Description Edit | History

Lionheart is a simple wargame that is like chess but with dice rolls that determine the success or failure of a capture move. There are seven different units: King, Knight, Archer, Heavy Infantry, Infantry, Mercenary, and Peasant. Each turn players can perform any 2 actions: move, turn, or attack. Foot units move one square forward per action. Mounted units move as many unblocked squares in front of them as they like. Units attack the square they are facing (archers attack an area of squares in front of them). Attacks are resolved by rolling the combat dice. Each appropriate symbol rolled (axes or arrows) counts as a "hit". Scoring more hits than the target has hit points removes some of the units (miniatures) from the target army. The winner is the player who eliminates his opponent's King or eliminates every other warrior in his opponent's army leaving the King standing alone on the field of battle.

7 2014 Lionheart house rules, with optional tactical cards
House rules for Lionheart developed after lots of playing, but still trying to stay close to the original rules. Posted in the spirit of sharing ideas for this classic game. Edit note: Updated version has 12 more tactical cards added. 2nd edit note: I can't leave it alone, another 12 cards added to make 48 in total.
