Monsters battling against other monsters.
That simple. No crazy backstory. No intrigue or subterfuge. Just monsters fighting against other monsters. Clean, crisp, and easy. That's what Monster Melee is, and it's also up on Kickstarter now.
In the game, players bet gold on their monsters. The monsters then fight, modifying their fighting skills by using Fix cards. The monster with more power wins the fight and the owner of said monster gets the gold. Get enough gold and you win the game. Simple, as it was designed to be.
The campaign's underway now and is right around 1/4 funded with still 24 days left to go.
