Play as one of the champions from a rag tag I.T. team as they battle themselves, but also the evil hacker Der Magicker, who is turning the users of entire skyscraper into zombies from a virus encoded spam email!
Now it's up to you to try to not get infected and be the first to recruit the biggest army, defeat Der Magicker and earn some epic bragging rights.
BETA is a fast paced, ever changing, item looting, army building game that will make you laugh, make you cry and make you want to play again. Welcome to I.T.
The goal of the game is to be the first to get 10 minion soldiers in your army. You will be playing against the other players, but also against the evil hacker Der Magicker, who is collecting his own army of zombies.
Players will draw cards and loot piles in search of their weapon and anything that will help them win the game. During the search through the I.T. deck, players may get infected and join the zombie side. But fear not, you can still win as a zombie, in fact, it's pretty fun.
While getting 10 minions is the most common way to win, there is another way. Shuffled into the Zombie deck, are sets of 4 BETA components. When a player draws or steals all 4 components, they complete their BETA device and instantly win the game. Pretty Cool huh? Well don't get too excited, completing your BETA device isn't easy, and you're going to have to make some enemies to do it. But, think about the bragging rights.
Minions are the units in your epic army, for I.T. players they are powerful sergeants, Employees of the Month and the boring ol office worker, or STUPID USERS as the champions often refer to them. On the Zombie side, minions are Alpha Zombies (which are just infected office workers), Beta Zombies and the powerful Zed Zombies. These dudes are bad news and each have unique powers that will surely cause Chaos for the other players.
These are the most common minions and also the only units that can be recuited back and forth from zombie to I.T. Every Champion can unlock their special power if they collect 4 of these units in their color, easier said than done.
These units are stronger than Employees, and if a Champion recruits their color Employee of the Month, the unit becomes even more powerful.
These are the best minion cards in the I.T. army, each of them have their own unique ongoing power that could lead a Champion to victory. Only problem with Sergeants is they quickly become the target of the other jealous players.
These minions are the next evolution of Alphas Zombies, they are more powerful and when a zombie champion draws one, they get to activate the minion's power, which sometimes is all the edge that is needed to win the game.
Zeds are the full evolution of Der Magicker's virus, these minions are the most powerful and each has a unique game changing power that a zombie player gets to use when they recruit one of these bad guys into their army.
