Grab a Mech and get to fighting with the Cryptozoic Hawken Real-Time Card Game! Your deck of cards contains primary and secondary weapons systems, thrusters, special abilities and various other high-tech instruments of war. Draw cards and place them onto the table as fast as you can in this Hawken card game, but be careful or you might overheat! If you don't wish to play a card, place it face down and it acts as cover for the round, absorbing a bit of damage from your opponent. The action is in real-time, but a game round ends when a player snags the FIRE! button from the center of the table. The speed of the Mechs are calculated, which determines the engagement range in this 2-player card game. Then weapons are fired and internal heat is generated. Quick reflexes are helpful, but a quick mind will win every time in the Cryptozoic Hawken Real-Time Card Game! As you play cards, keep an eye on what your opponent is playing.
