Gearbox Announces ‘Tiny Tina’s Robot Tea Party’ Card Game

During Gearbox’s PAX East 2019 presentation, Randy Pitchford took to the stage to show off a new card game in the “Borderlands” universe.

“Tiny Tina’s Robot Tea Party” is the first “Borderlands” tea party of its kind, and is available for purchase on the PAX East show floor.

The game was created as part of a partnership between Gearbox, Nerdvana Games, and XYZ Labs. It features 80 total cards with the following denominations: 5 Claptrap Bodies, 54 Parts, and 21 Actions. It’s a game for 2-5 players with rounds that last around 15 minutes and is meant for players ages 13 and up.

Players begin with one of 5 Claptrop body “pieces” as well as a selection of cards. From there, they must work to build up the familiar robot mascot as a Sheriff, Pirate, Gentleman, or Party Claptrap. When the corresponding outfit cards have been played in the correct order, a winner is pronounced.

It’s not as simple as just drawing cards and placing them, however. Players must contend with each other’s action cards, which can force them to dismantle burgeoning Claptrap creations, call “party fouls,” or perform other offensive or defensive actions. It’s meant to be a fast-paced game, so things will happen in the blink of an eye.

Those interested in picking up their own copy of the game can do so via the official “Tiny Tina’s Robot Tea Party” website.
