Some people would rather work with others rather than compete against them. That's certainly fine, as there are plenty of cooperative games out there to choose from. Soon, there will be another one in the form of Megaton Mashup, a new way to play Monsterpocalypse that pits you and a friend against an evil monster on the map. In this preview, we get a look at how team building works in the game.
From the post:
In a game of Megaton Mashup, there are three monsters and 20 units. One monster is the villain, and the other two are controlled by the players. Each player chooses 10 units to go with their monster, and the overall pool of 20 units can be used by both players throughout the game. This means that if one player uses a Destroyer monster and the other a Protector, they can both have access to all the units in the game. As a result, there are hundreds of possible groupings to play with. I can’t exactly have an entire model line in a board game kit, though, so I limited myself to six monsters and 40 units.
