Nomination: Best board game - Fastaval 2015
Ancient empires and people set the stage for this epic strategy game. Do you have the iron will needed to drive elephants over the Alps? Do you prefer slow strategic advance or should your enemies be harassed by constant guerrilla attacks? The strategic choice is only the beginning of the tactical combat where your armies' strengths and weaknesses are tested in brutal skirmishes on the battlefield.
The game is nominated for combining the dilemmas of worker placement, area control, and deck-building in a game for everyone that loves the combination of strategy and tactics in the many wars of history. The game takes the hard choices from three well-known genres and combines them in an unprecedented way.
"Sir... they have elephants!"
