Welcome to the PledgeManager for Valiant Wars!
If you missed our campaign, don't dismay! Just choose an option below.

The Kingdom of Valiance has collapsed. The Valiant Throne sits empty. Rebels, mercenaries, and tyrants have overrun the lands of this once prosperous kingdom.  As one of the few remaining Lords, it is your duty to curb the chaos and establish order.
 

Valiant Wars is a competitive press-your-luck deck-builder, where you must fight to capture lands of the once-great kingdom. Your rivals will resort to trickery and sabotage in their attempts to bring down your forces. Be warned! As you assemble larger armies and conquer more territory, you’ll be haunted by dark visions of a world in ruins; too many of these Dark Omens and withdrawal becomes necessary. Step up and claim the Valiant throne!

Valiant Wars is fast and furious, with no two games alike. How far are you willing to press the boundaries of fate?

Setup for Valiant Wars is simple. Place the Soldier, Gold and Dark Omen decks face up in the middle of the play area. Shuffle the Location and Champion decks, and place the top 5 Champions in a row.

In Valiant Wars, each player will begin with identical starting decks made of 5 Gold to recruit new Champions, 2 Soldiers to fight battles, and 3 of the feared Dark Omens.

 

Example of a typical game with 4 players

 

Playing a Round

In each round, players will be competing for new lands that will earn them Victory Points. Every turn, players will simultaneously expose cards in their deck, one by one, until each player decides to call it quits. Players can decide to stop on any turn and collect their drawn gold, using it to recruit new champions. If a player decides to press their luck and draws more than one Dark Omen card, they are out for the remainder of that round, losing both gold and sword.

The player with the strongest army wins the battle and claims the Location (worth Victory Points) for themselves. Winning, however, comes at a cost. Locations will require you to divert strength from your armies to remain under your control. Ultimate victory is determined by the first player to claim Locations. Depending on the number of players, winning requires 8-10 Victory Points.

“The game is fun. If you want a game like Mystic Vale, but you want it to be quicker, a little more aggressive and lighter…then this is the game for you.”

– Michael Wright, Unfiltered Gamer

"Very interesting game, I thought I'd seen every deck-building game and format. It takes the core deck building game principle...but adding push your luck element is a very interesting thing."

- Nick Meenachan, Board Game Brawl
