(July 2010) Monsterpocalypse is a kaiju-themed collectible miniatures game which is published by Privateer Press. Released series include Rise, I Chomp NY, All Your Base, and the current series Monsterpocalypse Now.[1] A Voltron-themed Set Featuring Voltron, Lo-Tron and Voltron themed Unit was released in 2010 as a Standalone set.[2] Contents 1 Gameplay 2 Factions 3 Game Maps 4 Game Aids 5 Monsterpocalypse Conventions 6 Comic 7 Film 8 References 9 External links // Gameplay The game is played on one of a variety of game maps, which resemble city maps. Structures (such as office buildings and oil refineries) are placed on it to build a cityscape. Monsters and other units (represented by miniatures) battle to the death while destroying the structures. The monster is represented by two forms: an Alpha and a Hyper form. The goal of the game is to destroy both forms of the enemy monster. This is done by brawling, blasting, or making devastating power attacks against the enemy monster. Units can attack a monster as well, but they typically need to work together in order to deal damage. However, the most damage comes from using the monster exclusive power attacks that deal damage by, for example, sending the opposing monster crashing into one or more buildings on the map. The basic game is played with one monster (its alpha and hyper form) against one other monster. The basic rules also allow for double monster battles. The I Chomp NY Strategy Guide details other possible battle formats. Gameplay focuses on three parts: Tactics - The spawning, moving, and engaging of enemy units and monsters with your own. Action dice economy - Using the action dice pool efficiently by using an effective combination of actions, attacks, and movements. Power dice economy - Generating and storing enough power to pull off power or other attacks by a monster. Factions Block 1: Rise, I Chomp NY, All Your Base G.U.A.R.D.

Game Maps Each map to play the game has the following parts: Dice wells for unit and monster dice pools, as well as ones for power dice and bonus dice. Placement points for buildings that are placed in the order of green then yellow. Placing different building in different places can give different strategies. After securing buildings, they unlock different powers and actions that the player can take. Monster starting points, which are squares to place monsters in at the start of the game. Each map also has: Power Zones - if captured, they potentially generate power dice for the player. Negative Zones - if captured, they make the opposing player lose power dice. Spawn Points - either red for the red player, blue for the blue player, or green for neutral spawns, which must be first captured to be used. Some maps also contain: Speed boost points - a square you don't count if you move on to it. Teleporter - a square that you can jump to any other teleporter. Ability Zones - grant units abilities, currently including chain attack, explosion, and demolition. The "Block War" and "Smashville" game maps are included with the Rise Starter Set. This is a list of the currently available maps: Block War Boardwalk Brawl Boulevard of Broken Dreams Crossroads Crunch Danger Lake Downtown Beat-Down Grapple in the Garden Highway to Hellvue Kill-Again's Island Killer Canals Mean Streets Ramming Speed Riverside Rampage Road to Ruin Smashville Waterfront Wreckage Wrecking Ball Game Aids There are three strategy guides available for the current series: Rise Strategy Guide, I Chomp NY Strategy Guide, and All Your Base Strategy Guide. The books have sections for each Faction: statistics for each monster and unit, tips for using your monster and units effectively, and how to effectively play double-monster battles. Both contain general strategy tips, tips for playing on the various maps, playing in organized play, dice probability tables, a puzzle to solve, a section on the buildings and their use, as well as a glossary of all the game abilities. The guides each come with one double-sided map. A map pack was also released with the Rise set, including 3 double-sided maps and the Government Building, which can only be obtained with the map pack. The most recent map pack for 'All Your Base' was released with one doubled sided map and one 'Privateer Press Building'. The All Your Base Strategy Guide hit store shelves a considerable amount of time after the set itself shipped out. According to Privateer Press's Monsterpocalypse page, the late release of the guide was due to "a hold up with the Department of Homeland Defense." Dice Official sets of dice are sold in accessory kits, which also come with plastic bases that affix to your buildings, monsters, and units in red and blue flavors. These help distinguish each player's figures on the battle map. These dice are the same as the official set that comes with each Rise starter set.
