Bretwalda is a game for 1-4 players that plays in around 2 1/2 hours. Each player takes charge of one of the kingdoms of medieval England, including Northumbria, Mercia, Wessex and East Anglea, and each of these kingdoms has unique leaders and abilities. The goal is to be crowned the Bretwalda of England and victory will be achieved through a combination of controlling key areas with victory points, completing Chronicle cards in the form of hidden objectives and also focusing on building various buildings such as Abbeys.
Recently, we played a 4-player game with Russ Wetli and Jacob Garis who are writers for the wargame blog Cardboard Conflicts and we all had a blast! Thanks to them for coming down to play and for offering their comments in our preview video.
