The gameplay

  

Both players are sitting in front of each other and choose a side (Allied or German). All the units, all with their own capabilities, are placed next to the battlefield. You build up your army, starting from your side 1 of the 7 roads, so you can reach the end of a road. Did you reach the other side? Perfect, you have conquered this road! Your secret Objective card describes which roads you need to conquer to win the game. In each round you have 4 action points to spend. For example, if you place a unit, it will cost you 1 action point. As soon as opposing units 'touch' each other, a 'clash' takes place and the strongest unit wins. By thinking tactically, thinking ahead and placing your units cleverly, each game will be tense, and the tide can turn in seconds. 

 

Clash of the Ardennes is easy to learn, no need for historical knowledge and is a guaranteed success on a weekend evening, accompanied with a good glass of beer or wine.

Tabletop Gaming Guild  ⭐ 10/10

“Clash of the Ardennes is a phenomenal, abstract, strategy, tile placement and two-player wargame with amazing component quality and art. But the most surprising aspect of the game for me is how it was able to deliver an epic and suspenseful feel to every play. The game produces good tension from having to make meaningful decisions as to which unit tiles to place and on which street and having to react and pivot to the opponents’ tiles placements.” Read the full Instagram post here or watch the video here

Board Game Meeple

“Finally, a war game that doesn’t have rules that send you to sleep! Clash of Ardennes has a rule set designed to get you clashing across the battlefield quickly with both players looking to gain position with clever tile placement and strategic planning. There is plenty of gameplay to be had, it’s fast to learn with a clever spin on the old ‘rock, paper, scissors’ mechanic and all wooden components and artwork are absolutely fantastic!” Read the beautiful Instagram post from Gareth here

The Board game Connaisseur  ⭐/⭐ 4/5
