Welcome to the Arena!
Heavy Gear Arena is a change from the interstellar warfare of Heavy Gear Blitz to focus on closer, more frantic arena dueling events. Instead of advancing squads of mecha across the battlefield, take a closer role and step into the cockpit of a three meter tall Heavy Gear customized with flashy duelist weapons and wild paint jobs.
Heavy Gear Arena includes the basic game rules as well as rules to customize Gears and pilots.
There's more to Heavy Gear Arena than just the arena combats: There is an in-depth campaign system to allow you and your friends to play through an entire dueling season as managers, trying to keep your Gear pilots and their machines ready to take on any opponents. In the campaign rules, players select a Manager archetype and build their character like an RPG.
The Heavy Gear Arena rulebook, which is incldued int he starter set or can be purchased individually, includes over 40 Gears ranging from work Gears like the Valence and Stone Mason up to the massive Cataphract.
