September Brings ‘Unmatched: Battle of Legends Volume One’ to Your FLGS

Unmatched: Battle of Legends Volume One (Mondo Games/Restoration Games)A unique looking battle game is on the horizon from Mondo Games and Restoration Games. In Unmatched: Battle of Legends Volume One, players each take on the role of a legendary character (Alice, King Arthur, Medusa, or Sinbad) to do battle using asymmetrical fighting styles. The game is for two or four players, ages 9+, plays in 20-40 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $39.95 when it hits stores in September.

From Restoration:

In battle, there are no equals. Unmatched is a highly asymmetrical miniatures fighting game for two or four players. Each hero is represented by a unique deck designed to evoke their style and legend. Tactical movement and no-luck combat resolution create a unique play experience that rewards expertise, but just when you’ve mastered one set, new heroes arrive to provide all new match-ups.

Battle of Legends, Volume One features four heroes. King Arthur sacrifices cards to power up his attacks and gets some timely assistance from Merlin’s magic. Alice is back from Wonderland with a giant vorpal blade and the Jabberwock by her side as she grows and shrinks to gain advantages on attack and defense. Medusa is happy to attack from range and let her harpies hound you, but just one devastating glance could end the battle quickly. Sinbad grows in power as he gains experience on each of his voyages.

Combat is resolved quickly by comparing attack and defense cards. However, each card’s unique effects and a simple but deep timing system lead to interesting decisions each time. The game also features an updated version of the line-of-sight system from Tannhäuser for ranged attacks and area effects.

The game includes a double-sided board with two different battlefields, pre-washed miniatures for each hero, and custom life trackers that’s brought to life with the stunning artwork of Oliver Barrett and the combined design teams of Restoration Games and Mondo Games.
