Designed by Scott Gower

In The Amega Weapon, players race to build the ultimate weapon. This is done by flying through space and collecting parts from various space stations. There are several hazards in the game like navigating asteroid fields, novae tiles, your opponents, and the dreaded Black Star.

You might find this appealing if you like semi-cooperative games, space themes, and if you don’t mind sitting around the table with friends anywhere from thirty minutes to four hours. Since the game’s release at Gen Con 2014, the designer has added a set of tournament rules based off the feedback of people who have played the game.

I was introduced to The Amega Weapon at Gen Con last year and I had fun playing the game. Since then I have played it about fourteen times. I have discovered that it can be repetitive, it’s always fun, and Scott truly cares about this game. We’ll cover all of those in more detail as we move through this review.

$64.99

 

It is said that the bones of the past should have been left alone, but these are desperate times and thus desperate measures were taken. The Ashmogh was resurrected from the ashes of an Urugal necropolis long buried under the desert sands, and now people wonder if it wasn’t buried with good reason. The reckless indiscrimination with which the Ashmogh destroys both friend and foe in its hunger for destruction leave many Urugal wondering if the old ways were not in fact better left resting in the dark.
