I like the way that Gregg stated it on our Cardboard Carnage Facebook page: “It’s tiny. It’s epic. It’s my kingdom.”
Enough said. The game really is tiny. The player cards are smaller than 4×6 photographs. At the start of the game, each player chooses one faction from a fantastical selection, such as Lizardfolk, Halflings, Orcs, Dark Elves, Shapeshifters, Undead, Centaurs, Dwarves, Merfolk, Goblins, and many others. Each player receives 7 meeples of one color, as well as 1 mana, 1 ore, 1 food, 1 research, 1 tower token, and a randomly-assigned territory card.
