Players: 2–4 / Ages: 14+ / Play Time: 30 min
Germania Magna: Border in Flames is a game of shifting alliances for 2 to 4 players in which you take the role of a Germanic warlord leading his warriors into Roman provinces, across the Rhine and Danube rivers.
The Roman Empire is still too strong to be conquered, but its fields and cities provide a very attractive target for raiding. While your warriors will find Loot, you, their leader, will be presented with an excellent opportunity to prove yourself a worthy commander and achieve eternal Glory. The enemy is still very powerful, so in order to win, you would need to forge alliances (however fragile) with other warlords. Some of you may decide, however, to switch sides each time the tides of war change.
In Germania Magna, the competition between players is as important as their cooperation. The game mechanics reflect the problem of forces fragmented in a fight with a bigger and more powerful enemy. The game includes dozens of beautiful illustrations portraying Germanic chieftains, warriors, and fighting styles as well as Roman provinces and their army formations.
Germania Magna offers a rich historical theme and allows players to experience a surprisingly deep war game for the pocket-sized box it fits in. Enjoy this quick and intense game on a trip, in a pub, or between longer games. During his turn, every player can choose two different movement cards from the two different hands of cards in the cardholders to make the creatures move on the race track.
