How to Play Monsterpocalypse: Full Length Tutorial

2 Minute Read
Sep 14 2018

Check out Privateer Press’ new full-length tutorial video and learn to play the Monsterpocalypse Hobby Miniatures Game.

The tutorial guides players through the epic conflict of two or more giant kaiju monsters brawling, blasting, and body-slamming each other in a dense destructible urban environment. Alongside these towering monsters, lesser minions, such as powerful tanks, fighter jets, flying saucers, fearsome dinosaurs, and demonic fiends fight to capture important locations and help power their monster to victory. The tutorial, available here , runs nearly 30 minutes long and gives players everything they need to know to dive into the game when it releases on September 21.


The tutorial covers all the basic rules of Monsterpocalypse. The game features two different Agendas players can choose from when building their armies: the noble Protectors, who want to save the world and the creatures that inhabit it from destruction, or the evil Destroyers, who seek to enslave and destroy the Earth for their own diabolical purposes. Both Agendas feature three different Factions, each with its own unique monsters and units. Players can freely mix and match any models from the Factions within their Agenda when building their army. The game will launch with two different one-player starter sets, one for each of the two Agendas. These starter sets will be expanded by Monster, Unit, and Building packs, which will contain new models for players to use in their games.

“We want players to be able to get started playing Monsterpocalypse right from the first day,” said Privateer Press Executive Director William Shick. “The game will feel familiar to any veteran players, but we’ve streamlined and simplified gameplay to make it faster as well as easier for new players to pick up—which is the added goal of our new tutorial video.”

The Monsterpocalypse Hobby Miniatures Game represents an updated and streamlined second edition of the original 2008 collectible game’s rules. Additionally, instead of using pre-painted collectible figures to play, the new game’s most noteworthy difference is its use of highly detailed resin and metal hobby miniatures, which players get to assemble before playing. As a hobby game, this upgrade to the Monsterpocalypse experience provides the opportunity for players to customize their armies through painting and modeling them.
