Mister Torgue’s Badassery Arena brings the chaos of Borderlands to the table

Borderlands arrives on the table. Mister Torgue’s Arena of Badassery recently launched its Kickstarter and it has already hit $ 700,000 of its original goal of $ 80.00.

From tabletop game developer Monster Fight Club, Mister Torgue’s Badassery Arena engages the Vault Hunters cooperatively in several different campaigns, each with different victory conditions and enemies to be blown into small pieces.

The node of Mister Torgue’s Badassery Arena is that of Monster Fight Club “[Re]Action System, ”which uses three color-coded dice to dictate a character’s actions. After choosing your four Vault Hunters and setting up the game board, Vault Hunters will begin before enemies have their turn. Each Vault Hunter has their own set of skills which can be improved over the course of the game by upgrading their skill trees.

And like in all Borderlands games, there are also tons of guns to find.

Like any good tabletop game, Mister Torgue’s Arena of Badassery comes with a ton of minifigures. The base game includes 45 minis: one for each Vault Hunter, and many more for enemies, including Skags, Goliaths, Psychos, Marauders, and Tinks. There are also over 80 double-sided hex tiles to create each campaign’s map, a rulebook and base campaign, skill trees for each Vault Hunter, loot tokens and a bag of loot, dice and over 400 playing cards.

The Skags at the Gates expansion adds 40 additional double-sided hex tiles, more game cards, the Big Game Hunt campaign and 15 additional mini Skag. Additionally, there are tons of expandable objectives that have already been unlocked such as Krieg, Claptrap the Fragtrap, Maya, Lilith, and Zero as playable Vault Hunters, along with plenty of other minis. Future expansion goals will unlock Brick, Flesh-Stick, McShooty, and more, and they seem pretty likely to happen given how quickly this Kickstarter is approaching a million dollars.


Shipping is international, but it will be $ 35- $ 40 for European and UK residents. The base game costs $ 85, while the Skags at the Gates expansion and all unlocked expandable objectives will cost you $ 135. Shipment is slated for November 2022, but Kickstarters aren’t exactly known to have precise estimates during the COVID era.
