Enter The Arena
"The crowd roars as you avoid the swing of the blood-and-sweat tinged sword the gladiator across from you is wielding. You eye each other warily and steady your weapon. Noticing a well-hidden spike trap behind your opponent, a plan begins to take shape. You dash forward to catch the other gladiator off guard, and he stumbles backwards into the trap, just as you had planned. A wide smile breaks out on your face as the crowd cheers your name as you raise your arms in triumph. Suddenly, the voices fade to a faint drone, as you find yourself laying on the warm, sandy ground in the arena. Before your vision fades, you see another gladiator standing over you whom you didn't seem to notice until just now..."
About Enter The Arena:
Enter The Arena is a competitive strategy based card game for 2 to 4 players (or 5 - 8 players with the Battle Royal Package). The game is intended for audiences aged thirteen and older, and has a play time of 15-30 minutes. As in the real Gladiatorial arenas of old, fighting prowess alone is not all that is required for success. The love and adoration of the crowd is no less important if one seeks to triumph in the arena.
This game is played using Attack, Defense, Style, and special Prowess cards which are all used in their own unique way, and are the tools you will use to be victorious in the arena. Enter The Arena is played in a series of trumps that continue until only a single combatant remains standing, or until a gladiator gains the favor of the crowd. Every turn you can either go on the Attack or Defend yourself against incoming attacks. Properly gauging your opponents reactions and moves is an important part of the game. Each player is sent into the arena with the same "tools" to defeat the other gladiators. How and when you use them is up to each player as the game develops. Augmenting your attacks or defense with Style cards is another integral part of the gameplay. Gaining the favor of the crowd is another potential way to win the game rather than defeating the other gladiators.
Adding another level of strategy to gameplay are the Prowess Cards. These cards have various effects that can be used to increase your chances in the arena and/or hinder your opponents as you battle for victory.
Enter The Arena is designed to be fun, strategic, and fast-paced with the ability for anyone to seize the upper hand at a moments notice with a properly executed combo. Be careful though because leaving yourself defenseless will in turn leave you at the mercy of your foes.
