Combiners Take Shape in “Rise of the Combiners” for Transformers Trading Card Game

Transformers Trading Card Game: Rise of the Combiners

This March a new set for Transformers Trading Card Game hits shelves and it’s bringing with it super-sized Transformers in the shape of Combiners! Five cards will combine to create one giant robot. Predaking is just one of the six combiners that will be part of “Rise of the Combiners” set.

A new mechanic in the expansion has players collect the five Transformers that make up the torso, arms, and legs, and then form them together. You’ll need special cards called “Enigma” and players will need all five of the combiners in bot form in their battlefield or KO area. You then activate the enigma card bringing the Transformers together.

In the example released, the Decepticon Predaking, you’d need Torox, Divebomb, Headstrong, Razerclaw, and Rampage in play. Play their Enigma card you you can form Predaking! You can see the character has lots of health, a solid attack rating, and a room for five upgrades but a big robot also equals big target so the defense isn’t all that great.

But, it’s not just combiners!

Dungeon Mayhem is a new action-packed Dungeons & Dragons card game

Dungeon Mayhem is a new action-packed Dungeons & Dragons card game, where you win by being the last adventurer standing! Play as one of four brave, quirky characters—Barbarian, Paladin, Rogue, or Wizard—battling it out in a dungeon full of treasure.

For ages 8+, the game is an easy-to-learn card game pitting the wits and brawn of a party of adventurers against each other. 2 to 4 players choose one of four decks modeled after characters in Dungeons & Dragons and sling spells, daggers and, well, MAYHEM at each other until there’s only one left to claim the treasure.

Everything you need to play Dungeon Mayhem comes in a small package, but it certainly packs a big punch. Designed by Jordan Comar and Roscoe Wetlaufer to bring players into the D&D multiverse, Dungeon Mayhem can be a quick palette cleanser in between marathon gaming sessions or a make for a full night of gaming with several escalating rematches. Novice players can learn how to play in under five minutes while a game of Dungeon Mayhem is over in less time than it takes to skin a displacer beast – under 15 minutes.

Dungeon Mayhem is available now and retails for $15. The illustrations created by Kyle Ferrin in the four decks of cards represent Sutha the Skullcrusher (barbarian), Azzan the Mystic (wizard), Lia the Radiant (paladin), and Oriax the Clever (rogue). Pick one of these characters and play their mighty power cards such as Azzan’s Vampiric Touch to swap hit points with an opponent or Sutha’s Whirling Axes to heal yourself while dealing crushing damage to the rest of the party.

Keep your friends close! Not only so they can help take out the paladin but because it makes pickpocketing SO much easier. That’s what Dungeon Mayhem is all about!
