Can you withstand the blows of your aggressors? Can you tear down their walls, and bring their city to ruin? They fired the first shot.
THIS MEANS WAR!
Take on the role of Grafmarshall as you lead your city to victory! Featuring lush illustrations by Panagiotis Vlamis, This Means War! blends modern warfare imagery with 1950's American military propaganda.
This Means War! comes with 138 high detailed, poker sized cards, 16 custom dice and 140 tokens. Made for 2-4 players to play and enjoy.
Strategy comes into play by knowing when to strike and where to hit. Victory comes when none remains to stand against you. Act wisely-your city depends on you to survive!
The four types of resources - Ammo, Army, Labor and Research - fuel your Orders. Gather resources each turn, and choose between biding your time and reserving your resources, or launching a continual onslaught to wear down your opponents. As you gather your resources and scope out your enemy, use strategy and wits to either conquer the battlefield or barricade yourself against your foes.
Operation cards are your primary way to victory, allowing you to outright attack the enemy, disrupt their resources, rebuild your own fortifications, or boost your resources further. Espionage cards allow you to sabotage your opponent on their turn, disrupting their Orders. Each turn, you may choose between playing or recycling a card. In an act of desperation, a player can mulligan their entire hand and start anew, with a slight disadvantage.
Matthew Zerbe is the game's creator. Stuck out in Afghanistan for close to 10 years he started to get a little stir crazy. You know we need a game that passes the time and is fun to play. So he started working on and developing THIS MEANS WAR! After kidnapping a few troops and civilians, forcing them to play the game day after day, it slowly developed into the game you see before you today. Matt loves card games like Magic the Gathering and role-playing games like Dungeons and Dragons and Shadowrun.
Brittany Hostetler is an avid fantasy fanatic, who enjoys dabbling in sci-fi and modern comics on occasion. Her skill in nitpicking details was what helped polish the game to the state it is now. She was lucky enough to be able to join This Means War! on the ground floor, and is looking forward to helping bring to life this game and possible future expansions.
Panagiotis Vlamis is the graphic designer/illustrator of the THIS MEANS WAR! game. He 's working as a freelancer doing illustrations, book covers and game graphics but also has some comic book projects running. You can take a look at his work here.
