Can the Luftwaffe overwhelm the RAF? Can the allies hold the line in France? Who will win the Battle for the North Atlantic? You decide as armies from both sides are formed by your decisions and battles are executed at your command. The future of the civilized world hangs in the balance!
Battlecards is a card game in which you and your opponent(s) build up forces and conduct battles in many of the great conflicts in history. This particular starter set deals with the Western European Theater during World War II. The game consists of a Conflict deck of 50 cards, 47 Arsenal cards for the British forces, and 47 Arsenal cards for the German forces. Based upon the draw of Conflict cards, players may build forces, learn about their opponent, gain a secret advantage, or enter into a battle. The objective is to be the player at the end of the game with the most victory points, or to win the battle for your opponent’s homeland. In addition, 20-card expansion packs are available to improve the selection and capabilities of Arsenal cards and Conflict cards for this set. Additionally, this set can be combined with the other World War II Starter Sets so you and your friends may play the entire war as you please.
