Spiel 2013 Preview: Days of Honor

Posted by James (admin) on 28th August 2013

Days of Honour gameDays of Honor (Czas Honoru) is an asymmetric,  2-player card game set in WWII.  Players are the Polish and Germans who are trying to recover pieces of V2 rockets that have been tested.  This is based on real historical events when the Polish managed to find pieces and send them to Britain which gave them valuable information about this new weapon.

The game is played over 4 rounds.  At the start of each round, players draw 5 more cards and they then continue to take turns until both players pass in succession.  The player with the most rocket fragments at the end is the winner (unless one player has a unit in the enemy’s home zone and there is no opposing unit there – which means they win regardless of rocket fragments).

On a player’s turn, they get to either play a card from their hand into their Home zone, or they can activate a card already on the table (usually exhausting it for the current round), or they can play an action card.  Some cards are units which can move around the 3 zones as well as attack and perform other actions; and other cards are special actions and events.  As well as their action each turn, players can also play some cards with immediate effects too.
