WWE Legends Royal Rumble Card Game sees a cavalcade of classic wrestlers enter the ring

Including ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage and Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts.

The WWE Royal Rumble, the free-for-all wrestling match between dozens of beloved superstars, is being turned into a card game.

Like the annual wrestling event that bears its name, WWE Legends Royal Rumble Card Game throws together a collection of 30 wrestlers from across WWE history, including the Undertaker, ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage, Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts, Ultimate Warrior, Ric Flair and Andre the Giant, in one enormous match. WWE Legends Royal Rumble sees up to 10 players selecting their favourite superstar and facing off against everyone else to be the last person standing.

Each player has access to a hand of cards that enable them to target their opponents with various attacks and signature moves, as well as defend against any incoming assaults. Possible actions include ‘cheap tricks’ such as piledrivers and punches, which can be stopped by a well-timed ref card, while playing cards alongside attacks - such as chairs and ladders - can boost the damage dealt.

Should a wrestler be overcome and thrown out of the ring, they are removed from the match and replaced by a new entrant. Any wrestler that successfully defeats another is gifted with the Titleholder token - at least, until another wrestler achieves the same victory.

If a player’s wrestler is removed from the match and there are no other available wrestlers left to control, they are eliminated from the game. When there is only one wrestler left standing, the player controlling them is named the ultimate winner of the Royal Rumble.

WWE Legends Royal Rumble Card Game is being published by Ravensburger, which has previously released games such as Disney board game Disney Villainous and co-op board game Horrified.

The announcement of WWE Legends Royal Rumble follows the release of WWE: Headlock, Paper, Scissors by publisher WizKids earlier this year. A spin-off from Dungeons & Dragons party game Rock, Paper, Wizard, Headlock, Paper, Scissors sees players attempting to win bouts by second-guessing their opponents and playing the right moves. Other WWE tabletop games have included board game WWE Superstar Showdown, miniatures game WWE HeroClix and dice game WWE Dice Masters.

WWE Legends Royal Rumble Card Game is set to be released on July 26th at a retail price of $20 (£15).
