Tokens & Demo Kit 1.1

Afternoon all,

The downloads page has been updated with a token set and version 1.1 of the demo kit.

For now the tokens are presented in a plain black and white print friendly format similar to those already found in the demo kit. Speaking of the demo kit, we’ve taken an opportunity to swap in some tier 1 cards to give potential new players a bit better a taste of the full game.

Tournament & League rules live!

Our Orbit & Strike tournament and Rookie & Strike league rules are now live on the download page. Head over there to grab them, or just grab them at this link here.

Orbit & Strike Tournament Rules 1.0

Rookie & Strike League Rules 1.0

We hope you’ll find them great for anything form the most casual to the most competitive of events, and that any community will get a kick out of them!

Match Guide update

Hi all,

We’ve just posted version 1.1 of the match guide, establishing the “survival” scoring better, adding a maximum cap to the XXX– scores before the post match counts.

Oh, and a pretty spiffy scoresheet – print it double sided for maximum winnage. head over to the downloads page to get the new file.

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.

Tutorial videos

Good afternoon everyone.

The first of our two tutorial videos, Movement and Combat, have been posted to our Youtube channel.

Check them out!

Keyword searching!

Thanks to a nifty little plugin that took me far too long to find, we now have a Keyword Search page!

You can search every keyword currently live in the game, and some that aren’t currently on cards that might give you a hint of what’s to come. You can also search through every keyword.

Searching is going to make games on the fly a lot easier, I suggest bookmarking the page on your mobile.

Thanks for coming!
