pReview: Ultra Coins!

What's going on everyone!

I've got a sample for a new game that's CURRENTLY ON KICKSTARTER called ULTRA COINS. The game is a different take on battling in my opinion and seems like a pretty promising one as well. Sit back, grab a cup of tea and check out ULTRA COINS!

As always, here's an excerpt from the rulebook:

"The coins appeared in random places. No one knew where they came from or how they worked. An owner of a coin could summon an army of legendary soldiers or creatures. The coins had great power so governments, corporations, and individuals all battled for their possession. As time went on it became apparent that the coins were left here as part of a greater game, one which was being played by others…"

Ultra Coins is a collectible coin game for 2 - 8 players with beautifully designed 2 inch coins that players use to do battle. There are different types of coins such as Spell Casters, Soldiers, Leaders and more.

To start a game, players determine how many of each type of coin they will use and build their army from among those available. Once you have your army you're ready to do some battle!

To do battle, Players chose which coins they will be using for their attack and spin the coin up to 3 times each. To stop a coin and determine how much you hit/blocked for you use your index finger and firmly place it on the lower right side of the coin. The first full number just left of your finger is your attack number. Defense is done in the same way while you try to build up a higher number than your attacker.

Now, as far as a full game goes I can not report because I thankfully got a sample of the coins. Does that mean that my opinion isn't valid? No! I've tried out the concept with the coins provided and I'm glad to say I can see how this will work and it's not only wonderful but EASY to learn!

There are some other bits to the rules that include special abilities for the various coins. After checking out some of the abilities, they're awesome!

Here's an exclusive preview pic of the new design which has the abilities ON the coin!

"So, The game is sound, what about the coins?"
The coins are AMAZING in quality AND art. They have a nice weight to them which shows their value in production, they're well balanced, they're custom designed with the awesome logo on the back and the art... The art is just BEAUTIFUL!

On to my opinion:

Game Art: Like I said, Beautiful! From the design of the coins to the pictures of the armies and various other characters, You'll love it for that alone but not be limited to ONLY that.

Game play: Seems like a very smooth and easy to learn game. It's not complex but at the same time offers up some unique opportunities and strategies that may be involved.

Game Quality: Again, Top Notch Quality. I honestly did not expect it to be so good. I'll be honest, I didn't know WHAT to expect here but it is amazing!

So overall, even if this game isn't up your alley, you can still have some beautiful coins to collect. Would I buy this? Definitely! Would I play this? Definitely, I can see where it MIGHT have a limited player base but once you put one of these beauties in someones hand, they'll immediately want to play!


As always, Thank you for reading and take care! :)
