In Lucha Wars, each player assumes the role of a Luchador, or wrestler. Using the Grapple dice, they try to knock out their opponent by reducing their life points to zero or manage to pin them to the mat for a “count of three.” Each wrestler has their own abilities and Combo Attacks that they can use and a Special Attack die unique to that wrestler. Lucha Wars offers a number of playing modes, including tag-team, weapon match, cage match, and a ladder match where the wrestlers try to be the first to reach the top of the ladder.
Lucha Wars is an updated version of 2016’s Luchador! Mexican Wrestling Dice (see “Mexican Wrestling and Kaiju Action in March”).
