Hey everyone! Thought it would be cool to have a thread discussing Puzzle Strike variants/mods that people might have.
I don’t know if this really counts as a variant exactly, but my favorite way to play the game is random characters for both characters, and random bank. No re-rolls. I like it this way because I feel like it forces people to understand the whole game rather than just the characters they typically play. Balance wise it can be wonky sometimes; some matchups are hard and they become really hard if certain chips are in the bank, but, I actually think it’s pretty fun even playing those matches because it forces you to try to come up with some form of Hail Mary strategy to try and win anyway.
Do you have any house rules or special ways that you like to play?
