BattleLore: Call to Arms

No cover image available
Expansion for:  

Call to Arms is the first purchasable expansion to the popular BattleLore game system. This expansion allows for the personalized deployment of your troops. Individual games will no longer be subject to predetermined scenarios and troop placement.

Instead, players may choose various pre-defined battle maps (or create their own!). Then from an innovative Deployment deck, players may set-up their armies as they please. The new deployment deck will allow you to react to the land, establish reserves, and gain the initiative by out-scouting your opponent.

The expansion also introduces a more organized deployment system through the Feudal Levy system: new tokens are included that correspond to the three color types of troops.

The organized version also includes further customization with the Specialist concept. Players may choose two specialist cards during set-up. Benefits range from upgrading all archers to long bows, increasing unit size based on your Warrior's Level, and additional movements, to name a few.

Set-up now includes the following actions:
Ready your deployment deck and draw deployment cards
Set-up your units based on the cards drawn
Determine initiative
Deploy your Reserve units
Establish your War Council
Select and play 2 Specialist cards
The expansion also includes new terrain hexes.
