Are you a fan of epic duels, strategic gameplay, and stunning artwork? Look no further than "Unmatched," a board game series that brings legendary characters to life in thrilling, tactical battles. Whether you're a seasoned gamer or a newcomer, Unmatched offers an exciting experience that is both accessible and deeply engaging.

The Essence of Unmatched

Unmatched is a highly asymmetrical miniatures fighting game for two to four players, designed by Rob Daviau, Justin D. Jacobson, and Chris Leder. Each character in the game is represented by a unique deck of cards that reflects their fighting style, abilities, and personality. The objective is simple: reduce your opponent's health to zero before they do the same to you.

Legendary Characters and Expansions

One of the standout features of Unmatched is its diverse roster of characters from various universes. The base game, "Unmatched: Battle of Legends, Volume One," includes iconic figures such as King Arthur, Alice (from Wonderland), Sinbad, and Medusa. Each character's deck is meticulously crafted to capture their essence and strategic depth.

The game continually expands with new sets and characters, including:

  • "Unmatched: Robin Hood vs. Bigfoot": Pit the legendary outlaw against the mythical creature in a battle of wits and strength.
  • "Unmatched: Cobble & Fog": Enter the dark, foggy streets of Victorian London with Dracula, Sherlock Holmes, Jekyll & Hyde, and the Invisible Man.
  • "Unmatched: Buffy the Vampire Slayer": Join Buffy, Angel, Spike, and other beloved characters in their fight against the forces of darkness.
  • “Unmatched: Sun’s Origin”: highlights two legendary fighters from Japan. Battle Oda Nobunaga, credited with unifying Japan, against Tomoe Gozen, the unlikely and fierce warrior, or mix-and-match these heroes with any other Unmatched fighters.



Each expansion is standalone but also compatible with other sets, allowing for endless combinations and replayability. Unmatched is simply a power fantasy battle simulation that transcends all space and time.

Stunning Artwork and Design

Visual appeal is a major strength of Unmatched. The game features beautiful, unique artwork by artists such as Oliver Barrett and Ian O'Toole. The components, including miniatures and cards, are crafted with high quality, ensuring an immersive experience that draws players into the game's universe.

Strategic Depth and Replayability

Unmatched is easy to learn but offers significant strategic depth. Players must carefully manage their hands, positioning, and special abilities to outmaneuver their opponents. The asymmetry of the characters means that no two matches are the same, and mastering each deck requires a different approach.

Community and Competitions



The Unmatched community is vibrant and growing, with players around the world sharing strategies, organizing tournaments, and creating fan content. The game's designers actively engage with the community, providing updates, new content, and listening to player feedback. 

Locally, Gaming Library holds regular tournaments and tutorials for those wanting to learn and join the community. Along with our partner cafes, we provide exclusive prizes and limited edition tokens as special treats for our payers.

The winner will win a trip to the CMON Expo 2024 in Bangkok, Thailand (air travel and accommodations included), and represent the country in the Southeast Asia Tournament. Rules and guidelines will be released soon so stay tuned!
