Bellum Magica is a new board game from Blue Orange Games designed by Frédéric Guérard (It’s a Wonderful World, Meeple Land)

Each player represents an evil lord. Recruit creatures, ranging from simple goblins to terrifying dragons, and assign them a task in your kingdom: some will go to gather resources and explore the surroundings, while others will join your army to attack the human kingdom and other players.

Collect chests full of treasures and become the richest and most powerful evil lord of all time!

But how to do it?

  • Choose an active horde: The Captain rolls the dice to define which horde will work today (with the possibility to make the Captain to roll again with one barrel resource).
  • Gather resources: Gather units of food at the level of your active horde capacity.
  • Call back scouts: Your treasure cards could make you win immediately Metal or Wooden chest!
  • Attack! Following the turn order (starting with the Captain in clockwise), each player can carry out one attack by choosing between attack the human kingdom or attack another player’s castle. (number of shield vs the number of swords)
  • Recruit creatures to end the turn: Each player can recruit creatures by spending their food and symbols, recruit to have more resources and more chests!

The first player with 10 or more chests ends the game and the player with the more values in those chests wins Bellum Magica!

    Competitive engine builder/resource management game from Blue Orange games. This game is a relatively simple family game which is quick to teach, set up and tear down. Gameplay can be a little clunky if people have collected too many barrels/confusion tokens and are generating a lot of rerolls, but I was playing with small children and there was a bit more back and forth threats and revenge plans than you may get with adult players. Components are good quality and the box insert is fantastic! A lot of direct competition and random elements serve to make a very enjoyable and chaotic family/warm up game. I would highly recommend buying some extra dice as the action rolling/drafting in the beginning can become very confusing with only a single dice, especially if the kids keep forgetting what number they rolled!
