It's Jimmy here, with the print-to-play game board and rules for the Larvapocalypse (It's Motherfucking Larva Time) game that we have been talking about for a while. If you haven't heard about this, here's a quick 411:
-For the past six months, I have hidden IMFLT figures in Ironhaus Black Market bags... So this is not a new line rollout or anything. There is a good chance, if you have ordered Black Market bags in the last six months, that you already have these figures. Here's some pictures posted by Instagram users JeHu and Rubberhammer9, showing some of the figures that they have collected: (pictured to the right)
-The gameplay mechanics are pretty simple. All you need to play is a game board, two figures for each player and a single six-sided die. Each player will control one larva and one monster (any 1"-1.5" figure will do! You can use Gorewads, any random monster that you find in Black Market bags, or any random mini figure that fits that scale).
-Each game begins with a single die roll from each player, to determine who goes first. Highest roll wins. Players will choose one of the numbered designated spaces to place their larva and monster, to begin the game.
-Each turn begins with a player rolling the six-sided die, and dividing those movement points between their larva and monster as they see fit. Players can move forwards, backwards, and diagonally.
-Larva cannot attack, but the goal is to be the last larva standing, so the goal is to protect your larva while using your monster to attack and kill the other larva players.
-Monsters can attack larva or other monsters; in the event that a monster vs monster fight occurs, highest die roll wins. However, if a monster lands on a larva, the player controlling the larva will first roll the die to attempt to flee. If the larva player rolls a 4 or better, they get to roll again to escape! (This roll happens immediately, and can only be applied to the larva). If the larva plater rolls a 3 or less, they die and have to leave the game.
-In the event that a player's larva is still alive but their monster has been killed, the larva player can attempt to make their way to the center X tile. If the larva player reaches the X tile, they will immediately roll. If they roll a 6, they can respawn their monster to their designated/numbered starting space.
-Gameplay resumes until only one player's larva is left alive.
Hopefully, those instructions are clear enough! I think I covered everything! The print-to-play game board is below, feel free to dig in and let us know how it goes! You can comment here, or contact us at:
And by all means, ENJOY! The team here at Ironhaus wants to thank everybody for sticking with us over the years, and this was our way of trying to find a fun way to give back.
