2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
This is a free event, no ticket is required.
ROBOT RISE! was successfully funded via Kickstarter on August 31, 2017. Expected availability is February, 2018. However, you get a chance to play it at CinCityCon months before anyone else can get their hands on it!
The Ministry of Discord, an international alliance of archvillains, has an opening for a new member. Each player in ROBOT RISE! is a mad scientist hoping to earn that coveted seat (and win the game) by eliminating all the other players.
The 108-card deck contains dozens of unique cards, including:
– Secret Lairs: Protect these from being destroyed by your opponents
– Giant Robot Parts: Assemble a giant robot to attack opponents or defend against attacks
– Raid, Freeze Ray, and Mind Control are nuisance attacks that reduce your opponents’ effectiveness
– Defense Cards: The best offense is a good defense…sometimes.
– Spy Attack!
– And many others…
Need part of a Giant Robot to carry out an attack? Call for a temporary alliance with one of your opponents. After all, the enemy of your enemy…can sometimes be useful.
Gameplay consists of taking one action (typically playing a card), following through on the implications of that action, and then ending your turn by replenishing your hand (i.e., drawing one or more cards). The game ends when just one player has any secret lairs remaining.
