Arsenal: Arena Combat Backer Bonus Pack

Option choisie:
Print-and-Play PDF
Print-and-Play PDF + Card(s)

This is a set of 16 new cards (2 copies each of 5 Action cards, and 1 copy each of 6 Mech cards) you can use to expand and customize your Mech Deck in Arsenal: Arena Combat. These cards were originally unlocked as a bonus for backers during our Kickstarter campaigns, and now they can be yours!

The Action cards in this pack are Target Acquired, Range Advantage, Brace for Impact, Outmaneuver, and Tactical Retreat. You get 2 copies of each, and none of them have aspect restrictions (see the Rulebook for details), so that means you can use them in any deck.

The Mech cards in this pack are Oculus, Wolf Spider, Valkyrie, Royal Harvester, Stone Helix, and Sky Lancer.

These cards are an expansion component, and you will need the core game in order to use them. See below for an outline of everything that entails.

What do you need to play?

  • The official Arsenal Rulebook (or the free PDF)
  • The official Arsenal Gameboard & Tokens (though Arsenal can be played on any hex map, and with your own counters)
  • One Mech deck for each player (each one has different cards, which are interchangeable with cards from each other deck)
  • OPTIONALLY, the Backer Bonus Pack, to improve your custom deck options.
  • About 20 6-sided dice for each player
  • A pile of pennies, glass beads, poker chips, or other small bits to act as damage counters for everyone to share

What is Arsenal: Arena Combat?

arsenal logo

Arsenal: Arena Combat is an all new 2 to 6 player customizable card game with a fast-paced, explosive style of play. Arsenal is about strategy and tactics; it’s how you build your deck and how you play your cards that will lead you to victory.

Your Mechs fight it out in sanctioned tournaments, special arenas, and crowded stadiums. In the world of Arsenal, the Mechs and their pilots are celebrities, with rivalries and reputations. Big name sponsors fund these giant war machines by painting their logos all over them and paying for their ammunition, repairs, and upgrades. In the world of Arsenal, these Mechs are big business and popular sport.

How do you play?

In Arsenal, you take on the role of a pilot in a combat mech arena. This arena is represented by a small hex map (the game board). You move your Mech around on this map to gain an advantage against your opponent, and then play cards from your hand to attack or defend. You will manage your power levels (the resource used to play cards), and use all manner of tactics to win out against your opponent.

To play Arsenal, each player first chooses a Mech, then they each build a deck from the cards available to that Mech (not all Mechs are created equal). Next you and your opponent(s) shuffle your decks, grab 8 energy cards, a handful of 6-sided dice and damage counters, and put a token on the board that matches your Mech. Then you figure out who's going first and start playing!

  • Players take turns moving their Mech around the arena, and playing cards from their hand to represent things like lock-ons, deployable objects, or any number of actions and reactions.
  • On your turn, you play attack cards from your hand that represent both your weapons and your ammunition, provided your target is within the attack's effective range.
  • When an attack is played, all players have a chance to react to it, by playing their own cards that represent things like taking evasive maneuvers or bracing for impact.
  • After everyone has had a chance to react, the attack is resolved: the attacker and defender both roll a number of dice determined by the attack card, range, and other variables. Both players then add up the number of 1's and 6's they rolled.
  • The defender must meet or beat the attacker's roll in order to dodge the attack. If they don't, it hits, and their Mech takes damage! Repeat until only one Mech (or team) is left standing.

All cards have an energy cost. You have 8 energy to spend on every player's turn, but you also have the option to "burn" any or all of your 8 energy. Doing so could pay off big, but "burned" energy comes back at a much slower rate, leaving you open to counter attack.

Original electronic
Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
