Playing the boardgame "Battles of Westeros"!

Every battle in this game has a limit of rounds, which is set in the "battle plans".

Each round is divided into 4 phases:

1- RALLY phase

2- MARSHALING phase

3- COMMAND phase

4- REGROUP phase

After the fourth phase, another round begins and the whole process continues until one side is victorious or the last round of the game is finished.

Each phase has his own actions:

RALLY phase:

a-Determine advantage
b-Refresh commanders
c-Rally units

MARSHALING phase:

a-Receive order tokens
b-Draw leadership cards

COMMAND phase:

a-Use order token
b-Play leadership card
c-Pass

REGROUP phase:

a-Resolve status conditions
b-Score victory points
c-Check victory conditions
d-Discard excess resources
e-Recover morale
f-Advance round marker

After Regroup phase, victory conditions should be checked, for controlling if one side had fulfilled them.

If not, the game continues with a new RALLY phase.

This whole procedure looks complex, but after playing for a while you'll recognize that it works smoothly.

  1. I am not a gamer, but I saw some figures of this game, and they seems to be good! (scale ??????????)
    (I'm a fan of the new serie and the books!)
    The packs are very expensive and I don't want to buy them only for a few number of figures!
    Do you have (or can you post some pictures) of them?
    Many thanks!
