New Review from The Chubby Meeple
'Underleague is a fun, strategic creature battling game – where the focus of the creature battles is not on the fight itself, but rather on the betting. This provides a unique twist to the genre of games filled with monsters fighting to the death. Underleague is going to draw comparisons to the granddaddy of creature-battling games, Magic: The Gathering. I don’t think this comparison is fair, however, because it is a VERY different game.
In Underleague, your creatures are never killed. They are simply committed (exhausted) and will “revive” to fight again in the next Combat Phase (unless you yourself choose to switch them out). Also, in other monster-fighting games, you always want your creatures to win. In Underleague, your creatures losing is not necessarily a bad thing – as long as you bet on your own creatures to lose. This adds a level of strategy not previously seen in other card games of this type. The more bets you win, the more cards you will be able to add to your hand for use in future rounds. I really enjoy this aspect of the game.'
