Last Day on Kickstarter from Small Box Games, OMEN: A Reign of War - Omega Edition Deluxe
January 17, 2017 - 1:56pm
OMEN: Reign of War is a highly rated two player, area control card game where two sons of Zeus are fighting over three cities in a bid to gain his favor. On any given turn you will be drawing cards or gathering coins, and with those coins play down the various cards you have. They can be special ability cards, feat cards, reward cards, or the core card of the game, soldier cards. The soldier cards are what you play to each individual city and once a certain threshold is reached the city becomes war-torn. At that point the strengths of the troop cards are totaled and whoever has the highest gets to take a reward form the city. Each city has a stack of three reward cards and once two of the cities have been depleted the game will end. You will get points for each reward card based on where it is and each completed feat card, whoever has the most points is the winner. This edition being Kickstarted is a straight reprint of the last edition, the Omega Edition, which brought the entire game into one box. What makes this one special is that the box will be black with embossed gold art and lettering, and the coins have been upgraded from cardboard to custom metal coins. The campaign is super short so if you haven't already checked it out, I suggest heading over to the campaign page before it ends on the 18th.
