A look inside the box of the board game Robotech Force of Arms from Harmony Gold and Solar Flare Games.
This two-player only Robotech Card game is based on the first Robotech series, the Macross Saga. This game features art from this classic anime.
Disclosure: Solar Flare Games sent me a copy of this game along with some other review copies I requested.
What do you get with a copy of Robotech Force of Arms, a Macross board game?
In Robotech: Force of Arms take on the role of either the brave Robotech Defense Forces (RDF) or the warrior Zentraedi.
You and your opponent maneuver your warships and deploy your forces endeavoring to gain supremacy. With fearless heroes and commands, you can turn the tide of the battle in your favor.
Will you defend the Earth as the valiant RDF? Or will you attempt to destroy the Earth, capture the SDF-1, and recover the secrets of Protoculture as the giant Zentraedi?
Players are trying to destroy their opponent’s ships while also successfully defending their own ships in this sector of space. Players take turns tactically moving ships around. Strategically placing their attack and defense fighter cards to defend their own ships and destroy those of their enemy and using their hero and command cards to win the day. The player with the most combined points in defended and successfully destroyed ships wins.
Once the players have finished the Tactical, Token, and Command/Hero phases they tally up the victory points for their Fleet Ships they were able to successfully defend. They then add the victory points for the enemy ships they were able to successfully destroy. The player with the most points wins!
