Ty was excited about this game when it was on Kickstarter because the art was done by Jamie Keddie, an artist on Minecraft: Console Editions. Unfortunately, the game did not reach its funding goal, and he was saddened. However, victory was around the corner, as IDW games decided to publish the game! After much anticipation, Ty challenged me to a game of Random Encounter.
Defeat thine enemy! Randomly.
Ty wins the head-to-head loot battle, and and wins 3-2 on overall battles to go up 4-1....and then whipped me in the next round and won 6-1.
All I need to say to this round is my Troll King lost to a chicken and a guy in his underwear.
This was a thrashing of epic proportions.
"The Troll King is what I deserve to put up."
"The Lord of the Toads is my favorite, it's overpowered and awesome."
"This game is well-named. It is very random. The strategy is how many cards to put in each army, do you make your armies a standard 2,2,2,2,1? Do you load up on a 3-army and have 3,2,2,1,1 set? It's light and the art is great."
"The green card makes the game super-interesting because you can build up the armies and have it switch on you. I love the art and the characters!"
