DUX BRITANNARIUM GAME DECK COMPOSITION

Post by Velcro10w » Tue Aug 23, 2016 1:56 pm

I purchased both the main rule set and 'The Raiders' eighteen months ago and I have played these Dark Age rules about five times and have thoroughly enjoyed them and have plans to undertake a campaign of Saxon invasion very shortly.

Having sleeved the cards that came with each rule set, I thought nothing of the ones marked; A, B, C and Blank, British and Saxon Missiles and British and Saxon Units One and Two, a total of ten additional cards if my maths is correct!

I had a quick look through other posts on the game deck and it seems this question has been raised a couple of years ago but I would like some further clarification as to how these ten cards are used and whether they are always added or not?

I would also assume that the British and Saxon Leaders Three and Four cards simply allow a larger warband to be fielded using more leader types to enable more flexibility for a larger warband to take the field? I hope I have phrased my queries succinctly.

I look forward too receiving your reply when convenient.

Thanks.


Paul.

They're there because the manufacturers sell packs in defined sizes. There's no use for them at all in games using the rules as written.

Morning, Derek.

Thank you for your reply. I couldn't find any reference to them although they may be useful for random events - A, B and C - plus additional larger warbands as I mention in my post.

I'll let my fellow players know.

Thanks.


Paul.
