Corey and Lyle are joined by Bradly from LionWing Publishing to talk about their latest Kickstarter success in Sainome Colosseum R English Edition.
About the Game
The kingdom’s greatest warriors have come from far and wide to do combat and determine the fiercest of them all. Each has a personal reason to compete in the tournament, but one thread unites them all – the chance to be called colosseum champion.
Sainome Colosseum R is an ultra-accessible and fast-paced combat game for 2-4 players that allows players to take on chosen character roles, each with an assortment of individual skills and abilities, to do battle with one another in an epic gladiatorial showdown. Using action selection, hand management, card drafting, and dice rolling, Sainome Colosseum Rgives player’s important decision points while blending strategy, luck, and balanced replayability. As you explore the game, you’ll discover the strengths and weaknesses of each fighter as well as interesting combinations that can put your opponents down for the count.
On each turn, a player chooses two out of five actions, resolves both, then discards to meet the hand limit requirements. To gain the advantage in battle, gear can be attached to your character by physically placing equipment cards on any side of your fighter with a corresponding slot. These equipment cards can then activated using a unique dice mechanism to attack your opponents and initiate a wide range of special effects. Adding further to this dynamic gameplay is the ability for each character to transform from their beginning Normal Form to a heightened Awakened Form, which grants skill upgrades. The player who best utilizes these various systems to reduce their opponent’s HP to 0 is ultimately the winner!
For fans of hard-hitting, player-to-player combat, Sainome Colosseum R checks off all the boxes while adding new and innovative mechanics to the genre. This streamlined design creates a memorable PvP combat experience, giving players numerous important decision points along the way, and creates a narrative arc that leads to countless matches.
