A strategy board game of medieval siege warfare for 2-4 players!
This is the first board game from Mora Games. Set to launch on Kickstarter on April 11th, 2017.
In Wages of War, players take on the role of generals in an army laying siege to an enemy castle. Manage resources to produce weapons, and hire soldiers to wield them in battle as you send wave after wave to attack the enemy castle! The player who inflicts the most damage on the castle by the time it is destroyed, wins that glory!
“Inverse worker placement”
The core game mechanic in Wages of War
Gamers who love worker placement games and games like Puerto Rico will love the “inverse-worker-placement” mechanic featured in Wages of War. Send your workers to set up buildings in the 5 encampments surrounding the castle then issue orders for them to gather resources, produce weapons, hire soldiers, and attack!
Whereas most worker placement games have you placing workers on the various things you can interact with, in Wages of War, you station them at their post (converting workers into buildings) and then issue orders to them each round.
Muster your army and equip them with swords, bows and axes! Lay waste to the castle siege towers, trebuchets, and cannons!
Attacking the castle rewards you points based on the strength of the enemy forces you defeat, but you will suffer losses, so you must continually bolster your forces!
Wages of War is an exciting game that keeps everyone involved and engaged at every moment! Every player’s turn offers something for you to do. Enjoy the thrill of launching a successful attack upon the castle using the mighty army you’ve diligently prepared!
