How are the heavyweights progressing? Let me know if you need playtesters.
From a design aspect – how did you balance each fighter? Did you have a vague formula or apply values to combos and moves? I am asking because I am really into boxing and would like to make some boxers that fit in Cage Match. Some single discipline fighters would be cool to emulate the OG UFC (ninja vs Capoeira… etc.). Kicking around some ideas for WCW and WWE professional wrestlers. If you plan to do any of these let me know and I’ll back-off and leave it to the professionals.
Love the game, keep it up.
Hi James, thanks so much for your enthusiastic support of Cage Match! And for stopping by the blog.
As for the Heavy Weights, I’m working on it 😉 I have some ideas set up already. For right now, Cage Match has a long way to go to be successful enough for a second printing and an expansion, and we have another game, Fearsome Wilderness, coming soon, but we will get there.
To answer your question about damage values: If you think of it this way, you can spend 2 focus and have a head punch (Hook) do 7 head damage. So, your special move needs to be a bit better than that or it isn’t worth it. If it costs 2 focus, it should do more than 7 damage or have a dice bonus, otherwise your move is no better than your opponent’s Hook . It’s a little trickier with the ground moves, basically 2 focus lets you reduce the need to win 2 dice rolls to 1, or 2 focus should give you more than the typical +2 dice bonus. Make sense?
If you do create some fan fighters, please post them to BGG. I’ll reply to your post there as well but without the detail.
So submission attempts always require 2 winning dice rolls to gain submission? (except for special submissions )
Also is Nayeli Robles special #2 supposed to be limb lock submission or is that a misprint?
Hi Sal, thanks for your interest. I never actually caught that typo regarding Nayeli, thanks for pointing that out. It should say “Attempt Choke” instead of “Attempt Limb Lock”.
Thanks for the reply!
I am really loving this game and hope for some expansions in the future.
Love the game and look forward to more fighters. I would love to be a play tester.
Thanks so much Dave! We really benefit from positive feedback on Amazon and BGG.
“Love the game and look forward to more fighters. I would love to be a play tester.”
I second this comment.
Inspired by Unmatched: Bruce Lee, I made a “Bruce Lee” fighter and uploaded it to BGG last September.
Yeah I love it!
