The world of BattleLore meshes history and fantasy together -- putting players in command of a vast array of miniature troops on the battlefields of a Medieval Europe Uchronia at the outset of the Hundred Years War.
BANG! Gold Rush is an expansion for the card game BANG! that can be used with the base game alone or mixed with other expansions.
In addition to featuring eight new characters, BANG! Gold Rush adds two new mechanisms to game play.
You and up to three friends assume the roles of the leaders of the elite, international organization known as XCOM. It is your job to defend humanity, quell the rising panic, and turn back the alien invasion.
Set in the not-so-distant future, battles are now fought by machines of destruction. Human commanders still lead these mechanized troops, but these commanders each have special powers and abilities.
Although much has been added, the basic flavor of the game is still Risk.
