In the near future, the mega-corporations of the military-industrial complex have invested trillions developing cybernetically enhanced clone soldiers for off-world exploration. Seeking to build robust teams for future missions — and more importantly, to land lucrative government contracts — they have created special training islands. On these islands, they are able to simulate all of the deadly conditions their soldiers may face on remote planets.
To fund these expensive programs and the military-grade innovations built into their test subjects, the arms manufacturers have teamed up with media moguls to create and promote broadcast competitions live from the island’s training grounds. Thus was born “RELOAD”, the biggest TV show on the planet, with the most charismatic and capable subjects competing in front of millions of avid viewers to win fame for themselves and fortunes for their creators.
In Reload, you get to engage in this battle-royale experience thanks to an innovative action dice system that offers fast-paced play and the freedom to explore the island while fighting for fame.

I must say this game had me very excited. I demoed it with the developers and it seemed great but when I received it I was disappointed in the mini quality and rulebook.
This thematically convincing Battle Royal game is one of my favorite area control games! Playing time is perfect for my taste. Some rules are complicated which needs a trigger warning during the teach! Combat is new (“new to me” therefor complicated) and uniquely interwoven with your action pool. After 2-3 rounds of “close combat” (which is more complicated than range combat) you get caught into this Battle Royal feeling of making tough decisions in the always changing and shrinking landscape. You are childishly thrilled getting loot (Toys!). Events are exciting. The amount of luck in combat is minimalistic but big enough to make combatting tense and exciting. Dying is not a big deal because of the fame track race and all the possibilities to get fame. Team play is really satisfying and meaningful. The game is more tactical challenging but there is the right amount of strategical decisions for my taste. Couldn’t wait to get all the other Kickstarter loot boxes to the table.
The game is good, but the rule book is a bit off - some mistake, some aspects are not clearly written. We depend on "house rules" in some parts
