Thanks for checking out Mech Capture, my entry in the 2016 solitaire PnP contest.

Mech Capture is a 1 player Mech themed wargame played with 36 cards - no other components needed. So, it's a simple build and a very portable game.

The game can be played as a "standard" game, or as a campaign with specific goals spread over 3 consecutive games. Standard game takes 3-5 minutes to play. The campaign takes about 15 or 20 minutes.

Here is a link to the WIP thread if you want to learn more about the game:

I played 4 games last night, standard game (no campaign) difficulty easy.

It's a really quick game to build (4 pages + no components needed) and to play. And it was a lot of fun!

First the rules. Only 2 pages very well laid out with the quick reference on the right.


Now my thoughts. It's a quick game (great pace to it BTW) and well balanced.
There is some great player choice involved in this quick and portable game. I like the frustration when a 3 VP card is "covered" in the enemy base!

thumbsup the rules
thumbsup player choice > luck factor
thumbsup the way Federation Transport work (clever mechanic)
thumbsup quick to build and play
thumbsup no components needed so my AOS cubes can stay in their box

thumbsdown sometimes you could suffer from a bad draw, but with a playtime of 5 minutes it's not a problem

I can't wait to try a campaign, I really like the mechanics added.

Definitely a keeper!
