Ars Victor is a fast-paced, tense, two-player boardgame of tactical combat. You command a furious fighting force OF THE FUTURE against a ferocious foe. Recruit your armies. Scout out a unique map. Draw a hand of Command Cards. Deploy your Vanguard. The battle is joined!
All this, in a game you can finish in an hour!
Ars Victor comes with a plethora of lovingly-designed bits and pieces. Each game comes with full-color, mounted map tiles and units, two decks of cards, and a dozen colored dice. The rulebook comes with examples for every part of the game, and sample mission setups to get you started.
The 1.5" square Unit Counters tell you everything you need to know about a piece. Simple icons and language-independence makes it easy for new players to understand what the units can do.
Ars Victor comes with a dozen different unit types. Each one has its own distinct use on the battlefield.
