I just returned home from watching Pacific Rim -- a great example of how to make a summer popcorn movie, btw (Mr. Bay, take notes) -- and couldn't help but think of this game. They need to make a tie-in expansion for this and release some Jaeger, too
I had this idea of a deck of cards representing the humans fighting back - Jaeger Attack (!). Might need to revise some of the powers once I've watched the movie.
I'll take a look at that. It looks like there's good room for some fan-made rules if there's no official tie-in. I have the game on order but haven't played it so I'm not sure if there are similar powers from the Kaiju.
I guess you could take the KoT framework, add Jaegers as well as Kaiju, make the effect cards two-faced (one side a power-up for the monsters, one side a power-up for the humans, same point cost for both), change damage rules so Jaegers only deal points to Kaiju and vice versa...
I'm pulling for a Pacific Rift (that's legally distinct from Pacific Rim, right?) expansion that introduces a human in a robot suit and allows for team play with one team defending tokyo bay and the other defending tokyo city.
