Designed by Matthew Dunstan (Elysium / Relic Runners / Costa Rica / Empire Engine), it is a quick exercise in astute tactical thinking. Every choice is a tough one, as passing the chance to draft a great card is an opportunity for your opponents.
The theme evokes a gritty underground fighting league in a society in crisis. The illustrations by Anthony Cournoyer (Rattle, Battle, Grab the Loot / Hoyuk / Aether Captains / Raid & Trade / Crisis / Long Live The Queen) were made to match the growing world of Crisis and its mashup of diesel engines with leaking oil and a erstwhile glorious society in decline.
Diesel Demolition Derby: Arenas is the first expansion for Diesel Demolition Derby.
Arenas are large cards with 15 more unique illustrations that represent venues constructed or set aside for this dangerous league. In some cases they are made to challenge the combatants, and in some others they are made to contain them. Every one throws a wrench into the proverbial machine and are recommended for those who have dabbled in the ‘Derby once or twice before.
