If you're a fan of tabletop games like Blood Bowl, you'll soon have something new to play: Takkure is bringing cyberpunk rugby to the tabletop in the near future and it's getting ready to launch its campaign on Kickstarter.

Created by Zenit Miniatures, Takkure is a 1v1 sports tabletop game. The sport you're playing is somewhat similar to rugby with one notable difference: the amped-up and angry hooligans on the field are enhanced with powerful cybernetics to make them all the more dangerous.

The Asian-themed Yamato Team and alien-esque Teriomorphs team will go head to head on your tabletop, fighting for possession over the ball. Their cybernetically-enhanced bodies make them much tougher than the average athlete and it's sure to show.

The game will be played out on a provided board, although you're going to need a hefty amount of table space. The creators note that the board roughly measures 26 3/4" (68cm) by 18 1/4" (46cm) — and that doesn't include the space you'll need to roll your dice and play cards.

Each Takkure team is made up of four unique characters, each with its own style and flair.

  • Tokens
