"Renaissance Wars" is inspired by, and plays similarly to "War Of The Roses," ..but on steroids Not surprisingly, the board is a bit more complicated with the addition of a few twists, but the basic rules are still pretty simple.

  • Use the Banners on the left of the board in concert with your mercenaries in the center of the board to attack the Crown and win the game.
  • Collect like Crests on the map for thier standard "in-hand" bonuses, as well as to control the Banners.
  • Banners can never be attacked.
  • "So what's different," you ask?

    Hah! Trick question - Some things are actually simpler - there are no more roses to eliminate - Just take the Crown to win the game.

    Some things make more sense: Mercenaries are no longer 'shared.' You now have your own personal Champion (the head of your mercenaries) - one of the Horsemen located in the center of the board. this permits you to build up your mercenary army count over time. Noone can ever attack your Champion.

    Churosques, Spies and Castles: All of these support you by putting a unit on themselves. Yes, this is not as nice as having an in-hand bonus, However, they offer additional services as follows..

    The Four Religions (the churchy/mosquey icons - we call them "Churosques") compel followers to fight for your cause. Ownership of each Churosque conscripts an additional convert to your Champion on EVERY turn you control that Churosque.

    The Four Spies grant vision to all of the Champions on the board. You want to see who's building up for a sneak-attack, don't you? Each spy can also view the castle and churosque in it's 'land-locked" region.

    The Six Castles house families with royal lineage. They carry much influence over those who defend the crown. The number of Castles you control directly affects the number of troops who are willing to stand aside when you attack the Crown. Each Castle held reduces the crown by 7 units. (Don't worry - it's only reduced for you - not your opponents.)

    Sea-Lanes have -1 Attack dice modifiers, attacking at D5vD6

    Custom First Round Bonuses (used on certain scenarios) temper the advantage that early players often have.
