Unmatched pits players against each other in battle, with each player commanding a unique hero and custom deck of battle cards. Each set comes with a double-sided battlefield board. The first two sets to be released are Battle of Legends, Vol. 1 (including King Arthur, Alice, Medusa, and Sinbad) and Robin Hood vs Big Foot. Both are planned for debuts at Gen Con. Four-Pack Sets have an MSRP of $39.95. Two-Pack Sets have an MSRP of $24.95..
Restoration and Mondo Games plan to release several licensed versions of Unmatched within the master game system. A Bruce Lee solo pack and a Buffy the Vampire Slayer set are both planned for later this year.
The line will continue in 2020 with Cobble & Fog (Sherlock Holmes, The Invisible Man, Dracula, and Jekyll & Hyde).
“We set out to make a simple, fast-paced skirmish game that rewards you for repeat play,” said J.R. Honeycutt, the lead line developer. “Asymmetry is core to Unmatched. No two heroes, decks, or maps are the same. Heroes have special abilities that fit their mythos, and sidekicks that support them. Each game of Unmatched unfolds uniquely, so you'll learn something new every time you take your favorite hero to battle. You'll make important choices as you fight: Should you step back and regroup, or press the advantage and attack?”
