Army Construction: Each player brings up to 3 characters of 150 points each or less. Only one figure will be used in any particular round. We may play up to three 40 minute rounds. Any carded figure will work with the following exceptions:

  • No figure bigger that a peanut base.
  • No Colossal Size figures or team bases.
  • Any figures with special powers that put out bystanders, other figures, special markers, or terrain markers. Examples include: Captain Cold and his hindering terrain markers, Sea King and his water terrain markers, Monsieur Mallah and the Brain, or WS007 Spider-Man and his web special terrain markers. Figures with smoke cloud or barrier are fine.
  • The following characters are banned: NFAOS056 Nick Fury, WKD-027 Felix Faust, WKM-028 Doctor Strange, WF041 Mary Marvel, SLOSH039 Bizarro.

Please note that we will not be including standard objects in the game. To compensate for that, figures that can use super strength deal +1 damage in close combat attacks.

How to Play: All players will be on the same map. Each player rolls to determine who goes first , but that player does not choose a map. A map will be provided by the judge with additional starting zones added  for all players. Each player will only control one 150 point or less figure in each 40 minute round, but they can chose a different figure to play from round to round. If your figure is KOed before time expires you can put it back into play in your starting area on click 1 at the start of your next turn. Each players turn is limited to 60 seconds or less. The judge may move play to the next player immediately if a players turn lasts more than one minute.

You can score points by KOing opposing characters on your turn (or rarely by finding a heart container). Every opposing character that is KOed on your turn (by an attack or any other affect) adds one to your overall score. However, whenever you are KOed (whether or not it’s your turn) you subtract one from your overall score. For example, If you KO three characters during a round and you are KOed twice then your overall score for that round is +1. High Score Wins.

Weapons Falling from the Sky: To aid you in powering up your character, for this scenario, all characters gain the following Trait: “3… 2.. 1. GO!: At the start of your turn, if this character is at least 5 spaces away from its starting area, you MAY roll on the Equipment and Immediate Effects table.

What that means is that at the start of your turn you MAY roll 2d6  and consult the following table:

EQUIPMENT AND IMMEDIATE EFFECTS TABLE:

  • 2 – Poison Mushroom – Immediate Effect – You are immediately KOed (lose -1 to your overall score due to KO)
  • 3 – Bob-Omb – Immediate Effect – You and any other figures within 2 spaces are immediately dealt 2 unavoidable damage.
  • 4 – Hammer – Equipment – While equipped your character has: -3 speed, Earthbound, and Improved Movement: Ignores Characters. The equipped character may use quake as a free action with a locked damage value of 4.

You may not make any other attacks besides the free action quake.

Notes about the Equipment and Immediate Effects table:

  • You don’t have to roll on the Equipment and Immediate Effects table if you don’t want to. You can skip that step.
  • Immediate Effects are not optional.
  • Equipment you roll on to is immediately equipped to your character without any extra actions needed.
  • You may only have one piece of Equipment equipped at a time. If you roll a new piece of Equipment on the Equipment and Immediate Effects table you may choose to use that Equipment OR you may choose to keep using the equipment that you already have (or you can use nothing if you have nothing to start).
  • You may not “drop” equipment, but you may replace it with a different piece of equipment by rolling on the Equipment and Immediate Effects table at the start of your next turn.
  • If you are KOed you lose any Equipment you had.
