Designer Reiner Knizia's Battle Line: Medieval Edition is a two-player strategy card game built around the theme of Medieval warfare. Based on Reiner Knizia's original design published in Germany as Shotten-Totten, this edition enhances and expands that game system to give players even more tactical options and gut-wrenching decisions.
In Battle Line: Medieval Edition, you must create powerful formations along your side of the line of battle that are superior to those of your enemy. Victory goes to the player who wins 5 of the 9 battle flags or 3 adjacent flags.
Battle Line: Medieval Edition places you in command of your army's strategies. Will you use your powerful Kings-Guard to vanquish your enemy? Will you send the King of England or France to the front to win a critical flag? Will you rely on your spies to determine the enemy’s strengths and weaknesses before committing your best forces? You'll always have plenty of choices. With every card you play, you'll determine the strength and direction of your attack! Fend off your enemy's advances, and win!
