Regnum Angelica (2014)
2 - 2
Join in the valiant battle to end the ultimate stalemate of good vs. evil and etch the final outcome into history. Regnum Angelica is a two-player strategic card/board game pitting Gabriel and his army of archangels against Beelzebub and the dark forces of the fallen. Wield the three elements of fire, earth and water in angelic combat, use ancient angelic scripts to gain an advantage over your opponent, or deploy pillars to protect your troops in an attempt to infiltrate the enemy's realm. Regnum Angelica is played with one player having the white deck to represent the archangels of Gabriel, and the other the black deck to represent Beelzebub and his army of fallen angels. Each deck consists of three types of cards: Angels, which are your main combat units; Angelic Scripts, written in the ancient celestial alphabet (Malachim) and granting the angels special abilities to assist them in infiltrating the enemy realm; and Pillars, which call up the elements of earth, fire, or water to protect them from enemy attacks. Each army has a power meter which is charged when either side's angels visit earth. The power meter must be carefully managed if you hope to crush your opponent as your power meter determines your movement and your ability to execute the Malachim. If too many Angelic scripts are played, then your mobility on the board suffers; if, on the other hand, you use your power for movement, then your ability to harness the powers of the angelic scripts wanes. Mobility or Angelic Scripts? Have your angels protect your realm, or go on the full offensive to penetrate your enemies kingdom? Execute your scripts now, burn them for precious power, or save them to use with other scripts to pull off powerful combinations? Many of these tactical decisions await you as you control the most powerful beings in the universe of Regnum Angelica!
