League of Legends board game, Mechs Vs. Minions, pits Yordles against trash mobs

Mechs vs Minions

League of Legends developers Riot Games are releasing a spinoff for the popular strategy game, but you won’t find it installed on your PC. They’re launching a cooperative board game called Mechs Vs. Minions, which puts you and your friends in the shoes of some mech-riding Champions as they battle through mobs in a variety of missions.

Mechs Vs. Minions will take players through ten story-led missions, each taking between an hour and 90 minutes to complete. Players take the role of one of four heroes – Tristana, Corki, Heimerdinger, and Ziggs – as they take on waves of minions.

Development on the game began almost three years ago, with the entire thing developed internally under Riot associate producer Chris Cantrell, instead of outsourcing to an existing board game developer.

Mechs Vs. Minions will feature four painted mech figures, five game boards, 100 miniature minions, along with a bunch of dice, cards, acrylic shards, and a power source miniature.

Mechs Vs. Minions goes on sale October 13 on the Riot store, for $75.
