Post CanCon Post

What a weekend! We’ve got a lot of work to do this week with website updates, planning for next months document releases, and hopefully geting the Collective of Arton preview card out to backers this evening.

We really appreciate everyone coming past to take a look, have a demo, or just say hi this weekend. We especially want to highlight the Patreon backers here too, who are one of the main income streams for the game. Whatever funds you are putting towards Dare Games Oz each month go towards developing that future content, and getting our models on the tables sooner.

February will see the release of the tournament and league guides, so hopefully that will give everyone more ways to play, but in the meantime remember that the match guide is available on the website, and get those dice rolling!

As always, for love of the game.

Rules free to download!

While we’re at CanCon this weekend we’re hoping to see a lot of familiar and new faces and show everyone the fun we’ve been having with Mecha Strike Arena.

To make things even easier, we’ve added the full rule document to the downloads page for everyone to access! It’s a nice, shiny, colourful PDF of the full rules, including an appendix on how to layout and read cards.

For anyone who catches us and dares to enter the arena, we’d also like to point out the keyword search page, where you can look up every keyword on every card (and a few that haven’t been used yet). During our recent tournament play we found it invaluable to be able to quickly grab our mobile phones, type in the keyword and hit enter, and grab the game text. It’s a great page to bookmark.

We hope to see you at CanCon, where we’re previewing some concept 3d prints of the MAT-AT that have been gorgeously painted, and introduce as many people as possible to the universe we have built.

Match Guide 1.0 live

After lots of playtesting, the MSA Match Guide 1.0 is live over on the downloads page. This is the core of what will be several organised play documents, giving players scenarios before we go live with event formats.


For now there are five scenarios to play, but moving forward we’ll be adding one roughly each month, depending on feedback from Patreon backers. Please consider backing us there for early access to new scenarios and other playtesting goodies.

Demo Rules

Quick reminder our demo rules are available on our downloads page!


The demo kit is a very basic tier 0 Mecha setup with short range weaponry, best played on a 2 foot by 1 foot board to about 150 points.
