You’re cordially invited to a mother-trucking tea party featuring your favourite badass, (Not so) Tiny Tina, and your favorite robotic overlord/master, CL4P TP! Grab your Felicia Sexopants and Mushy Snugglebites, because this is going to be fun!
At PAX East this weekend we saw a whole load of Borderlands-related things get revealed; remastered 4k GOTY all-the-loot editions, and of course the very exciting Borderlands 3! Alongside these very amazing announcements came a sneaky release of a brand new card game featuring everyone’s top 3 character, Tiny Tina… Well, I guess it’s just Tina now? Anyway, it pits you against your fellow Vault Hunters to build the coolest Claptrap the quickest. Easy, right?
Choose your champion Claptrap (contradicting statement, I know) and try to make it the coolest one the quickest while also fending off your fellow scavenging, and scheming competitors. You’ll have a choice between all the classic Claptraps, including Sheriff Claptrap and Wizard Claptrap from that intensely annoying fetch quest. I’m still getting over that one.
Anyway, you’ll have the dive into dumpsters, steal parts and build your robot while also making sure you defend against others doing the same. It kind of reminds me of Bears VS Babies if only for the building part of the game. Although, Tina doesn’t have a great track record with babies. So we’ll have to see about that part.
The game comes from XYZ Game Labs, and is available via the official site and Gearbox site for about $20. If you want to try your hand at getting it locally, perhaps send your local board games seller a message! A lot of the time they are more than willing to import games for the local market. Timeless Board Games is one such retailer.
