BattleLore: For Troll and Country Announced

BattleLoreForTrollAndCountry.jpgIt seems that the design heads at Days Of Wonder have unanimously decided at a company picnic to make their approachable wargame systems even more approachable. Last week we reported that the WWII tactical wargame system Memoir '44 was to shift its release to include new preprinted battlemaps, where setup is as easy as matching the required figure to a preprinted symbol on the map. Piece o Pie. And now BatteLore will receive a similar ease-of-setup mechanic with new BattleLore Epic Adventure Map, the first of which being the new BattleLore: For Troll and Country [Funagain] expansion slated for release October.

Aside from its streamline setup, Troll and Country will include 2 scenarios, and a new troll figure who plays the starring role in both. The map itself is also quite large, weighing in at 47x34 inches, which should be large enough for the required elbow room of the intended audience of 2-6 players.

Check the official Days of Wonder website for more info For Troll and Country. Here are the official details:

"For Troll and Country is the first release of the Epic Adventure Map series for BattleLore. It includes a large scale Epic map featuring two Epic Adventures -- For Troll and Country and Troll Bridge. The paper map is 47 x 34 inches (120 x 87 cm) and comes ready to play with terrain, obstacles and unit positions pre-printed. Players can just place their BattleLore units and start their adventure. This volume also features the new Troll Creature figure, perfect to use with these or other adventures.
