Rise of the Combiners expands the Transformers Trading Card Game

January 20, 2019 - 5:57pm

The Transformers Trading Card Game is published by Wizards of the Coast and is designed for 2 players. Each player builds a team of Transformers, from the Autobot and Decepticon factions, made up of character cards who use Action and Upgrade cards which are Battle cards. There is currently 2 starter sets for the game, with the majority of the cards obtained by buying booster packs including at least 1 character in each of them. In the Transformers: Rise of the Combiners expansion, players field 5 specific Transformers who combine together into a single, larger character when the Combiner mechanism, triggered by the Enigma card being played, is triggered. In one of the examples, Torox, Divebomb, Headstrong, Razerclaw and Rampage are in play and they combine into the hulking, Predaking Transformer. In this mode, all damage from the separate Transformers are carried over into this larger form. The expansion adds 46 new character cards and 81 new Battle cards. The expansion is set to release in March of 2019.
