Welcome Vault Hunters!
Borderlands®: Mister Torgue’s Arena of Badassery™ is a cooperative multiplayer board game in which you and your friends face off against a horde of bandits, monsters, and villains controlled by the game. You are Vault Hunters who have stumbled into Torgue’s Tournament in a violent gladiator pit where Torgue will send psychos, skags, and anything else he can think of after you for the amusement of his audience… and the cash of his sponsors!
You can play this game as a series of scenarios that provide you with details on how to setup the arena game board, enemies spawning, special rules that are used during the game, and most importantly, how you can achieve victory. Scenarios can also link together to form campaigns, and when each is complete, you'll be able to visit the vending machine, mod your character, and enter the next scenario even more badass than than before! But never forget that Mr. Torgue is hellbent on sending you back to the Borderlands as moist and meaty skag-snacks!!!
The [RE]action™ System
This game is built on Monster Fight Club’s innovative [RE]action™ System. Vault Hunters’ actions are represented by colored dice: red [d6], yellow [d8], and green [d12]. The black [d10] is called the obstacle die and is used to generate target numbers when making unopposed rolls. While the purple [d4] is used as a randomizer for many special rules.
When performing an action, a player’s roll must equal or exceed a target number (typically an enemy’s defense) in order to be successful. To make the roll, the player chooses from their pool of available action dice, choosing whichever color they think has the best chance to succeed.
The player rolls the die and adds their relevant skill (melee, ranged, tech, agility, etc.) to the result, along with any relevant modifiers from the game (such as from equipment or skill improvements). The total is then compared to the target number to determine the outcome of the action.
Are you ready to fight for the title of Ultimate Badass?!?!
Get ready to play by watching the original Kickstarter Learn2Play video then reading the rulebook and reviewing scenarios.
You''ll be prepared to attack (and defend - HA!) in no time and can get into the pit as soon as your game arrives!
