Description

Armello is a board game like fantasy strategy game with animals as your main protagonists. As the king of Armello is slowly getting insane due to a plague called "The Rot", the four races he once united will try to claim the throne for themselves. You will be one of the contestants of the four playable races, with each race providing a male and a female character: wolves, rabbits, rats and bears.

There are four ways to win the game:
  • Kill the king in battle (King Slayer Victory)
  • Heal the king with four Spirit Stones (Spirit Stone Victory)
  • Kill the king with a rot value higher than the kings (Rot Victory)
  • If the king dies from it's illness or when both the king and and eventual attacker die, the player with the most prestige points wins (Prestige Victory)
You will move your character around the hexagonally tiled lands of Armello and accept quests, attack other players / enemies or search dungeons to gain points in one of several categories: attack, body, wits, spirit, gold, magic, prestige and rot. Prestige is worth a closer look, as it is not only necessary for the Prestige Victory, but the player with the highest prestige will also be able to choose from two "King's Declarations" that will affect all players each day.
Additionally at the beginning of your turn you can stock up your card deck (depending on your wits value). The cards may contain equipment, one time bonuses or cards to harm another player's progress (like putting a "Peril" on a field your opponent will likely visit next turn or lower the income of one of his villages). Fights and perils will be decided by rolling dice (where their number depends on your points in the required category), but you may also "burn" some of your cards to get guaranteed results or use / equip them for bonuses.

The game is turn-based, with each player usually having 3 action points to spend. You cannot die permanently in the game, but in addition to being reset to your own clan's territory you will loose prestige and all remaining action points when doing so.

Apart from four short tutorial missions the game does not contain any campaign, but is focused on the board game aspect of the game including multiplayer support.
