You know, it’s too bad that the various fantasy races can’t get along. Elves are always fighting with Orcs. Dwarves are fighting with Ogres. Humans end up fighting against pretty much everyone in some capacity. But it does give us grounds for lots of games, though. Legends of Erathmor: War of the Races is a new fantasy battle card game that’s up on Kickstarter and looking for some funding love.
The game is played by picking your race and choosing your army. Then, players arrange their forces out onto the board with the fighters in the front, the mages coming next, and their king at the back, directing the battle. Attack and defend, playing shield cards to help bolster your defense. Mages use their elemental magic against your enemies. Use chains cards to capture enemy forces and make them fight for you until they can be released by playing Keys cards. Play 1v1, or teams, or free-for-all with up to 5 players.
The campaign’s a bit over half-funded with still 31 days left on the clock.
