Giant Robot Hellboy offers a totally new experience for solo play in Hellboy: The Board Game. This massive, stompy robot doesn’t need the help of agents. Instead, you must divide your action cubes between different System Cards. Make sure you plan ahead because you don’t want to destroy everything and end up swinging into thin air! Or end up spending too much time defending when there are no enemies.
For each Giant Robot Hellboy sold, 10% of the proceeds will be donated to World Central Kitchen–the same charity Mike Mignola has been raising money for with his charity auctions during the COVID-19 outbreak. World Central Kitchen has served more than 10 million meals to students, families in need, seniors, and frontline healthcare heroes in North America and Spain during the pandemic.
Ok, so that is the official description (from the Mantic website) - but how about the actual model? These have been shipping out, so of course I picked one up.
I haven't yet tried the solo rules to use him. Since he is the ONLY agent used when using him, my initial read of the rules make me wonder if he will be tough enough to make it through (since each system only has three spots for damage), but I'll have to actually play him to find out.
Because it is all fun and games . . .
