Remember Moloch? You know, this artificial intelligence guy who spreads across few states and tries to destroy humanity? Anyway, he’s in real trouble, here on the board, as The Outpost is really kicking his butt!
His HQ is only at 3 HP, where The Outpost’s HQ is at 6. It’s the last turn, human guerrillas did they final moves and did it quite well, because when you look at the board, you’ll see Moloch is going to be annihilated! We won’t let this happen, right (OK, normally we should – it’s the AI that’s trying to destroy humanity – but try to act like a robot for a while)? Fortunately, Moloch has a chance to turn the tables and that’s where you come in!
Look at the board (click it, to enlarge). You are given 5 tiles and you must discard 2 of them. Then you may use the other 3 in any way you like. Your task is to use the tiles to help Moloch win this game in a final battle, which will take place after you make your moves. Simple? I don’t think so 🙂
And of course – there’s a reward! 10 people who send us the correct answers will get a promocode allowing them to download Neuroshima Hex for free! This competition will only last until 6. September, so don’t waste your time!
