Deployment Overview Edit


Card back

Deployment cards are chosen during setup and determine both where players can place their armies during the Deploy Units step of setup and how much terrain is placed during the Place Terrain step of setup.
  • The player who chose the deployment card selects which color of deployment areas he will use for the game, and his opponent uses the deployment areas of the other color.
  • The deployment card indicates the amount of defensive terrain and dangerous terrain that is used for the game.
