The Ministry of Discord, an international alliance of archvillains, has an opening for a new member. Each player in ROBOT RISE! is a mad scientist hoping to earn that coveted seat (and win the game) by eliminating all the other players.
The 108-card deck contains dozens of unique cards, including:
- Secret Lairs: Protect these from being destroyed by your opponents
- Giant Robot Parts: Assemble a giant robot to attack opponents or defend against attacks
- Raid, Freeze Ray, and Mind Control are nuisance attacks that reduce your opponents' effectiveness
- Defense Cards: The best offense is a good defense...sometimes.
- Spy Attack!
- And many others...
Need part of a Giant Robot to carry out an attack? Call for a temporary alliance with one of your opponents. After all, the enemy of your enemy...can sometimes be useful.
Gameplay consists of playing a card (if you can), following through on the implications of that card, and then ending your turn by drawing a card. The game ends when there is just one player with secret lairs remaining.
The Ministry of Discord, a secret villainous cabal, has recently lost one of their members and there is an opening. You and your opponents are mad scientists...
