Description

The Fired Up board game (designed by Giorgos Eleftheriadis and Theofilos Koutroubis) is set in a futuristic environment

In the near future, entertainment will have changed. It will have evolved beyond traditional sports in stadiums and into a larger than life spectacle where digital warriors will compete against one another inside the cyberspace arena in bloodless conflict sports.

In the Fired Up board game the players are not the fighters! They are spectators with premium seats to the largest spectacle of all time. Their premium seats make it possible for them to influence the digital athletes in the Arena and bet on their champions in the fight.

Each round the players roll dice to determine how best to influence the warriors and will secretly bet on specific highlights they would like to see happening, thus having the best time ever! During the course of the game, each player roll their action dice which can be used to influence the fighters. After the action selection phase, the fighters are going to attack each other when the combat phase is going to be resolved.

In the end, the person who had the most fun will win this game of futuristic sport!

The game ends when at most one fighter is left in the arena!

    Fired up would receive 3.5 stars if I could do half stars!
    Fired Up is not what it looks like. Rather than being a skirmish arena game it is more like Camel Up crossed with Adrenaline. Players take the role of an over excited crowd trying to influence the fighters so they can win their bets!
    Each round you will roll your dice and assign some to influencing one of the fighters. You can encourage then, boo them with this having an impact on their performance. However a fighter will only be influenced so many times before they stop listening to the crowd. You can also tell them to aim their attacks at other fighters or jump the activation order.
    At various points you can also place bets about what will happen and in what order. For some it will be a little bit too dice heavy but you have more control over what happens in Camel Up for example. It’s a fun game that some people will absolutely love but perhaps isn’t for everyone!
