Prepare yourself for the battle of the ages, be you the Defender or the Invader, the struggle will be epic and the story will be glorious.
Valley Games is proud to announce the reprinting of STRONGHOLD, this wonderful title is now sold out and will be rereleased in Q4 of 2010. We will then have the games available through all major distribution in North America.
We have been working with a number of people to rework the rules into 2 separate handbooks, one for the Defender and one for the Invaders. The artwork will remain the same so those of you with the first edition will be able to download the newest rules when they are complete.
Stronghold is a 2-4 player game telling the story of a siege. Players take opposite sides, one has to defend the stronghold, the other has to break into the castle as soon as possible. As time passes, defenders get Victory Points every turn for their efforts on the walls.
The game board represents the stronghold itself as well as the surrounding terrain, where enemy forces are placed and from where they proceed to the walls.
The defender has a small amount of soldiers manning the walls, while the invader has an infinite legion of them! A desperate fight is taking place every single turn. The invaders build war machines, equip their soldiers, train them and use black magic rituals to achieve victory. Meanwhile, defenders repair walls, build cannons, train soldiers and do everything they can to hold the castle as long as possible.
