Tabletop System: Gunplatop Preview
Ihr wolltet schon immer mal Eure Gundam-Modelle auf den Spieltisch schicken?
Gunplatop will allow you to deploy the models you already have on the battlefield into an interesting strategic wargame.
You will be a Mobile Suit pilot fighting in the year 0079 of the Universal Century era.
1) Get from your showcase your favorite Mobile Suit model (scale 1/100 – 1/144 – 1/200, model kit / action figure …)
…and the stat card in question.
At the beginning of the game, check with a marker the weapons you want to keep equipped in the left and right hand of the Mobil Suit.
Depending on where you have your weapon equipped, you’ll have a different hit roll:
- 4+ for weapons EQuipped M (Mounted on frame), L (in Left hand), RC (Remote Controlled, like funnels…)
- 3+ for weapons EQuipped R (in Right hand)
- 2+ for weapons EQuipped with both hands (R+L)
2) Fill the score at your disposal, adding upgrade cards that you consider necessary (max. 2).
3) Associate the pilot: choose a pilot card from the available ones or create a personal one following the indications of the regulation:
4) Get the TOKENS needed for the Mobile Suit (in addition to the newtype-one, if the pilot belong to that class)
The game starts with a first planning phase (the so called instinct phase), where you will have to choose and position 2 tokens corresponding to the actions you want to perform in the round.
This mechanism reproduces the frenzy of the fight, when there is no time to analyze the situation after activating each other in the activation. Ideally, the pilot will have to „put his fingers“ on the buttons he wants to press. Once all players have placed the tokens, the initiative will be established and the models will alternate in the activation.
Depending on how the action evolves, you will decide to „push the button“ even during your opponent’s turn with dodges, counter-attacks, etc. … If you combine the tokens at your disposal other you can get more different actions:
Throught different game modes you will revive, personally, all the epic battles of your favourite series:
(recommended for first game sessions)
(recommended with multiple players)
(recommended for the most experienced: you’ll control 3+ mobile suit)
(recommended for stable group of gamers, the most attractive and strategical)
