Village War is a card drafting, resource management, and spirit war game. The theme and narration are a combination of the history, folklore, myths, and our fantasy of the Igbo tribe in Nigeria, Africa.
During game setup, players each take their own village (including 10 different warriors, 11 resources which are selected randomly, 3 artifacts, and their wall). Their aim is to win the battle and earn ‘more’ resources as tributes paid from other players.
The winner is the player with their highest VP (a sum of tributes collected and warrior power rank).
Please note: warriors are different and some of them possess unique powers to form COMBOs during the war! And the artifacts are gifts from the gods with fierce powers. As players, you also have the chance to buy new artifacts during gameplay.
Village War: The Calamity is the first of 5 game sequel that exposes the Igbo culture more than any game in history. The game story (12 pages) narrates the inspirations behind the artwork and the story. And we featured masquerades, Priest(ess) and other creatures with Igbo origin in mind.
The calamity is the first of 5 Village War game series.
