Game Play


Robotech® RPG Tactics™ is a battle game in which players build armies of multiple squadrons of mecha to fight it out in scenario driven, objective based game play. Depending on the faction, and their choice of mecha, a player’s army may include anywhere from 2 game pieces to as many as you desire! The rules are scalable from small skirmishes to mass combat with hundreds per side.


Robotech® RPG Tactics™ uses a dynamic turn system. Players trade off activating squadrons during each turn, ensuring that a player never has to sit and wait while his opponent moves and attacks with his entire army.  By using alternating activation of squadrons, the game’s action unfolds at a fast and furious pace, allowing large scale battles to be easily carried out in a single evening.


The wide variety of mecha in the boxed game bring to bear the myriad and awesome weapon systems from the Robotech universe to lay waste to your foes. Even the battlefield itself can alter over the course of the game, as buildings are leveled by destruction unleashed during the battle.


Each player receives a number of Command Points each turn based on the number of mecha they have on the field, and the quality of their officers. Command Points are spent throughout the turn on maneuvers such as boosted movement, devastating weapon salvos, breakneck dodging counterattacks, and potent special abilities.“
Robotech® RPG Tactics™ product description

Meine Position ist eindeutig. Die überhitzenden Mechs von Battletech bleiben besser versteckt in der Garage und verstauben weiter. Am Original angelehnte Robotech Mecha wirken aus dem Stand wesentlich attraktiver, allerdings gehört das Palladium Rollenspielsystem zu den behäbigen Anachronismen des Hobbys. Das Tabletop funktioniert glücklicherweise nach anderen Regeln.

Achtung nicht ganz jugendfrei: Viele sehen in dem Kickstarter ein wenig „GamerPorn“.  Die Miniaturen sehen jedenfalls ziemlich sexy aus, sofern man auf große Roboter Mecha steht.

PS: Verehrte und mitunter etwas planlose Battletech-Gemeinde, die Mecha von Robotech sehen nicht aus wie der eine oder andere eurer Mechs. Vielmehr dürfte in der Regel genau der umgekehrte Fall zutreffen …
