Unofficial Demo Rules

by Cooper Cazedessus

Premise:

The main idea is to give new diskwarriors a taste of the DiskWars game mechanics, without getting into some of the more complicated creature disks and spell disks, yet still showing that different armies ARE different. All of this is to be done in under a 1/2 hours time; thereby increasing demo rotation and preventing any possible chance of player burnout.

 

Means:

The following disks are set up on the Staging Area in an inverse triangle (3 warriors in front, then 2 archers, backed by 1 rider and 1 rider in the Reinforcement Stack) 18" from a Center Land disk. Standard Doom Hill Scenario rules apply with a 15 point kill. Basic movement, archer fire and combat resolution are covered before the demo game begins.

Lathari Elves

vs.

Orcs of the Broken Plain
3 x Deepwood Warrior (3, 3, 3, 3, 4)   3 x Grugs (3 ,3, 3 ,3, 3)
2 x Deepwood Archers (3, 2, 2, 2, 5)   2 x Urkan Bowmen (3, 2, 4, 3, 6)
2 x Windrider (6F, 5, 3, 3, 9)   2 x Beastrider (5, 5, 4, 5, 10)

and / or

Acolytes of Timorran

vs.

Farrenghast's Undead
3 x Men of The Sword (3, 3, 3, 3, 4)   3 x Undead Hord (3, 2, 4, 3, 4)
2 x Sunderland Archers (3, 2, 2, 2, 5)   2 x Ghastly Bowmen (4, 2, 2, 2, 4)
2 x Carpet Riders (6F, 5, 2, 5, 9)   2 x Undead Riders (5, 5, 2, 5, 7)

End Result:

After participating in this Demo, new players should have an understanding of the basic mechanics of DiskWars. They are now prepared to build their own army . . . Do You DiskWar?

 

Onchore:

Its always a good idea to have some spare Army Stacks around, so folks who are totally intrested in learning more about the game can continue to game.
