This War of Mine: The Board Game is getting its second expansion. Titled Days of the Siege, this second expansion puts together new scenarios, modules, and miniatures for players to enjoy into one neat package.
This War of Mine: The Board Game Brings Survival to TabletopThis War of Mine is a game that's all about surviving war. There are, quite literally, thousands of games where you do this, but This War of Mine is a rare outlier in this space. You see, you don't play as soldiers — you play as the civilians. The video game version has you scrounging for supplies, dodging soldiers and bandits, defending your home, and generally trying to stay alive in a dire situation.,
All of this gameplay has more or less been translated to tabletop in This War of Mine: The Board Game. While it isn't a perfect 1:1 creation, it does manage to come awfully close to capturing the same kind of magic. Things have just gotten better now that the second expansion for this board game has been announced.
Days of the Siege Steps Things UpDays of the Siege will supplement your existing experience with a bunch of new scenarios, modules, and miniatures. Here's what you can expect to see in the box according to the announcement:
- Forlorn Hope, a new story-driven, 3-act war campaign.
- A new board.
- New rules.
- 50+ new tokens.
- New Cards and Locations.
- The "Orphans of War" module, which includes:
- 2 miniatures
- Kid Action cards
- 4 Soldier miniatures for the War campaign.
- Dog miniature and associated card.
