The game looks good so far, so now the question for the day.

According to the BGG page, this is a reworking of the game "Weapons of Zombie Destruction". That game is competitive. I know that Tom Vassel indicated that he suggested making M&M co-op. That means that, at some point, this was competitive. Are their any plans for a competitive expansion for the game?

There are no plans for an expansion at this time. All of our focus is still on making sure we get MvM properly into your hands.


Just my two cents, but competitive wasn't very fun. When the team is sharing a draft, it mitigates the frustration around bad card draws. The puzzle is frustrating instead of silly. It felt very dependent on what cards you drew.

I love competitive games, but I just couldn't make it work. Looking forward to playing some home brews, though. See if any of you can solve what I couldn't.

There is an football variant: Mechball - A team based 2v2 Football varient for Mechs vs Minions that look promising.
A capture-the-flag variant could also be envision but to be fun those variants needs to put the minions into the mix.

In a 2 vs 2 team game, drafting from a shared pool should reduce this issue. The team with the minuteglass drafts 1 card, then the opposing team drafts 2, then the original teams drafts 1 more.

Both teams get 2 cards. The team with the minuteglass gets picks #1 and #4, an the other team gets back-to-back drafts of #2 and #3. The minuteglass would go to the other team next round.

We've seen several other boardgames successfully use this method of competitive drafting to mitigate the luck factor.
