You play as one of eight heroes, each with different combat styles, abilities, and upgrades. You roll and re-roll dice, trying to complete combinations that enable specific attacks and deal damage to your opponent. The more complicated a combination is to complete, then the more damage it deals. So, like Yahtzee, each go you must select and re-roll your dice carefully to inflict the highest possible damage.
As you play, you collect cards and combat points that enable you to upgrade your hero, unlocking new powers and new attacks. The first player to lose all fifty of their health points is defeated, so you need to balance attacking your opponent with healing and upgrading your own character.
As each character has such a complex set of abilities, this is no simple slugfest. You must carefully plan out each action that you perform, whether it is rolling dice, using combat points, or upgrading your character, because this is a fight to the death that takes place over a thousand little decisions.
Play Time: This game will take between 20 minutes and 40 minutes to complete.
9+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Younger players need to be able to choose how to use their dice rolls, which powers to enable and what upgrades to buy. They also need to be resilient enough to deal with being damaged by opponents.
