Colossal Arena is a betting game with cards (creatures) that have special powers that influence gameplay. This works very well, since there are enough powers to keep it interesting and not so many that it feels chaotic. There is a lot of room for good tactical play, and no two games will feel alike due to the very varied powers.
Colossal Arena has a very cool theme. The mechanic of betting on monsters/gladiators and trying to keep them alive so that your bet pays off is fun and intense (especially when your monster gets killed late in the game!). Fantasy Flight small box games are usually a safe bet and this is no exception. Supports up to 5 players. Enjoy!
Slay some mythological beasts in this well-designed card game. Skillful cardplay, and proper use of your sponsored beasts' powers, are the keys to victory. If you like cutthroat action with a fantasy theme, you'll love Colossal Arena.
