Play Matt: Combat Arena Review
The black box of Combat Arena sucks me in like a starless vacuum, into a space where two techno-primitives duel with whip and sword. Inside there is a small board of hexes, some cards and counters, and a sprue of red plastic. Fumbling for instructions, knife and glue, I begin to build. Beneath my sticky fingers, a menagerie of anarchic shapes begin to assemble. Some kind of future knight, a cyborg drone, a tech priest and others, popping with wires and guns and detail.
