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

Monolith Arena is the spiritual successor to Portal Games’s classic Neuroshima Hex. While most things remain the same for veterans of the series, the monoliths themselves add a new dimension of play to the familiar formula.

The original art of Neuroshima Hex was great, but Grzegorz and Jakub’s art for Monolith really brings the game to life.

Why We Love It

I always loved the original Neuroshima Hex, but the post apocalyptic theme wasn’t my favorite. I love the new fantasy style of Monolith Arema, as well as the clean art and interface of the tiles. Having a great big box and the nice plastic faction reference sheets is a huge plus as well. This is a game that looks great on your table, and plays even cleaner and clearer than the original.

 

Where to Get It

The best place to get Monolith Arena is from Portal’s new USA-based website, which can be found here:

 

Translating it to Millennium Blades

To encapsulate the spatial nature of Monolith Arena, we developed a positioning mechanic. You can rotate the Monolith Arena cards to point at different cards in your tableau, granting these cards protection, support, and different powers.
