Tec Spells

Each Tec has a default spell. In time, certain Tecs may have more than one spell. The spells are related to the personality of each Tec. You can play the game without using spells but you probably won’t win 😊. For experienced players, spells are vital in developing winning strategies, particularly when encounter more powerful Tecs.

There are two types of spells;

  • Offensive
  • Defensive

Defensive spells can only be cast on your own Tecs. They are used to heal or help a Tecs. Likewise, offensive (or attack) spell can only be used on opposing Tecs – hey why would you want to attack your own faction??

A spell is cast by dragging it onto an opposing Tec. Most spells can be cast from anywhere on the board – a big advantage for less powerful Tecs.  After you cast a spell, your turn end immediately ends.

The Mindframe Arena Game Board

When designing the 23-node board, we were looking for something that would firstly work with our Tecs (animated game characters) and our perspective backgrounds. We also wanted a board with a straightforward winning strategy – get to the other side. Though how you get there is another matter.

We were also looking for a board design that would offer a underlying complexity that would take time for dedicated players to learn. After playing for a while, you will see that the board design is inherently linked to the Tec’s movement patterns and spells.

Without the Tec spells, a game would become just a matter of brute force and attrition. With a Tec's primary and secondary spells, you need to use the board more strategically – protecting other Tecs and key nodes & pathways. We are also happy that the board facility players with different playing styles. You can choose a direct full on attack, or set up a defensive posture or use a Tec on Tec marking strategy.
