1066, Tears to Many Mothers - a card game of War & History
1066, Tears to Many Mothers is an asymmetric, competitive tactical card game in the style of Magic the Gathering, but non-collectable. In other words, you will receive the complete game in the box. This 1-2 player card game, follows the momentous events of that seismic year in English history. Each player, as either Normans or Saxons, musters troops and resources to overcome the various obstacles in their way before their two armies clash on the battlefield at Hastings.
Gorgeous artwork complements sumptuous production values that will appeal to young people and seasoned gamers alike. Character names are taken from the Domesday Book and every card in the game is inspired by a real person or event involved in the Battle of Hastings. With a focus on quick, tactical play and a thematic abstraction of the events of the time, there is no deck building required, each player simply grabs their deck and shuffles and play begins.
1066, Tears to Many Mothers was a runner up in the 2014 Golden Geek Awards, it was even nominated in the Origins Awards 2015 for 'Best Historical Board Game' - and it hasn't even been officially released yet.
