Mega Man: The Board Game, made and licensed by Jasco Games, brings all the excitement and fun found in the classic video game series to the tabletop.
Made for the 25th anniversary of the character, Mega Man: The Board Game is a 2-6 player board game in which players control both their character and Dr. Wily's forces, ideally to impede the progress of other players. After determining who goes first, players choose the Robot Master's stage on which they wish to begin the game. On your turn, flip over a challenge card to reveal your first challenge. You pick the dice you wish to use to pass the challenge, then play cards from your hand and use abilities from your character to blast, jump or run through the challenge. Your opponents may play cards from the Dr. Wily side of their hand to make your challenge more difficult, possibly doing damage or taking lives from you along the way. If you pass the challenge, you move forward on the stage a number of spaces determined by the challenge you defeated.
Once all spaces have been cleared and you are face-to-face with the Robot Master, you enter the "Boss Battle". You and your opponents will now take turns battling each other until only one robot remains standing. If you are the winner, you take the Robot Master's powers from the character card, adding it under your own character card. If you were the first player to defeat this Robot Master, you also obtain its Trophy, which allows you to set a die to any face you wish in a future Challenge or Boss Battle.
Play continues around the board until you have defeated enoughof the Robot Masters to enter Dr. Wily's castle and face the final boss. The first player to defeat Dr. Wily wins the game.
