Summary: “A fast-paced cards-and-dice game of deadly hand-to-hand combat. Set in the era of swords and shields, spears and axes, players take on the roles of Knights, Barbarians, or other fighters locked in a deadly struggle. Players can choose combat scenarios from a range of historical eras, or from fantasy settings. After choosing fighters, weapons, and armor, players build and shuffle decks of Combat Action Cards. Players then draw a hand of cards and play each Combat Action one at a time. Players win when they kill or incapacitate their opponent. A fighter is out of the fight when they are reduced to 0 Body, and the game ends when all fighters on one side are out of the fight. A player wins when they reduce all of their opponents’ to 0 Body.”
