MY FAVORITE GAME

This game is so awesome. It's quick, strategic, and a lot of fun. Can't wait for Devastation. Check this game out if you can! It is a masterpiece.

Plays include both War and Devastation games.

Totes backed this on Kickstarter. I WANT THIS GAME. That is all.

UPDATE: Just as good as I thought it would be, and then some. I LOVE THIS GAME. That is all.

The variety of characters (21 with the three Kickstarter characters), the ability to maneuver, 'arena' areas, Special Actions, multi-player options (including team play), make this game very intriguing.

The play makes it irresistible.

KS version.

BattleCON is one of my favorite 2 player games. The characters all feel incredibly different, and there is a great deal of variety in the matchups. This is one of the best asymmetric games I've played, with characters that play more differently than other similar games.

There is no randomness, and there is an interesting psychological aspect to the game, where you try to predict your opponent's move, and counter it. This is an incredibly deep game, and it takes a number of games to internalize your own options, much less your opponent's.

BattleCON has more value for money than Yomi, although I'm not sure how well it will hold up to high level play. There are more characters, more play modes, and more differences between characters. I'm doing the 100 play challenge with this game, so maybe I'll get a better sense of its potential for high level play as I get closer to finishing the challenge.

The only problem I have with the game so far is the difficulty in getting new players involved. There is a bit of a learning curve, which isn't so bad except that an experienced player will repeatedly counter the moves of an inexperienced player. This can be frustrating for new players. Letting them play with Cadenza is a must. Before the nerf to Luc Von Gott, he was a good choice as well.

-------------------------

upped rating

This game is currently my second favorite 2 player game. There is a lot of subtlety to a given matchup, and I'm having a ton of fun exploring the strategic landscape. The attack pair mechanic and cool down mechanic are brilliant, creating both an incredibly deep hand management aspect with no randomness, and a large array of options for each character without using many components.

Note: The 10 rating is for the remastered 2nd edition. The first edition I would rate a 9.

A great, no-luck two player duel game. The rules are extremely intuitive and there seems to be plenty of depth to be found. The huge amount of characters and options give this small box loads and loads of replayability. A very pleasant surprise and definitely recommended!

Initially I though the art and names of characters and moves were uninviting. I've since become used to the art when playing with a friend. The game is simple to teach, but anyone unaccustomed to fighting games in any medium will clutch their player aid to keep track of which phase they're in. Me and the wife found it enjoyable to just pick random pairs for our first match to understand the flow of the game. Definitely needs a regular opponent to get everything out of.

This is the game that I have been looking for my whole life. This is as close to an arcade style fighting game as you can come in board game form. It's a tactical game where luck isn't a factor combined with a focus on positional control and asymmetric characters. I can feel myself getting better with every play which comes down to the wire. Both players have been in every match to the last strike. I haven't even touched the half of the great stuff in this box, and I can't wait to.

Awesome design which successfully captures the actual feel of fighting game with minimal complexity.
Edited on 3/4/2012:
OK. This game is gorgeous. My second 10 since Puerto Rico which was published 10 years ago. That said enough.
I'm now so addicted to this game that I brought a few decks with me always so I could simulate the move and combos even during travel/ free time. Mind you that although I'm a video gamer, I'm never a competitive fighting gamer. Just need to find competitive players...

Wow ! blown away by the depth of this beauty. For me a truly great game needs to give you the player a way to deal with whatever is thrown at you and this intricate, intense behemoth of a battler does just that. I love fighting games. In fact I own every fighting game (computer) that's worth having and this card game not only captures the feel of the best of these it completely understands the genre. The variety of characters is downright amazing. Now I'm not talking just the designs, although they rock, I'm referring to the fighting styles. Each character is vastly different to use which makes it so exciting and it will take kill bill style dedication to become a master with each. Even the best computer fighting game could learn a lot from this. Love it.

Plus dozens and dozens of games on the ipad. I love how differently every character plays. Its the meta game that really makes this one work. Reading not only your opposing character, but your opponents behaviors as well really makes for an engaging experience. This is probably my favorite game ever.

One of my absolute favorite games. Perfect knowledge and positioning make this game the only simultaneous reveal I know of that isn't RPS. Characters play differently and a sacrifice this turn can lead to victory next turn(or 3 turns down the line)

One of my favorite 2-player games.
I can literally feel and act out what the characters are doing.
A beautiful dance of death.
