Matrix Campaigns

Recommended Posts

I stole this idea mercilessly from the new 40k rule book but I think the idea has been around for a while. This concept works well for a two player campaign.  You can use a map but there is no moving of armies around the lands, it's just a way to keep score, in effect the map is an abstract idea. 

This is very much a first pass at the concept so I welcome your ideas. Also let me know if the table doesnt completely show up, might not be mobile device friendly.  I think that if I put some more thought into it I could set first player and also the objective cards based on player strategy choice. This could easily work for more than two players as well, again just use a map to keep score, no moving of armies around the lands.

Set the campaign points, maybe 5 for a short campaign, or map sections start at 5 each for short campaign.

1/ One player is Warlord A and the other is Warlord B

2/ Each payer decides on a strategy for the battle and then checks the matrix. 

3/ First player is lowest points and gets to choose the objective.

4/ Depending on your strategy selection the deployment area is selected for you

5/ Win then score a campaign point/take a map section off the other player.
