ARENA REX GAME DAY
Arena Rex is an innovative tabletop skirmish game. The experience has been built from the ground up to be tactically deep, yet streamlined and accessible. A low model count combined with easily digestible rules make Arena Rex easy to pick up and play. Alternating activations, opposed die rolls, and out-of-turn reactions keep you engaged throughout the game. A dynamic round structure offers new gameplay and tactical opportunities unique to Arena Rex. Damage trees offer new levels of control within a flexible combat resolution system.
You can get started playing Arena Rex with only 3 models per side. The same amount offered in a standard starter box. The more standard game size is 5 minis per player, a battle of this size usually takes about 45 minutes. You’ll need a measuring device and some D6. Arena Rex’s fatigue mechanic requires a token for each mini you field and every Arena Rex miniature is supplied with this token as well as our custom, doric inspired base, a 4×6 art card with background info, and a game rules reference card.
In Arena Rex, the game factions take the form of famous ludi that inhabit the world. These ludi serve as soft factions as Arena Rex has very open force construction rules. When constructing a gladiator cohort to fight in the arena you may take any mix of gladiators and beasts you desire. However, there are potent bonuses for keeping mostly within a single ludus.
Arena Rex is played on various board sizes, we recommend an arena that measures about 30″ in diameter. Building your dream arena is part of the fun; players should feel free to build whatever shape and size game board they like.
