The Very First Ars Victor Limited Edition!

Late last month, I received the very first copy of the production run! To celebrate, Aly and I sat down, cracked the box, and punched the pieces. She then proceeded to kick my ass at my very first game on my very first copy of Ars Victor. Yes, she is that ruthless.

We had one minor issue with the box top. It was only a minor alignment issue -- due to a small variation in the box size -- but it was important to me to get it right. The reprinted component should be finished this week; then Ars Victor gets on a boat!

Make sure you're on our email list, and you'll get the announcement when we start to ship.

In-Depth Ars Victor Mechanics on the League of Gamemakers

I wrote up a little post on the League of Gamemakers that talks about the Glory Track in Ars Victor, and some of the interesting strategic consequences:

You want to keep your enemy off the points. One of the most effective ways of doing that is by putting your units in the way. There’s even a special ability (Standfast) that lets some units hold ground at the cost of extra damage. 
When you’re considering throwing your cannon-fodder Conscripts in front of that rampaging Assault Infantry, how do you know if it’s worth it?
