DESCRIPTION

Havoc: the 100 Years War is a card game for 2-6 players themed on the medieval Hundred Years' War. Havoc is a clever, short card game that allows players to attempt to win battles during the Hundred Years' War. Players will recruit soldiers to form sets which they use in battle to win victory points. The Dogs of War are used to retrieve soldiers from the battlefield or to draw extra resources. After 8 skirmishes a final battle ends the game and crowns a new king based on total victory points.

It is a game that has roots in the game of Poker, as poker hands - albeit on a different scale - are used to determine the winner of battles during the game. The game allows bluffing and planning ahead with some luck but much strategy in planning ahead. One can surprise their opponents with a killer hand that they've built up or attempt to spread their cards out over the many battles.

Havoc allows players to enjoy many of the aspects of Poker without the gambling and high luck, and players can carefully watch their opponents for clues in the cards that they play. Havoc scales well from two to six players and takes only about an hour to play.
