However, not too far in the near future, Jasco Games will be producing a board game for Megaman. You'll take control of your favorite hero, and battle Dr. Wily and his forces of evil robots!

Mega Man the Board Game is a 2-8 player “Side Scrolling” board game. Our team wanted to develop a game that has both the feeling of a single player Mega Man game and the excitement and interaction of a party game. After years of testing the game mechanics, we found a way to capture the experience of playing a Mega Man game while adding a new element unique to our board game: players will both control their character and, for the first time, control Dr. Wily’s forces as you impede the progress of other players.
Our belief is that all players should be having fun, even when it’s not their turn, which means no sitting around and waiting for other players to make a move. This methodology creates a more fun and strategic way to play Mega Man! Imagine yourselves not only focusing on blasting through the stage and getting the power ups, but also planning your next deal with an ally at the table to help bring down that pesky Mega Man player sitting to your left. You will learn that, while you are defeating Robot Masters, powering up and making your way to Dr. Wily’s Castle, you will have formed and broken many alliances, and may have even stopped your former ally from clearing the spikes along the way.
So can you handle this kind of betrayal, strategizing and cunning? If you’re up for the challenge, and ready to have some fun, then get ready to challenge your friends and experience a Mega Man adventure unlike any you’ve played before.
Every player at the table will have a character that they have chosen to start the game. After determining who will go first, players will choose the Robot Master’s stage that they wish to start the game on. When it is your turn, you will flip over the challenge token that is laying down on the first hex of your stage, revealing your challenges. You will choose a challenge from the token, and play cards from your hand and abilities from your character to blast, jump or run your way through the challenge. Your opponents around the table will also be playing cards from the Dr. Wily side of their hand to make your challenge more difficult, and possibly do damage or take lives from you along the way. If you beat the challenge you will get to move forward on the stage a number of spaces determined by the challenge you defeated.
Once all spaces are cleared and you are face to face with the Robot Master, you will enter into what is called the “Boss Battle.” During this time you and your opponents will take turns battling each other until there is only one Robot Standing. If you are the victor, you take the Robot Masters powers from their character card, stacking it under your own character card. If you were the first player to defeat this Robot Master, you also gain their Trophy, which allows you to impede players by discarding it for a special ability.
Play will continue around the board until you have defeated enough Robot Masters to enter Dr. Wily’s Castle and face the final Boss. The first player to defeat Dr. Wily wins the game.
