals. Iron League is a new fantasy sports board game that’s up on Kickstarter. In it, players are in charge of their own Iron League team and must bash, beat, and outscore their opponents to the title. Only through dogged determination will you be the best in this metal-on-metal game.
The goal of the game is to score more points than your opponent. Points are acquired a couple different ways, which allows for various play styles and team builds. Do you want to be more agile and precise, scoring goal after goal to get points? Or do you just want to chuck the ball as hard as you can at opposing robots, also giving you the potential to score points? The choice is up to you.
The basic game comes with 6 robot players with interchangeable arms, 3 game boards, 1 goal square, 24 event cards and 38 action cards, 2 action dice, 1 plasma ball counter, two scoreboard counters, 8 damage counters, 1 summary sheet with scoreboard, 6 pilot markers, and the rulebook. The “standard” pledge is $60 (for early-birds, which there are a few left), and the campaign has 24 days left to go.
