Legends of the Game is a tribute to the men and women not allowed the opportunity to play baseball in the Major Leagues. The game reflects, the hardships endured by Black and Latin players, who over came segregation to play the game they loved.
Mechs vs Minions is a fully cooperative tabletop game for 2-4 players. Using programmatic movement from a shared draft, teammates will grow in power as they face off against armies of marauding minions.
Is an Ultra-Mega-Powerful Flamespitter hot? Yes! Rumble has invited Heimerdinger, Tristana, Corki, and Ziggs to his soon-to-be-mega-prestigious school. Without giving away too much, things quickly go sideways, and the Yordles are forced to work together to fight off the minion menace. Each mission is unique—with different challenges and objectives—as you fight through the story-driven campaign.
There are ten missions in total, and each individual mission will take about 60-90 minutes.
You can find Mechs vs Minions exclusively on the Riot Games Merch Store starting on 10/13/16 11AM PDT.
Mechs vs Minions is $75 USD plus shipping and handling (depending on your country).
MvM is available in English, German and Simplified Chinese, with hopes to expand to more languages in the future!

Turns out manufacturing a board game has some unique challenges. We’ve spotted a couple of opportunities to add further clarification to the rules—these will be updated in future print runs. But in the meantime, if you have any gameplay questions, look below. Caution: there may be some minor spoilers…!
Minion Movement: Minions prioritize movement along the Blue/Green axis - preferring to always travel towards their objective unless that direction is blocked or unless the Blue/Green axis no longer brings them closer (and then they travel down the red/yellow axis). When two minions might try to enter the same space, start by moving the minions closest to the objective. In the case that two minions are equally close, the minion furthest along the Blue/Green axis goes first. In the rare event that they’re still tied, the first player chooses which minion to move first.
New Damage Cards: New Damage Cards aren’t introduced until the second mission. The rule to add new damage cards to the damage deck has been shifted to the second mission dossier to reflect this.
Escalation: When timing the draft, the Zhonya’s Minute Glass only applies to picking your cards. You may program or scrap cards at your leisure after time has run out. And since placement of cards technically occurs after the draft round is complete, in a two or three player game, you can decide the order in which you place your cards when you have drafted two.
Towing: If you have moves left after towing, you must use them. When mechs tow or are towed onto oil slicks, they slide as normal with the towed object following behind to rest in the oil. You can even tow with a Haywire Control damage card…!
Minion Assault: When Minions reach the center Map Tile, they are limited to moving only 1 space (even if you roll red and regardless of the escalations).
Rune Shields: Place a Rune Coin on each Rune on the Gear Tracker to keep track of which shields are up! Remove the coins as Rune Shields are disabled, and replace them when the Rune Shield is reactivated.

Boss Movement: The Boss stomps Minions flat if it moves onto them. Count these kills on the Minion Kill Tracker! Also, the Boss ignores Oil Slicks. And if the boss must move toward a certain player and two options are available, the first player gets to choose the route he takes—both directions are eligible as long as he’s moving closer.
Compass: In the setup, rotate the compass 90 degrees so that blue-green is “up-down” the long axis of the map.
Schematics: The “Tech Support” schematic has two different costs on the front and back of the card. The accurate cost is ‘7’.
Riot Games has an incredible amount of content primed to launch within the League of Legends universe over the next few years, with more announcements coming every day. From an upcoming animated series, to last year's Teamfight Tactics auto-battler, the series is expanding to multiple platforms, and now Riot has its eyes set on tabletop gaming.
Launching alongside an animated trailer that stands as one part advertisement and one part instructional, Riot announced a new League of Legends themed board game titled Tellstones: King's Gambit. The trailer also launched with a new website that now hosts the video and gives a first look at the case for the game and provides a little bit of information about how the board game will play.

According to the video, Tellstones will be a tile game all about two or more players building a row of tiles and focusing on memorization as the field grows larger and shifts throughout the round. From the way that the narrative of the reveal trailer explains it, the game will be more about playing the opponent rather than the game, making getting into the head of the other player the primary goal of players. Not that this is so different from the way players approach Riot's primary title, with top League of Legends champions and players focusing more on combating and countering opponents as opposed to the AI and base mechanics of the game.
Exactly what the game entails is fairly up in the air, especially considering the stylized nature of the trailer, which doesn't quite explain gameplay on a fundamental level. However, players looking for an RPG style board game that mimics the concepts of Riots other titles in a tabletop setting may have to wait to see how reception of Tellstones plays out. On the other hand, players looking for League of Legends' competitive edge in a tabletop format, this may have everything that players are looking for with the seemingly simple design.
Coming alongside the ambitious new content roll out that Riot has planned, both from within the League of Legends universe as well as with new IPs like Valorant, Tellstones looks to be a welcome addition to the companies collection. Whether or not this is a stepping stone of sorts moving forward towards a fully realized release bringing League of Legends champions such as Samira to tabletop similar to Dungeons and Dragons is still up in the air. Regardless, whatever the game being tied into the Runeterra lore means, Tellstones looks like it might still be an intriguing idea for a developer that normally works with flashier art styles than something as simple as this new game.
Tellstones: King's Gambit is currently in development by Riot Games.
