Agents Of Mayhem Tabletop Title Aims To Outshine Its Video Game Counterpart
After the less-than-stellar launch of Volition’s Agents of Mayhem, many players are left wondering what could possibly be next. After all of the hype that surrounded the release of the video game, it’s understandable that fans would like something to kind of make up for how things ended up. That’s where the Agents of Mayhem tabletop game looks to succeed.
Academy Games has teamed up with Apollo Games, Deep Silver, and Volition to create the upcoming Agents of Mayhem tabletop game, which still has two weeks left of its Kickstarter campaign. However, the project has already more than quadrupled its goal, meaning fans will be able to enjoy a bit of mayhem on their own tables soon enough.
The game, titled Agents of Mayhem: Pride of Babylon, “is a team vs. team skirmish boardgame for 2 to 4 players. The game is played on a modular 3D board that is fully destructible. You and your opponents will play through a radiant story where every choice you make will have effects that ripple throughout the campaign. Play as either LEGION, an organization of super villains who have taken over the world, or as MAYHEM, a band of anti-heroes who will do what ever it takes to stop LEGION.” Sounds exciting, right?
Agents of Mayhem: Pride of Babylon is currently expected to ship by September of 2018. You can read more about it right here, but we’ve got a quick outline of what’s to come at the bottom of this article.

3D BOARD! – Play on a board made of modular tiles with 3D multi-level buildings that are up to 240mm high! Use the buildings as cover or to dodge an attack by jumping behind a wall. Take the high ground to gain elevation advantages and attack bonuses against your enemies. The modular tiles allow you to make hundreds of different game maps.
Destructible Terrain – You can drive enemies from behind cover by triggering explosions. These explosions and your attacks will often cause damage to a building which will eventually cause it to collapse.
Unique Characters – Every MAYHEM and LEGION character has their own highly detailed miniature and a Character Board that outlines their stats and abilities. Each character has a unique gameplay style and you will have to choose the right team for each mission. Finding the right combination of characters and tactics is half the fun of Agents of Mayhem: Pride of Babylon. The other half is blowing stuff up!
Customizable Characters – Customize your characters before each mission with an arsenal of gadget cards that slide into their Character Board and Mayhem Cards that let them unleash crazy and hilarious powers.
Character Progression – After every game, you will have the opportunity to unlock new Gadgets and buy upgrade tiles for your characters. Upgrades stay permanently in the character’s board until you decide to reset the game.
Fast Skirmish Gameplay – Alternate taking turns with your opponent in quick game play that keeps you involved at all times. On your turn, you take actions with one of your characters while your other characters regenerate some of their resources. There is no downtime and you fluidly take turns back and forth until the Mission ends.
Story Campaign – Play through an immersive campaign with a radiant storyline. Decisions you make have ripple effects that impact your future missions, assets, and abilities. Every group’s experience is unique in an open world that can branch into dozens of different story-lines full of humor and awesomeness with hundreds of ways to win.
Humor – Agents of Mayhem – Pride of Babylon is full of over the top action and humor. Get immersed into the Saints Row universe with hilarious card flavor text, mission comics, and sometimes helpful character public service announcements.

Solo and Co-op – We have added an Add-On for those that want to play Pride of Babylon solo or cooperatively.
Note – We rate Pride of Babylon as PG-13. This board game is based on the popular video game series which contains strong language in some instances.
