Mechs vs Minions is a cooperative board game in which players control giant mechs and work together to complete missions by programming their movements and abilities. The game offers a lot of replayability due to the different missions, objectives, and varying difficulty levels. The components are of high quality, and the artwork is fantastic. One downside is that the game can take up a lot of table space, and the setup can be time-consuming. However, once players get into the game, it can be very immersive and enjoyable. Mechs vs Minions can be played solo or with up to four players.
