Saints Row comes to the table in Agents of Mayhem: Pride of Babylon

February 5, 2018 - 6:38am
Agents of Mayhem, the latest game in the Saints Row series, was released in 2017 on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. It continued the franchise's trademarks of high-octane first-person action, wild story missions, and absurdist humor. Now in the midst of the first quarter of 2018 the series is making it's first leap into the board game scene bringing all of those qualities to the tabletop world. Agents of Mayhem: Pride of Babylon is on Kickstarter now and brings the game to life with a 3D board. As described on the campaign page:    

 "Agents of Mayhem - Pride of Babylon is a team vs. team skirmish boardgame for 2 to 4 players. The game is played on a modular 3D board that is fully destructible. You and your opponents will play through a radiant story where every choice you make will have effects that ripple throughout the campaign."

However, I'm pleasantly surprised by what I see as it does appear to be a thoughtfully made skirmish game with excellent looking miniatures and a tempting campaign structure, and with it being (as of writing this) over 300% funded it appears the public agrees with me! The 3D terrain really works as an attention-getter, and it seems like they'll be getting the best use in this game than any of the few other games to have such a feature.
