RWBY: Combat Ready is a cooperative board game where 2-5 players join forces to take on fierce RWBY villains and slay monstrous Grimm! Players play as one of the four main heroines in the series: Ruby, Weiss, Blake, Yang – or their friend Penny! Each player has their own separate deck of cards representing their attacks, actions, and moves. Each character plays a little differently, using their own unique tactics and strategies.
Before each game of RWBY: Combat Ready, players choose a scenario to play from the scenario book. Each scenario will have them fighting one or more battles. You battle against a particular villain – Roman, Adam or Cinder. Each has a particular set of rules, which may include one or more objectives. No two battles are ever the same!
During a battle in RWBY: Combat Ready, players gain experience which they can use to upgrade their abilities and powers. Players can choose to play a string of scenarios, known as a campaign, improving their combat prowess after each victory. They’ll need to be at their best, because each successive scenario becomes more challenging. If they defeat all the villains in a campaign, their conquest is complete and the world of Remnant may know peace once more.
