We just got the production sample for Invid Invasion (the pre-order is still active and miniatures are still available at www.tinyurl.com/invidinvasion) and are signing off on it this week.
The sample was delayed due to the COVID-19 virus situation globally. The factory we work with is now back to work and we have moved the expected delivery date to Jun/July (from Apr/May). We apologize for the delay but we hope you understand.
Weary from the constant battle with the Robotech Masters, the United Earth Forces have fallen to the invasion of the insect-like alien Invid. Lt. Commander Scott Bernard leads a tight-knit team of freedom fighters toward the main base of the alien invaders located at Reflex Point. Their only hope for liberating the Earth is to defeat the Invid aliens and their Queen Regess before Admiral Hunter’s Expeditionary Force returns to raze the planet and end the threat to the galaxy.
Can you can you and the other freedom fighters defeat the Regess and save the Earth?
Object of the Game
Robotech: Invid Invasion is a Cooperative game where human heroes must work together to cleanse Reflex Point of the alien Invid Invaders and their Queen Regess before it’s too late.
During the first phase, players will deal out a grid of facedown Invid Cards. Each turn, players will move their hero(es) around the grid, choosing which Invid Cards to flip over to potentially expose enemies, ambushes, or valuable Allies. The heroes must clear a path from one side of the board to the other to reach Reflex Point before the end of six (6) turns.
Once the path to Reflex Point is cleared, the heroes begin the Regess phase. The Regess and her guards are dealt out, along with additional Invid warriors. Our heroes must defeat the powerful Regess within six turns. If they fail, the returning REF will end the Invid threat—and our unfortunate heroes—by bombarding the planet with the dreaded Neutron-S missiles.
To win, the heroes must clear the path to Reflex point and defeat the Regess at Reflex Point before the missiles fall, destroying all life on the planet.

ROBOTECH: CRISIS POINT
2 players 30-50 minutes Ages 8+
**Objective:** Players are trying to destroy their opponent’s forces while also successfully defending their own. Players take turns deploying units to the battlefield and then utilizing their combat units around the outside of the battlefield to defend their own forces and destroy those of their enemy. They will then use tokens they have earned and their hero and command cards to win the day. The player with the most combined points in defended and successfully destroyed units and strategic locations wins.
Following the annihilation of Earth, human survivors struggle to rebuild their once-great planet, only to be faced with a new threat. The Robotech Masters arrive to complete the mission that their Zentraedi armada began… to secure their empire by reclaiming the Protoculture matrix before it is located by the Invid. In their way stands the Army of the Southern Cross!
The exciting, stand-alone sequel to SolarFlare Games’ ROBOTECH: Force of Arms lets you take control of the epic conflict known as the Second Robotech War. One player takes the lead as the plotting, scheming, desperate Robotech Masters, while the other player commands the valiant and determined Army of the Southern Cross.
In this head-to-head card game, players are engaged in conflict for control of the Earth, each side pitting their varied infantry and mecha-based units against each other in an all-out war with only one victor. In addition to their mecha and weapons, players wield powerful command actions and amazing heroes to turn the tide of conflict and ensure victory.
ROBOTECH: Crisis Point is a two-player head-to-head card game. Strategy, tactics, area control, bluffing, and hand management all come into play in this dynamic and deep game of Alien vs Human in a battle of wits and courage.
Will you save humanity or utterly destroy it?
Force of Arms has a free “Grand Cannon Expansion” available for free from your retailer just ask them. The Grand Cannon expansion expands the way the game can be played and ads new cards to the Force of Arms game experience.
Thank you as always for all of your support and we look forward to bring you more fun. Dave
Great news! We had some of the hardest testers I know hammer on the #ROBOTECH: Crisis Point prototype and it went really well – deep tactics and strategy and good speed of play with great balance. Excited.
Hello to the SolarFlare Games family. I would like to see if any of you would like to help develop some flavor text for the QUEST cards for The Kids vs Quests game coming to #kickstarter in August – see the title and the art and feel free to suggest the quest’s “backstory” 🙂
*Note – any suggestion that SolarFlare Games chooses to use becomes the sole property of SolarFlare Games but we will make sure to list your name in the rule book as an “Adventurer” (the thank you section) as a reward/thank you.
Some very cool news for SolarFlare Games from this week.
We signed an agreement with “Movie Banking” a Shanghai TongYi Culture Communication Co., Ltd. company.
We will be working with them to translate #ROBOTECH:: Force of Arms into Chinese and then exclusively distribute that version in China. We are very excited about this partnership allowing our game to reach even more fans of our games and the ROBOTECH property.
Below is a modified version of the current box cover. This is just WIP – we will be working with Movie Banking to make a cover truly unique for the Chinese version – in the meantime, you can check this one out.
If all goes well with Force of Arms we will work to bring the Grand Canon Expansion as well as the Crisis Point and Invid Invasions games to China as well.
ROBOTECH: Force of Arms artwork keeps coming in – the Zentraedi heroes are now done and just waiting for final approval. We wanted to share and see what you think.
The Zentraedi are coming and the #ROBOTECH Defense Forces are deployed getting ready for the attack…join your Zentraedi brethren (Breetai, Miriya, Khyron, and Azonia) and capture the SDF-1 and defeat the RDF
