Get Steam Powered with The Smog Riders

2 Minute Read
Oct 10 2017

The latest project from Scale75 is a steam powered board game with great looking minis and an ever changing map.

Choose your character and vie for the control of the Stygian Dimension’s steam technology. Players follow missions in order to get their hands on powerful artifacts, and eliminate other players in their way, on the path to domination in an ever changing environment. The player with the most points at the end of the game is the victor.

Smog Riders has 2 factions – with expansions included in stretch goals – with some fun characters for players to choose from. The minis look great painted up…


The basics:

  • 2-4 Players
  • Ages 14+
  • 60 minutes to play
