Unpub Preview: Mega Monster Attack!

One of our upcoming events is Protospiel-Milwaukee (and Mid-West Unpub.) This is not an event I will be able to attend, and it is being managed by James Mathes of Minion Games. Games coming to Protospiel-Milwaukee register through a different entity, and by doing so don’t get a page here on Unpub.net. This is our first time with this type of partnership and we’re testing these policies out. One way we can support the games and designers coming to this event is through these previews. So, today we continue our series of previews of games coming to Protospiel- Milwaukee.

Designer Thomas Baumbach has intrigued with the description of Mega Monster Attack, the game he is presenting at Protospiel- Milwaukee. I know that I don’t know every game out there, but to my knowledge and experience I have yet to come across a fighting/set collection game. This is really a most intriguing thought to me.

So, imagine the haste with which I’d like to get down to letting Thomas talk Mega Monster Attack…
