We LOVE trading card games, but HATE the hassle and money grabs most other guys put us through just to get their games to the table. Therefore, before we go into all the things that really set Battle for Sularia: The Card Game apart in terms of game play, we wanted to address the Top 3 Reasons we think Battle for Sularia: The Card Game will be your next and quite possibly last trading card game you'll want to play...even before you play your first game!
—Please note: The Deluxe Edition is only available on the Punch-It Entertainment website.
The original Battle for Sularia: The Battle Begins (TBB) starter set and Blood, Profit, and Glory: Command Pack (BPG) expansion.
You are a Battle Commander, chosen by your faction to aid in securing it's dominance on the post-apocalyptic world of Sularia. While the world has begun to heal, time and resources are in short supply and in high demand. It's up to you to gain the influence necessary to increase your control over your domain; to establish new regions that are rich in Sularium, the most powerful known energy source on the planet; and to marshal your forces against any and all threats who challenge your command.
It's all about survival. When the time comes to fight, as a Battle Commander, you will need to control the battlefield through ongoing strategic conditions and superior use of surprise tactics. Your ability to issue the right command at the right time will ensure that your combatants will not only successfully defend your sites, but to also successfully attack your opponent's sites. Ultimately, to win the battle!
Each turn you will gain influence to establish sites on the battlefield. These sites will provide you Sularium, the resource necessary to power your engines of war, as well as the defense points for your forces to defend you. And lastly, you will lead your forces to attack your opponent's sites with the goal to inflict severe damage to their territories and supply chains—ultimately, acquiring victory through a mortal blow to the opposing Battle Commander.
