Core Game Components

In Metal Dawn, players move around Washington D.C. protecting the hot zones from the oncoming robotic forces of Dominus, a Rogue Artificial Intelligence Defense Satellite that has become self-aware and has decided to destroy humanity.  While fending off the countless cyborgs, drones, and exterminators, players must collect intel to use in hacking Dominus eventually getting it to land on Earth making it vulnerable to direct attack. In order to win the game and save all of humankind, players must destroy Dominus in his transformed state before the “Metal Dawn Track” exceeds 10 and Metal Dawn triggers!

Metal Dawn Board

Players control 2 Agents, each with their own unique special ability that’s different in every game. Each player is assigned control of a different Division of “The Agency”, with control over a big once per game power. This provides more replayability and that “Varied Player Power” experience that thematic and euro gamers love.

While moving around Washington D.C., your Agents must equip themselves with Weapons and Gear to defend the capital. Additionally, they must use the Zone’s abilities to further their goals. When the machines invade zones, overflowing them with their inhuman power, will the Agents be able to take them down using their elite skills and special abilities? Maybe you’ll find a Rocket Launcher you can use against the bots. Perhaps a jetpack will get you where you need to go just in the nick of time. You may use an intel at the right moment to eliminate a group of bots before they can overrun a zone, or perhaps save that intel to use in hacking Dominus to eventually have it transform into Robot Dominus!
