Will Skeletor and his Evil Warriors conquer Castle Grayskull? Will He-Man and his friends manage to stop them? Will Orko succeed in casting any spells? Answers to these and many other questions can be found by playing Masters of the Universe: Battleground!
Masters of the Universe: Battleground is a skirmish miniature game for two players, where forces of good and evil clash in epic combat. This glorious battle will shake the earth and change the fate of the entire Eternia!
Players equip their characters with the most excellent weapons, spells, and equipment; then, they create decks consisting of 20 amazing fate cards. Those cards will be used to activate characters on the battlefield during the game. It is entirely up to the players how many cards they will use on each of their characters. Do you want to use all your cards on the mighty He-Man? Go ahead! However, it may be challenging to win this battle alone.
Unlike many skirmish games, players don’t have to accept the outcome of the cruel dice. Masters of the Universe: Battleground provides many ways to control luck. Characters can spend mana to reroll even the most stubborn dice, perform a focus action to increase their chances, and use the environment to their advantage.
Gain victory points by knocking out the opponent’s characters, claiming objectives, and fulfilling secret side missions. Whoever gathers the most victory points at the end of round four is a winner!

We had lots of fun playing and painting. With two more possible factions and lots of future miniatures it has a lot of potential. I hope for another map in Snake Mountain theme in the future.

Not only are the minis amazing but the rules are equally well done. The game has a strong "playset" feeling - like playing with the action figures but with a great set of modern tactical rules. This is the game my now grown-up inner kid has been waiting for since the 80ties! There are some very minor nitpicks (...the box is flimsy and it would be nice if the expansions would include cards for two players...) but overall this is the must-have boardgame for any He-Man and MotU fan. Respect to Archon and especially the game designer - it is clear he invested a lot of soul in this.
