Green Box of Games



These games have been originally developed for the Green Box of Games, although some similarities with mechanics from other games is naturally unavoidable.

War 2.0 – Game #25

We’ve put this game in the “Original” category, although it shares several rules with the basic War! that is placed under “Inspired“. Although the mechanics of this game are hardly revolutionary, the game is more inspired by a genre than by a single game. It is a game of conflict and conquest, of claiming territory on the map by attacking your opponents while trying to protect what you have gained. The game has no randomness, instead relying on psychology and bluffing to maintain the suspense necessary for a engaging game of combat. Continue reading “War 2.0 – Game #25”
