Mindframe Arena is a 2-playerturn basedboard game in each player controls a team of Tecs(x5), called a faction.A player moves their Tecs arounds the board, with the aim of getting one Tec on the opponent’s spawn point. The first to get a Tec on the opposing spawn point wins the game. It is a turn based game, with each player having a set amount of time for each turn.
On the board, the focus is to get to the other side – as it is the quickest route to victory
Each Tec has a common attack spell, which allow them to challenge other Tecs When challenged, both Tecs are taken to the challenge arena where they (auto) battle each other, based on their attack profiles.
Like many classic board games, there is both a simplicity and complexity to the game board. The simplicity comes from the goal of getting your Tec from their start point (grey) to the opponents (yellow). A game session involves a player:
- Selecting their set of 5 Tecs to play
- Moving their Tecs onto the board
- Casting attack or special spells
- Wining by capturing their opponents start point
Once a player captures the opponents spawn node, the game session is complete and they will progress further into the Mindframe's World. They will also be rewarded with gold and/or additional spells. This allows them to upgrade their faction.
A game can be won in 2 ways:
- Tec reaches the opponents spawn point (most common)
- All opponent’s Tecs are off the board or unavailable
The most common and quickest is to get one of your Tecs to the opponent’s spawn node. They can also win by using of challenges and special spells to remove and/or disabled all an opponent’s Tecs.
