The Cousins’ War

New Games from Surprise Stare Games

Surprised Stare Games presents: a new game by David J. Mortimer, illustrated by Klemens Franz

The Cousins’ War

A game for 2 players aged 12+, taking 30 minutes

The Wars of the Roses were fought between the Houses of York and Lancaster for over 3 decades during the 15th century in England. The houses were both branches of the royal family, therefore the Wars were originally known as “The Cousins’ War”. Each player represents one of the houses as they fight battles and gain influence to control England.

During each of a maximum of 5 rounds you’ll play Action cards to increase your influence in the regions of England, or to deploy troops to the current battlefield. At the end of each round you fight a critical battle, and if victorious, you can add military strength to your influence in a region. Each battle is fought using a system inspired by the idea of liar's dice, which gives players the opportunity to bluff and counter-bluff. Play is a combination of strategic actions on the board and tactical decisions in the battles, giving an intense and challenging game.
