This is a new game, that was invented by one of the third/fourth grade teachers at my synangauge. I saw it, and thought hmmm, Legos.
It's mostly based on stratego. Of course, the teacher used it to teach about exodus. I decided it was cool, but was to organized for real Brikwars. So I made it into a intrigue style game.
Six kinds of players.
1) head of intelligence: outranks everyone, is one of two who knows what the prize is, and can take it.
2) best spy/intelligence officer: second person who can retrieve the prize, can rescue prisoners, can heal wounded.
3) medic: can heal wounded
4) couriers: carry the prize, can rescue prisoners.
5) assassins: can wound enemies, and rescue prisoners.
6) novice spies: used as sacrifices to get information on enemy ranks.
These are ranked highest to lowest( obviously)
Price picking will probably be by CP, except only one rank 1/2 and maybe 2 rank3s.
Set up like stratego, find some way to hide the minifigs. Field can be however, except that each team must have a prison.
Players take turn moving pieces. Like stratego, if one piece attacks another, the lower rank loses. In this however, the losing piece is sent to prison, and can be rescued.
Rank 1 beats everyone attacking, can only lose to an attacking rank1.
Rank 5 can only imprison rank 5s/6s. They can wound all ranks except rank 1s however. When a piece is wounded, it cannot move. It is stuck in place, until a medic rescues it.
Rank ties solved by dice role.
Here the game can be applied to storylines. Maybe the Assyrians want some Immortal battle plans the prize can be anything.
Only ranks 1/2 may claim the prize. They must attack a courier, and interrogate them. Both players role a Dice. If the attacker wins, the defender will reveal whether or not that courier had the prize. If they had it, the attacker wins. If the attacker loses the role, then nothing happens.
This game was originally played with the students as the game pieces, so movement is up for debate.
Let me know what you think. I'll try and answer questions.
Didn't know of this was the right forum, but it is played with bricks, and can be applied to Brikwars, so I figured it was more than a lesser game.
