You decide not to play Bastille Battalion right now.
You open the hatch and crawl outside. The air smells good after so much time stewing in your own gamer-funk.
Occurs when using a Bastille Battalion control rig or Bastille Battalion control rig loaner voucher. Takes you to a control panel where you can play the mini-game Bastille Battalion. The objective of the mini-game is to collect cheese curds over a number of "matches" played against a random opposing castle. Each match consists of 2 building/collecting turns followed by a face-off turn.
After a full game of 5 matches or after losing a face-off, the game ends and you are given the opportunity to "lock-in" your score. You are allowed to play 5 games per day, but you can only "lock-in" your score once per day. If you ascend you are allowed another 5 games, but a score that you locked in before you ascended is discounted (whether or not you lock in a new score). Rewards will also be given after your first play-through, depending on the settings chosen.
The 4 selectors surrounding the main play area can be used to adjust your starting stats (as displayed on the dials at the bottom) and choose which rewards you get. The 6 stats are Military Attack (MA), Castle Attack (CA), Psychological Attack (PA), Military Defence (MD), Castle Defence (CD), and Psychological Defence (PD).
