ArchiWrecks is an asymmetric 2-player only dexterity game. One of the players takes on the role of architect constructing buildings out of dice, the other player takes on the role of a giant monster that is attempting to smash the city.
Each card has the Architect constructing a specific building with dice, the card also offers a way for the Monster player to attempt to wreck the building. After each round, the card is flipped and either shows the city making progress or the rubble of the city as the Monster smashed past.

Did you know?
ArchiWrecks was originally called "Mechs & Monsters" and designed to be a 16 card wallet game, a la Brave Rats. Each side would feature a Mech or a Monster and players would use effects to gain symbols for set-collection. I got great feedback from Button Shy Games and ultimately reworked it into the 8 card ArchiWrecks and hopefully will be the starting point for many more games in this universe, because who doesn’t love Giant Monsters wrecking a city!
