The five minions we’ve shown off so far are just the tip of the iceburg. Two more will be added during Early Access for 7 total, giving you 21 different minion combinations for your teams on launch day! One of those Early Access minions is the sniper.
Our Outwitters players have probably been expecting a sniper to show up in Hex Gambit eventually, but can you believe he has two eyes?! You’ll find he plays a bit differently in Hex Gambit. Rather than a set range for his attack, this sniper shoots infinitely along straight paths, so he can hit you from clear across the map if he gets a good angle. The shots do less damage (relatively) than in Outwitters, but they’re very effective at picking off runners. He can also fire special “tapping” rounds that will snipe a Victory Point off your enemy’s crystal pillar from afar.
Hex Gambit is coming to Kickstarter July 25th! It’s a fantastic opportunity to save some money and improve the final game at the same time. If you haven’t already, be sure to sign up for our mailing list to get email reminders when we hit big milestones, like the launch of our Kickstarter, Early Access/beta, and the official release.
