I haven't seen the rulebook, but it seems the mechs can take damage. Does this game have "player elimination"?

Is this game expected to sell out quickly? I guess I'm asking if demand will be high enough that if we purchase it and for some reason don't like it, that we can reasonably get most of our money back on the resale market, even if its been played one or two times.

Thanks.

- no player elimination, having damage just make you mech inefficient (note that there is way to mitigate damage over time)

- They will sell 15k copy on oct 13th then they will start taking pre-order for another batch of 15k due for December. If those also sell out, they will order more copies for another batch. Note that there is a limit of 1 game per sell (per account?). This means that you should not order this game thinking to turn a profit by selling it 3 times the price on ebay as they are suppose to meet the demands. But the production value is really high for this game so you should be expecting to sell it for a fair price if you don't like it.

There's no player elimination. Damage takes the form of a deck of cards that you draw from that essentially mess with the programming of your mech. Things like forcing a 90 degree right turn or swapping the cards you have in two programming slots. I've seen each new scenario adds to the damage deck, but I doubt any of the new damage cards would put you permanently out.

Confirming this - there is no player elimination at any stage of the game.

Ooh this is fun, let's pimp you out. Here's some more GG to get an appropriate microbadge.

Thanks for being so helpful to everyone here!

Oh guys, I really appreciate the sentiment, but this isn't necessary. I'm not really a 'pimped out' sorta guy. I guess I will use this to add a League Microbadge, and I truly appreciate the kindness, but this doesn't need to become a thing.

Thanks, though, Karsus.

Yay, the microbadge I made years ago hoping to get more people into LoL back in the day (and when I was working on an AoS/MOBA/LoL board game for fun).
