Hello again everyone !!
Do you remember the Scenario cards for 8th? (Click on the VIDEO Link to see how they worked.). AoS has one set too on pre order this week and we received a deck with the GH2017.
-Designed for free play.
-Replace battle plan and regular map/victory condition.
-Create an exiting battle in 1 minutes.
Split Objectives, Deployment and Twist in 3 Decks (ignore ruse and sudden death for now)
Then Reveal the top card for each deck and you should get something like this :
Treasure Hunters ! place 6 objectives and roll a dice for each one you control at the EOT. If you roll a 6 you find the treasure, player holding the treasure at the end of turn 5 win !
Roll a dice, higher choose side.
Roll a dice on a 4+ get 2 extra twist on 1-3 play without twist.
Rolled 4 ! and picked 2 more twist (replacing the old one)
Get a second objectives and deploy everything first to get first turn.
So i drawn an extra objective getting this :
King slayer : Kill point count, doubled if the general is killed.
So the game we get would be :
-Deploy on the narrow side of the table.
-Deploy first all the army to go first
-2 objectives : kill points and treasure hunt. Battle can end on a tie if we both complete one.
Sound like a fun game and only took 1 minute to generate, i swear it was the first game drawn, i didn't made multiple try (yet).
Ruse and SD cards are used to balance free play :
You count total wounds in the army. The one with the lower number get a Ruse, if the other player have more than double number of wounds before the game start you get a sudden death victory condition.
Drawn 1 from each deck :
Ruse : Re-spawn a lost unit.
Sudden death : Win end of turn 3 if you have no enemy models in your territory (ho ho ho).
I am not a big fan of using wounds, the cards are a great idea to generate games on the fly but i prefer to use points. (Yea i play brayherd most of the time my wounds are not SC wounds ^^). So i guess i could use the 3 first deck (deploy, objo, twist) and keep the 2 other for special occasion.
I'd love some rules to use Ruse and Sudden death with points. Like a reverse auction list building where the lower in points get Ruse and the one without monster get sudden death (or something like that).
To conclude : Awesome addition to the game, i'll add them to my models case this instant, so i always have them with me on play night.
