Twisted – A Steampunk Miniatures Game (Part One) – Rulebook Box Set

Posted on November 6th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

If you use the words ‘Steampunk’ and ‘Miniatures’ in your sales pitch then you’re going to get my attention…
…and with that in mind I pledged to Demented Games ‘Twisted – A Steampunk Miniatures Game’ Kickstarter. The pledge level I went for included the Twisted hard copy Rulebook Box Set and either three Starter Sets or two starter sets and some terrain pieces. Despite the terrain bits and pieces being very nice indeed I decided an extra starter set would be more to my liking.

Editors Note – You can get larger versions of any of the below pictures by simply clicking on them…

In this first article we’ll look at the Rulebook Box Set before moving onto two of those three starter sets and some of the Kickstarter exclusives. First lets have some background…
Twisted
Twisted is an immersive new tabletop skirmish game for 2 or more players, with a world-class range of 32mm miniatures representing your characters.

Set in an uniquely interesting steampunk universe, Twisted’s absorbing gameplay and linked story-driven missions create a real emotional connection between you and your characters on the tabletop. Every character has an original backstory and distinctive role within the Twisted universe: guiding them through our richly-developed environments and exciting encounters will have you on the edge of your seat and wanting more!

But beware the power of the Engine! The ever-present influence of the mysterious steampunk Engine pervades the world of Twisted. What makes playing Twisted excitingly unique is that the Engine itself brings a new and intriguing element to every encounter: the Eye of the Engine card deck and the unique ‘Favour of the Engine’ game mechanic give the Engine an active role in the actual gameplay.

Maintain the favour of the Engine to enjoy rich rewards, or tempt fate and risk it all!
Twisted – Rulebook Box Set
It should be of no surprise that a rulebook box set comes in a box…
The inside contains the rulebook, some card sets, cardboard tokens, dice and some ‘quick-start’ style play guides…more detailed pictures of these coming up…

Twisted – Tokens, Dice and Cards
The tokens are single sided but more than adequate for game-play purposes and the dice are a standard set ranging from a D4 through to a D20.
Amongst the accessories are the pair of handy play-guides I mentioned earlier…

Twisted – The Rulebook
The rulebook is excellent quality and has plenty of illustrations within as well as all the expected rules and faction backgrounds. Here is some background to whet your appetite followed by some sample pages from the rulebook itself…
The Engine is the hidden source of steampunk power permeating the world Twisted. But it is more than just a god-like machine: it has a selfish consciousness seeking to transform the world according to its own designs, and a jealous ego unwilling to share this power!

Rumours of the Engine’s influence are spreading throughout the world of Twisted, and competing factions have emerged seeking to discover the secret access points to the Engine’s power: the Nodes.

The first faction to stumble upon one of these Nodes is the Dickensians: their discovery of an Engine Node hidden deep beneath the darkest sewers of London triggers an explosion of raw steampunk power as the Engine – sensing danger – fights back by summoning the Servants of the Engine!

I think that’ll do as an introduction. In the next feature we’ll look at one of the two starter sets I acquired…Not sure which currently as I haven’t actually assembled them yet…
The Dickensians and The Servents of the Engine

See you in Part Two…..
Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
Should you ever choose to purchase something based on one of my features or reviews then it would be nice if you could let the company know where the inspiration came from…who knows…they might be grateful to the poor unappreciated blogger who sent you their way…if however I’ve put you off a product…well…you can keep that info to yourself…
