Description:

This is an adaptation of the classic Nintendo game Megaman. No knowledge of the game is necessary to play.

On your turn, you are the robot hero Mega Man (or his creator Dr. Light, or his brother Proto Man, or sister Roll...), fighting to beat the evil Dr. Wily.

You get there by picking one of eight stages, and budgeting dice (you get a certain number of rolls per turn) to overcome terrain challenges and robots (inspired by the original game). Once you pass a certain number of challenges, you make it to the stage's boss battle.

Beat enough stages, and you can move on to Wily's castle, defeat its unique challenges, and make your way to Wily himself.

On any given turn, all the other players are collectively taking the role of Dr. Wily, playing cards to hinder the current player. Each card has three different uses- helping you in a stage, helping you in boss battles, and hindering other players- you have to decide what to use and when.
