New Unmatched Set Features Pulp Adventures, Kickstarter Campaign to Launch March 23rd
Restoration Games has just announced a new set for Unmatched, called Unmatched Adventures: Tales To Amaze. The game features cooperative play in addition to its standard competitive mode. The Kickstarter campaign for this new set is scheduled to launch on March 23, 2023. Backers will receive a copy of the game and some free promo items for a single pledge level.
Themed around the pulp adventures, tall tales, and local legends of the mid-20th Century, Tales To Amaze allows players to work together to defeat one of two villains: Mothman and the Martian Invader. Each villain has a unique battlefield with unique objectives. If the villain completes their objective (or defeats the heroes), the players lose. Kickstarter backers will receive free alien and doom figures to replace the objective tokens that come with the game. Different minions, including Jersey Devil, Ant Queen, Loveland Frog, The Blob, Tarantula, and Skunk Ape, provide assistance to the villains. All of them use special action cards and a simple targeting scheme to control their movement and attacks.
The set can be played with 1-4 players and includes four new heroes. For example, Nikola Tesla discharges his electrified coils to power up his effects. Annie Christmas gets stronger when she’s fighting from behind. The Golden Bat, the world’s first superhero, has a variety of powerful effects. Finally, Dr.Jill Trent, Science Sleuth, calls on a collection of gizmos. Kickstarter backers will receive a free foil promo card for each of the four heroes.
Restoration Games owner, Justin D. Jacobson, stated that the cooperative play option offers an entry point for those who prefer less aggressive play or for families with younger players. He also noted that the versatility of the set allows players to use the included heroes and battlefields to play competitively Unmatched or use any existing Unmatched heroes in the cooperative game. Furthermore, he said that Unmatched allows for unique and imaginative combinations of characters in gameplay, such as Bigfoot and Achilles teaming up to take down some aliens.
The Kickstarter fulfillment and retail release for Unmatched Adventures: Tales To Amaze is scheduled for July of this year.
