Description Edit | History

Runewars is an epic board game of conquest, adventure, and fantasy empires for two to four players. Runewars pits players against each other in a strategic game of battles and area control, where they must gather resources, raise armies, and lay siege to heavily fortified cities.

Runewars takes place in the same popular fantasy universe as the board games Runebound, Descent: Journeys in the Dark and Rune Age, and dozens of fan-favorite heroes and monsters play their part. The wars for the dragon runes are beginning, and only one faction will emerge victorious.

2 Runewars Fatecardset
Runewars fatecardset for every player. Use one set for every player in order to reduce the randomness of the fatecards. This way every player has got the same chances of drawing good cards over the course of a game. The overall chances are the same, just the distribution differs in order to account for diplomacy luck as well. Print the set 4 times, cut the cards and put them into cardsleeves. I suggest using 4 different sets of cardsleeves in order to avoid mixing the sets up while stored in the box. Especially suggested with my 1vs1 variant posted here: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1224635/1-vs-1-variant-balanced-fatecardsets

1 Skrót zasad do Runewars PL - poprawiona i uzupełniona wersja!
Poprawiona i ulepszona wersja - niestety nie wyrobiłem się już na dwóch stronach. Zalecam wydrukowanie pierwszej strony (przygotowanie gry) oddzielnie na jednej kartce, a strony 2-3 dwustronnie na drugiej kartce. Pozdrawiam wszystkich równie mocno oczarowanych tą świetną grą!
