Description Edit | History

Monsterpocalypse brings the kaiju (giant monster) genre to the tabletop in the form of an exciting and highly strategic war game.

Designed by Matt Wilson, the award winning creator of Warmachine and Hordes, Monsterpocalypse utilises the critically acclaimed abilities of Privateer Press as a leading miniatures manufacturer to enter a new category of product with a property that will appeal to a world-wide fan base of all ages.

The players take the role of different factions (dinosaurs, robots, aliens, monsters and so on) fighting with one large (Godzilla size) creature combined with a steady flow of smaller units to support it. The battlefield is a cityscape (poster map) with building models integral to the game's strategy and gameplay. The game uses dice pools of custom dice that are used for both attacking and taking actions, leading to an ebb and flow between monster and unit turns. The goal for both players is to eliminate the monster on the opposing side.

Monsterpocalypse launched as a CMG in Fall 2008 with the 'Rise' block which consisted of a base set ('Rise') and two expansion sets ('I Chomp NY' and 'All Your Base'), both of which were released in 2009. The second block was released in Fall 2009 with the base set ('Now') and an expansion set ('Big in Japan') in 2010. The last expansion for the 'Now' block has still not been released as of 2015.

Each set contains large-scale monsters, as well as smaller support units and interactive buildings. Figures were sold in semi-randomized starter packs and randomized booster packs, with limited figures available only through promotional events.

In 2010 Privateer Press released the Monsterpocalypse 2 Player Battle Box, a semi-randomised set which contained everything 2 players needed to dive right into the game, including two full factions and a complete set of buildings (all from Set 1 'Rise'). In 2011 they also released Monsterpocalypse Dangerous Monster Zone or Monsterpocalypse DMZ for short. These worked as expansion packs for the 2 Player Battle Box, each containing completely fixed, faction specific sets of Set 2 'I Chomp NY' and 3 'All Your Base' miniatures. By buying the DMZs for the factions you got in your initial battle box you would have 2 complete factions and a full set of buildings from the 'Rise' block, making Monsterpocalypse much more accessible for newer players in a more non-collectible format.

9 Faction breakdown w/ Pictures
I couldn't find a good pictorial breakdown of all the figures within each faction. So I created this to better see what I liked before getting into the game. It is scaled to fit the ipad screen. Enjoy

7 Playmats for Monsterpocalypse Now
This includes 6 playmates, 1 for each Now faction. Each player can have an individual playmat instead of using those on the map board. Helpful if you make custom maps and don't want to print out the border or just need more room.

29 Ability Reference Sheet by Faction (Updated for the "Big in Japan" expansion and the May 2010 official errata with fixes)
This is a series of reference sheets in one PDF that has all of the Monsterpocalypse abilities grouped by faction. The only shortcut I took was that I only put one icon for triggers (i.e. brawl/blast/power) and did it more-or-less arbitrarily as I put the first one I found. I also have put the abilities strictly alphabetically, not grouped by type.
