Batt’l Kha’os - Board Game Box Shot

Batt’l Kha’os

16

Battle rages on between orcs and knights. Purple and Orange form a chaotic melee and no-one knows which side will win this battle. Mage towers scattered on the battlefield are strategic objectives, and it soon appears that whomever controls the most towers will sow the seeds of victory.

Players place tiles to form majorities of their army on the corners of towers: when all 4 corners are resolved, the player with the majority of corners seizes control of the tower.

Special power tokens can increase your presence or decrease your opponent's presence as well as doing a few other things.

There are 5 special tiles included in the game for added strategies.

“Decent head-to-head tile laying game”

I received this game in a trade. I was surprised that I enjoyed it, but overall, it’s not an amazing game. It’s solid, but didn’t really excite me.

On each turn you place a tile from your hand or a tower tile.

Tiles typically have orcs or humans in the corners. Once all four corners are completed, you tally up to see who has the most units. For example, if 2 of the corners have 4 Orcs and the other 2 have 2 humans, the orcs win. Therefore, the orcs place a flag. Once all four corners are determined around a tower, you see who wins the tower, with ties going to the color of the tower.

The other twist is that every player has 5 special, one-time-use tiles that modify the other tiles. For example, one gives you +2 units of your type.

The first player to win a certain number of points worth of towers wins. Success usually goes to the player who times the placement of his special tiles the best.

The game also comes with advanced variants, where you can play with 5 other, more complicated special tiles. There are also special tiles in addition to that to change the game further. There’s quite a bit of variety and the game plays in about 10-20 minutes.

If you enjoy tile laying, abstracts, and a battle theme, and can get this cheaply, consider it. Otherwise, I don’t think it’ll knock your socks off.
