Here is our list of recommendations for starting players:Consider your strategy based on what your opponent has brought to the table - have they left you a potential weak spot you can exploit? Learn to evaluate your enemies and target the weakest cards first.
Building Mechs from the cards you have can be challenging to new players getting to grips with the rules and the game itself.
We have just released the 4th wave of Techniconica cards, so why not have a look at them below?.
Power Plants are important for any Mech, as they provide power for the various parts and without them, your Mech is completely useless!Plants themselves are typically heavy items (usually with a Weight of 2 or more) and they vary from Armour 3 to 6 (for the Trinity Power Plant) so have fairly average Armour across the board.

We've added new artwork to the Raglor District showing you the outside of the District itself to give you guys an idea of how the two towers of District Raglor look (at least from a distance).
We've created a brand new Mech Builder for you guys to use and enjoy.
