In this set, a new mechanic is introduced with the T. Rex. She is a LARGE fighter, which gives her unique rules concerning movement and attack range. Dr. Sattler has tricks of her own. She utilizes insight tokens, which do different things based on her card effects. The T. Rex may seem like an imposing and overwhelming foe compared to Dr. Sattler, but neither fighter is at a distinct disadvantage over the other. In fact, many of their cards are designed to counter each other, making for a well-balanced game.
Map: T. Rex Paddock
The T. Rex paddock is based on the T. Rex escape scene from Jurassic Park. There are a total of 26 spaces, which is the smallest amount on any Unmatched game board. The small amount of spaces help the board visually seem more spacious than other two player boards; that is, until the T. Rex enters the battlefield. The low number of spaces really adds a sense of urgency when battling against the T. Rex. She can only move one space per action, but it never feels like you are at a safe distance, which is good when considering pacing. The zones make sense and give ranged heroes plenty of spaces to attack from as well.
Underestimate these brilliant scientists at your peril. Study the quarry and gain insight against even the most ferocious foes. Your opponent never had control – that’s the illusion.
