More info

Dawn of Battle is a hex-and-counter Wargame allowing Players to refight Historical Battles from roughly 1500 BCE to 1500 CE or 3000 years of Combat. Players take the roles of the great Commanders of History, including Xerxes, Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Saladin and William Wallace.

The Game System is straight-forward and action-packed, as Players depend upon the quality of their Army’s Leadership to provide activation points allowing them to maneuver their Armies and strike against the Enemy. The better an Army’s command, the more flexibility it has to move, rally and attack.

Also included are Supplementary Rules that cover free deployment in Scenarios, barbarian charges, command control and impetuousity, elephant panic and random Events.

Each of the 20 included Scenarios indicate the disposition of each Army that engaged at that Historical Battle. Units include a variety of Infantry types (including Hoplites and the Macedonian Phalanx), Cavalry (including Chariots and Mounted Archers), Missile Units (including Slingers, Longbows and even early Gunpowder Weapons) and Special Units such as Elephants and War Wagons.

The Game’s primary engine is comprised of an Action Deck used to determine command, the randomly determined outcomes of actions and melee combat. Additionally, Action Cards provide special effects that Players can use to enhance their Units’ abilities as well as the narrative of the gaming experience. The Action Deck provides a unique means of resolving a Battle in an experience that will never be duplicated.
