That's what I'd like to know, I've never heard of this before but I like my board games and card games on iOS.

It plays similar to Small World, which is itself a take on the Risk type of boardgame, but streamlined and with variable powers and abilities from the different races and attributes.

Now this game isn't fantasy based, so there are no elves or anything like that, but you choose a different nation each turn, and they each have their own strengths and weaknesses, and give you a different number of armies to play with.

But the basic flow of the game is as follows

-Choose nation
-Choose event card
-Place armies, trying to take over the various continents (each "epoch" of the game gives them a different value, from 0 to 3, and there are 6 epochs, which is a game turn, in a game)
-Fight as required by rolling dice, following various rules relating to how many each side gets and how much higher you have to roll to win
-Get gold for the continents you own (1 army gives you that continent's value, 2 gives you double, and three, with no other players armies in that continent gives you triple)

At the end of 6 epochs, the player with the most gold wins.

Thanks for the video. The narrator seems to sometimes forget to pause between sentences. Regardless videos are always helpful and welcome.
