Design, build, and test a robot. Compete to win in this new card game based on a real life robotics competition!
Aerial Assault is based on the real-life robotics competition presented by FIRST. Every year, FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) develops an exciting new game. Teams only have six weeks to design, build, and test a robot to play the game. Aerial Assault is inspired by the 2014 competition. With Aerial Assault, you can now work through a four-month season in 30 minutes by building a robot, training your drivers, and competing against other teams in matches.
In the build phase, players select robot parts (cards) and build their robot. For driver training, players build their action deck and draft cards that represent special capabilities. Finally, the robots compete two on two (or three on three in the deluxe game) to drive, shoot, and block their way to victory.
