MechWarrior, Dark Age Rules

MechWarrior, Dark Age Rules

In the 32nd century, war rages across the known universe. Battlefields shudder under the strides of 30-foot-tall BattleMechs, each bristling with enough lasers, autocannons and missiles to level a small city. In their wake pours an army of tanks, battle-armored troops and infantry squads that will hold the ground the 'Mechs so desperately conquer.

MechWarrior: Dark Age is a game you can play on any tabletop within minutes of opening the box. Each figure stands on a unique combat dial with all the information needed to play printed on it. There are no complicated charts, tables, or record keeping for MechWarrior. The rules are easy to learn, and allow for complex strategies.

Solaris VII

Solaris VII (2007)

MechWarrior Solaris VII gives you a different way to play with your MechWarrior miniatures. Solaris VII uses many but not all of the concepts and components common to MechWarrior: Age of Destruction; it even introduces some new mechanics and game play options.

Solaris VII is an exciting and fast-paced miniatures combat game set in a 32nd-century universe, where war is dominated by three-story-high humanoid vehicles called BattleMechs (or ’Mechs™). Using collectable MechWarrior: Age of Destruction miniatures on the planet of Solaris VII, you and your MechWarriors (’Mech pilots) compete against other players for fame and fortune.

When you and your friends get together for a Solaris VII match, you each customize a ’Mech from your own collection of ’Mechs. You can customize your Mechs hundreds of different ways, using pilots and gear.

You can play Solaris VII with as many people as you like, but the game plays best when there are two, three, or four players, each with his or her own ’Mech. You can also play with a team of ’Mechs, with two or more teammates allied on each team.
