Master the Ancient Arts of War

To succeed you must successfully manage not only your armies on the battlefield, but those that are waiting to be deployed. Each round you will draw 3 Unit Coins from your bag and then take turns using them to perform actions. Each coin shows a military unit on one side and can be used for one of several actions. The game ends when one player, or one team in the case of a four-player game, has placed all of their control markers. That player or team is the winner!

 

Not all battles are fought on the open field. In many cases defenders hide behind the thick walls of mighty castles. Now is the time to prepare for Siege! As castles grew larger and stronger throughout the Middle Ages, new ways evolved to scale, knock down, and even undermine their walls. In War Chest: Siege™ you will be confronted with fortified locations. Fear not, you have siege towers and trebuchets at your disposal and hardy sappers to both build your own fortifications and undermine your opponents’. Can you successfully return to the battlefield with your war engines in this ingenious and engaging game of tactics and strategy?

 

Siege is an expansion for the highly acclaimed War Chest. The base game is required to play.

The old general returned to the kingdom on the eve of the heir’s tenth birthday. He brought with him a book — or rather, what looked like a book from the outside. 

The queen sat down with her child the next day, and together they opened the book. They found that the insides had been carved out and filled with more coins for their game, as well as some letters and wax seals. They took their chest from the shelf, opened it, and began to play…

The chivalric system was a huge part of medieval warfare. Various offices of state were handed out to the highborn of the land, from Bannermen that surrounded kings and queens, to Earls and Heralds enacting their liege’s will across the realm. Bishoprics had much land and influence associated with them, and were sought after position for nobles.

Can you add these four new influential units to your force, and use royal proclamations to your advantage, to once again triumph in this masterful game of tactical warfare?
