1/7/20 – Valiant Wars Kickstarter

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – January 7, 2020 – Strange Machine Games is excited to bring their latest title, Valiant Wars, to Kickstarter! 

Rebellion rages; mercenaries and tyrants have overrun the lands of Valiance! As one of the few Lords of remaining after the collapse, it is your duty to re-establish order. In this aggressive, press-your-luck deck-builder, you’ll fight to capture the most land of the once-great kingdom. Bring the most powerful army to the battlefield, build your riches and hire the best Champions to defend your cause!

Your rivals will resort to trickery and sabotage in their attempts to bring down your forces. Be warned! As you assemble larger armies and conquer more territory, you’ll be haunted by dark visions of a world in ruins; should too many of these Dark Omens visit upon you, withdrawal becomes necessary! Step up and claim the Valiant throne!

Valiant Wars is a deck-building card game for 2 – 5 players ages 12 and up. It takes about 30 minutes to play.

“The game is fun. If you want a game like Mystic Vale, but you want it to be quicker, a little more aggressive and lighter…then this is the game for you” – Michael Wright, Unfiltered Game
