Welcome to Crossover Collusion, a series where we talk about the crossover games featured in the upcoming Millennium Blades Collusion Kickstarter. We’ll take a look at why we love these games, and how they’ve inspired the cards in their respective Millennium Blades sets!

The Game

Doomtown Reloaded is a modern remake of AEG’s classic collectible card game, as a living-style card game. The new incarnation features great art, interesting factions, and a ton of Weird West theme. As a fan of the genre, I was excited when Pinnacle Entertainment, who are now managing the property, asked me to create some Millennium Blades Promos for Doomtown! Those promos were available in the Doomtown Reloaded project, and now we’re making them available to you here!

 

Why We Love It

What I really like about Doomtown is how it takes conventional CCG and LCG mechanics and flips them on their head. Players fight over locations, and controlling locations while eliminating your rival’s outfit is the main way to win. Combat resolution is with poker hands. While you can rig your deck to consistently throw high hands if you run duplicates in your deck, that’s called “cheating” and your opponents can punish it. Like with deck construction a lot of the things that other card games have to enforce artificially, Doomtown enforces naturally with its rules set.

 

Where to Get It

You can get Doomtown Reloaded at Pinnacle Entertainment’s own website, found here:

 

Translating it to Millennium Blades

The cards in Doomtown feature a keyword called “Holdup” which allows you to rob another player’s RP, or take out one of their singles (their choice). This is based loosely on the call-out mechanic in the original Doomtown. Target high-value cards that your opponent can’t afford to lose in order to make off with their Rank Points!
