HELVETIA Cup is a simulation football games blending tactical skill, strategy and luck. It is set in a fantasy world, with each player acting as a coach in epic games and titanic championships. HELVETIA Cup has both a family and geek version.
Each team is composed of 9 players. Before each game, the coach chooses 1 goalkeeper, 4 players and 2 substitutes. Each player is defined by three groups of skills : defense, offense and endurance.
A round consists of two phases.
1. Moves: Each team moves all players. The first hexagon movement is free for each player, if he wants to move more, he need to spend boosts. If a player has no boost anymore then all its skills are divided by two.
2. Actions: if a player from the defensive team is in the same hexagon that the player with the ball, he can try to steal the ball, to tackle or to put pressure. If the attacking player has still the possession of the ball, he can make passes or shoot. Most of these actions require to throw a dice, if the result is smaller or equal to the relative skill the action is successful.
Even though the single matches already offer a good amount of excitement, cups and championships offer the ultimate challenge. Throughout these competitions, coaches will have to show their skill by managing not only tactic and strategy during matches, but also injury, yellow/red cards and team training.
The game comes with 18 high-quality painted figurines.
