This War of Mine: The Board Game – Tales from the Ruined City

This War of Mine: The Board Game – Tales from the Ruined City

War knows no end. Its victims are counted in thousands and each day we lose hope, little by little. Food is becoming scarce and our shelter is falling apart — yet we keep struggling.

New faces can be seen around the city: the friendly ones at the makeshift market or in neighboring houses, the hostile ones in the night with blinding flashlights and clubs and knives. We seek new paths to travel through the ruins — sometimes even underground — just to avoid sniper fire and loot anything of value. It’s never much, yet we keep struggling. We have no other choice.

Tales from the Ruined City is the first expansion for This War of Mine: The Board Game, a story-rich game of survival in a war-torn city.

DESCRIPTION

We used to wonder where war lived, what it was that made it so vile. And now we realize that we know where it lives… inside ourselves.

– Albert Camus

This article focuses on the Farmers – the module about people from the countryside who travel to besieged Pogoren hoping for a better life. Their homesteads have been ravaged by war, families killed or hurt by soldiers, houses burnt… Some of them are here to trade, some to loot, but they will certainly change the situation in the city.
In the base game of This War of Mine: The Board Game, you could find 2 basic Scenarios called The Last Day and Endless Night. They enabled you to play a short, one-playthrough campaign, enriched with a number of special rules and winning conditions. In  Tales from the Ruined City, we decided to take your gameplay to a wholly different level, with much more complex Scenarios that utilize a number of special rules, dedicated cards and tokens.
Within the labyrinthine bowels of the besieged city made up of concrete basements, old town, forgotten cellars and modern sewers, you will find a path straight to the centre; the path offering you protection from omnipresent sharpshooters and marauding soldiers above, yet dangerous enough not to be treaded lightly.
