Game: Ax!om Arena Combat
Developer: Spencer Steeves
Ax!om Arena Combat is a card combat game. Each player has three fighters in the Arena, a deck of cards and three health cards that represent the health of each fighter. The players need to play cards into the arena (some of the cards can only be played in a specific round) and beat their opponents. When all fighters of a player are removed from the Arena or dead, there is a winner!
The game and the box look great. It is nice that all the different cards have different images on it, and that there are special powers. To win this game you need to have a tactic, because with just luck you aren’t going to make it. The downside off the unique cards is that there is a lot of information on each one. Therefor the game can be very slow sometimes and we needed to play it more than once to really understand it.
I don’t know if I’m going to play it a lot, just because combat card games are not really my thing, but if you like those games you need to check out the Kickstarter Page of Ax!om!
