Description

If the matching unit occupies a neutral location, place one of your Control Markers onto that location. Set in a grim future, Farsight immerses players in a world where powerful Private Military Corporations fight viciously over the Earth’s last remaining resources.

Choose a coin from your hand and put it facedown into your discard pile (Do not show it to your opponent). In War Chest you take on the role of a medieval commander vying for control of a battlefield. To succeed you must manage your deployed units, draft new units and successfully manoeuvre the battlefield to outwit and outsmart your opponent(s).Recruit a new coin from your supply into your discard area, your opponent will get to know what Unit you recruit.

Note: In a two-player game, you will not use the outer areas of the board indicated by the darker hexes (shown as red areas in the example). At the start of the game, raise your banner call (drafting) several various units into your army, which you then use to capture key points on the board. 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 tactics on the units are varied and interesting, and can really turn the tide of the game. Players need to be aware of what their opponent's units can do to ensure they don't move their own units in to an unfavourable position. This is, again, something that more experienced players might perform better at than new players but all the units have clear to understand tactic cards that can be referenced so shouldn't a major problem. The game ends when one player — or one team in the case of a four-player game — has placed all of their control markers. (Unofficial solo variant is available in the file area)If you have any pics of games in progress or upgrades you’ve added to your game feel free to share. As the corporations battle for control of the field, events ranging from weather to deadly plagues will encourage players to change their strategies as the game goes on. The first player to capture 8 of 12 areas, or the 3 areas closest to their opponent, claims victory.

The Royal Coin does not have a matching unit. It can only be used to perform facedown actions (or the tactic on the Royal Guard unit). You may discard any coin face-up into your discard pile to have the matching unit control the location it occupies. If you choose to place the coin on the board this can either be on an empty space with either one of your control markers, or on a space where the same unit is present to bolster it (i.e. make it more difficult to get rid of) The game continues until one player or one team has placed all of their Control Markers on locations. Locations are a special kind of hex, indicated on the board with green knotwork symbols.Control a location that you occupy by discarding a coin that matches the a unit on the board on a control space. If the space contains an opponent’s control marker, this is returned to the player. Set-up is pretty straight forward. Each player takes six control markers and selects four units. The units can be selected randomly or using the suggested set-ups. Each player then takes all of their chips for their units from the box. Two chips for each unit are added in to the player’s bag along with their faction marker. Gameplay On your turn, select a coin and either place it on the board, discard it face up, or discard it face down. In addition to tactics (indicated by TACTIC on the Unit Card) some units have special attributes (indicated by ) and/or restrictions (indicated by ). War Chest is such beautiful game. It's a heavily abstracted, bag building area control game, a combination that is not seen often, if at all. The production value is amazing with all the units being represented by hefty poker chips. There is a decent amount of variety of units in the box giving the game a lot of replay value. The rulebook also comes with suggested scenarios/units that are inspired by historical battles. Alternatively, the units can be shuffled and dealt to each player for a more random set-up.

Note, each player will need to keep an area separate to their supply that will be their discard pile. It is from the discard pile that you refill your bag when you need more coins, not from the supply. War Chest is played over a number of rounds until one person (or team) has placed all of their control markers. Each round is split in to two phases. Phase one is the start of the round and each player draws three chips from their bag, keeping them secret from their opponent.Take any one coin from your supply, show it to your opponent, and put it face-up into your discard pile. In very rare circumstances you may have only one or two coins between your hand and discard pile. If this happens, draw the coins that you have. Set-up is pretty straight forward. Each player takes six control markers and selects four units. The units can be selected randomly or using the suggested set-ups. Each player then takes all of their chips for their units from the box. Two chips for each unit are added in to the player's bag along with their faction marker.
