Hardcore wargamers often find themselves in battles that last for hours, and are more than happy to take a short break and re-field their armies. In effort to not burn out but stay in the gaming spirit, some folks wanted to make a game to play that would be light but relatable to their ongoing theme. The folks at Sanctioned Chaos have created BattleBones: Fight for Sorroah so that gamers have a quick game to play in between war games, or for just an easy-to-pick-up game to teach others.
The game is used playing custom dice (being produced by popular dice company Q-Workshop), the faces of which represent various components of your army. Players roll dice and place them in a battle formation. Using a rock-paper-scissors method of deduction, dice are knocked off the battlefield. Players use 10 dice each, though there are rules that allow players to have more. Factions have special abilities that make them unique, making each game different, and no two factions the same.
BattleBones also come with Power Dice that not only indicate initiative during gameplay, but also can give your teams bonuses, so the more you have, the better. Two Power Dice are included in the base game but can be purchased separately as add-ons. The game is nearly half funded, and has a little over a month to go. Check out the Kickstarter page for more photos, download the rules, and more details on the game.
