War is a "fast moving" and challenging card game based upon "mixed" rules from the popular board game Stratego and the popular card game War. The game allows you to re-fight major wars of History (Roman Civil War, WW2 East Front, American War for Independence etc).
You select the army of one of the two sides involved in the Historical conflict, review your army's cards/values and when ready - go to war. The game itself is comprised of 50 individual "hands" of play. YOU must select which of your unit cards that you wish to play for each hand. Each unit card has a specific value assigned to it. The computer AI will then submit a unit card to do battle. Which ever side has the highest value card is the hand winner and the loser's card value points are added to the winner's side. This process is repeated for 50 hands with the side having the highest total point value at the end being declared the winner.
Based upon the appropriate side of the conflict that you choose - your entire army cards are displayed (including how many of this type of card you have) on the game board screen. You can also preview and learn your army's cards prior to starting a game.
Both sides start out with identical valued cards. The challenge is to "win the game" by defeating your opponent by scoring more points than the computer AI by the end of the game. This will require a mix of "smart playing", anticipating which cards your opponent has played and still has left to play and some "old fashioned" luck.
Yes you can chose to play a single battle, short campaign (best 2 out of 3), medium campaign (best 3 out of 5) or long campaign (best 4 out of 7). If you win a campaign you will be rewarded with a Bronze, Silver or Gold medal respectively.
To keep the game "interesting" there are two 'special card types" that both sides have - they are the "Artillery card" or "A" card and the "Engineer card" or "E" card. The "A" card can defeat ANY other valued card (including the General). The "A" card can only be defeated by an opposing "E" card. When this happens the winner gets a bonus of "50" points added to their score. So if you are behind in points and manage to defeat the enemy's Artillery card - the 50 points can put you in the lead. Even though the Engineer card can defeat the Artillery card - the Engineer card itself can be defeated by any other card value. So as you can see another challenge is how you play your Engineer cards.
No, the computer AI cards are randomly drawn from it's remaining available army each hand of play.
