Omen: A Reign of War is a card game for 2 players (that can accommodate up to 3-4 players using a variety of different variants) and plays in around 30 minutes.

The game pits players against each other as rival, half-god sons of Zeus. Using powerful units on loan from the gods of Olympus, the two brothers wage war across ancient Greece to prove who is the most worthy warlord. Through the course of the game, players will acquire coins to use to play a variety of unit cards in hopes of winning wars in the cities and completing feats set forth by the gods.

The second edition combines ALL of the content from the 1st edition base game AND ALL of the content from the Shattered Aegis expansion, and also introduces 4 brand new units along with an updated second edition rulebook. All in a shiny new box that’s large enough to accommodate the entire game (plus future content) sleeved!

Omen is a beautiful game that’s refreshing in how open-ended they leave a great deal of gameplay. If you prefer to draft, draft cards! Or deckbuild, or just shuffle everything together for an easy random draw; any way you like to get cards in a game is a way you can set up this one.

Combat is very straightforward, similar to Smash Up or Small Box’s other game Hemloch; place minions on locations to vie for influence. But the rewards add a temptation to use abilities or horde victory points in an interesting way that has a lot more depth than Smash Up.

The theme is used well, the components in all editions of the game have been quirky and great with some lovely art on the cards.

Doesn’t take too long to play, but the lack of solid multiplayer rules does effectively limit it to a 2-player game if you don’t use house rules.
