Mech Capture

Manage your squad of Mechs to capture the most enemy Mechs.




>> Introduction <<
Our enemy is rich in resources, but weak-minded. Many of their Mechs are bigger, faster, and stronger than ours. But challenge their mercenary pilots and they give up quickly and leave their machines.

We control 3 of the 6 sectors around their base, and we’re moving in for the kill. As their Mechs retreat to defend their base, we will attempt to surround and capture them. Capture them if you can, destroy them if you must.

We are closer than we have ever been to a major victory against the Federation. It is all in your hands now. Don’t fail us.

>> Game Overview <<
Mech Capture is a solitaire card game using 36 cards - no dice, cubes, or other components needed.

As enemy and friendly units appear on the battlefield, take charge of friendly units and deploy them in pairs to surround enemy Mechs, or in triplets to surround enemy Mechs, Transports, or Long Range Guns at their base.

A limited number of friendly units may be placed in your Reserves for future deployment. Deploy these units to match the enemy’s displayed characteristic and number of pilots, to capture the Mech and gain its Victory Points. If you exceed their displayed characteristic, the Enemy unit is destroyed so that the Enemy (or you) cannot gain its Victory Points.

Mech Capture uses a unique combination of custodial capture and trick taking to make an exciting and challenging solo game.

Winning the Game
By game end have more Victory Points than the Enemy. Compare your victory points from captured units to all remaining enemy units at their base, three sectors, and Enemy draw pile (if any).

Mech Capture can be played as a single game (see "Standard Rules"), or as a campaign mode of 3 games (see "Campaign Rules").
