Battle of Legends is developed to simulate fighting in ancient-medieval battles based on the idea of the assortment of legendary historical units such as Roman Legion, English Longbowmen, European Knights, Mongolian archers, etc. each having different moving, attacking, defense abilities, and special skills. You may either choose to muster your army from those legends or play a scenario where they have been already set.
The dice combat system is kept simple yet efficient, in which engagements are resolved quickly by referencing unit cards assemblies. To succeed in battle, you must consider unit types, unit numbers, ranges, terrain effects and coordinate your attacks accordingly.
On top of that, unit special skills allow players to apply some famous combat tactics like oblique order, inverted wedge, feigned retreat, hit and run, single-double envelopment, etc. which all start with breaking the enemy's line and cohesion, continues with fighting with smaller units, and ends with encirclement or attack from multiple sides.
Command cards further increase the strategic depth of the game by forcing you foresee upcoming events and make necessary maneuvers. You must decide whether to move large number of units, or attack effectively, or hide behind your shields before the next turn begins.
When used, Tactic cards give you an immediate and powerful benefit. That brings “AHA!” moments to the game. Players are to be on the lookout for a suitable opportunity to play their secret hands and change the fate of the battle.
Welcome and Enjoy !
