One of the big things keeping me from getting the game is player amount. Has anyone tried to play it as a 2v2 game? Does anyone know if they are going to put this in the game at a later time? If it isn't in the game, is it possible to add a team version of the game?
I, too, am looking forward to 2v2 battles. Here is what the rule book has to say on the matter:
The Runewars Miniatures Game is designed for two players, but it can be enjoyed by more. To play with a larger group of players, divide the players into two teams as equally as possible.
Using the army-building rules on page 3 of this reference, each team builds a single army with the same point values, regardless of the number of players on that team. Each player takes exclusive control of one or more of his team's units and makes all decisions for those units including setting the command tool, performing actions, spending boons, etc. Abilities that affect allied units affect all units of that team, regardless of who the owner is.
Players win or lose together as a team. It is possible for all of one player's units to be destroyed, but for his team to win by destroying all the opposing team's units or having the highest score at the end of the game.
During the game, players can talk and strategize with each other, but must do so in public (i.e., their opponents must be able to hear and understand all discussion). All players on the same team can see the selections on their teammates' command tools.
On the one hand, I look forward to this. I really enjoyed team epic matches in X-Wing and think you can get the same feel here. What I would like to do is get 100-point starter armies for each of the 4 factions and play a team game where the two good teams face the two evil teams. I think it could be fun.
On the other hand, I don't feel like these rules offer enough. I would really like to see some new deployment cards that have 4 deployment areas for a 4-army free-for all.
