My husband and I recently played a round of Battlelore and had a great time. I say that because, while fairly close, I won. :)
Battlelore is a 2 player competitive game in which you are both trying to earn Victory Points. Depending on your scenarios, each of you earns VP in different ways whether it is buy occupying certain sections of the map (left, center, middle), occupying certain types of tiles (mountains, forest, hills) or a variety of other placements.
