Giant robot alert! We have giant robot alert! Try and keep calm. Arcane Wonders is taking pre-orders for Critical Mass, their new mech-on-mech combat board game. This new simultaneous-play game puts you in control of your own custom-built mech, with plenty of weapons and other options to give you an advantage. They've also got an expansion pack, Raijin vs Archon, that you can get along with the core box.
From the website:
Critical Mass is a game of hard-core, heavy-hitting Mech-on-Mech combat. As the pilot of a massive war machine, you must head out into the irradiated wastes and destroy your opposition. Behind the control panel, you must carefully choose the card you play each turn to attack your opponent, defend against their weapons, perform special actions, or enhance your Mech.
- Expand your arsenal with Critical Mass: Raijin vs Archon and play with 3 or 4 players!
- Featuring simultaneous play with Mech customization on the fly, the tension stays high until the final armor plate is incinerated!
- Choose the cards you play strategically, or you’ll find yourself on the receiving end of a laser barrage!
