Limbo: Eternal War is a two-player tactical skirmish game with army and deck construction elements. Each game of Limbo represents a small skirmish in the greater war. Secure the objectives and score victory points to win the day.
Each player in Limbo: Eternal War commands a force of characters they´ll use to destroy their enemies and achieve objectives. Before the game, players must choose which characters will fight for them in the coming battle.
Each game of Limbo: Eternal War takes place over a series of rounds, which are further divided into three phases: Preparation Phase, Activation Phase and Objectives Phase.
The activation phase is the main part of Limbo: Eternal War and where most of the action happens. In the activation phase players activate their units giving each of them two actions. Actions can be moving, attacking, sidestepping, using a skill (like Focus, Guard, Fly), interact or execute an active ability action.
If a player’s Lord has fallen, that player is eliminated from the game. If a player is the only one remaining in the game, he or she wins. If either player has reached 50 VP, the player with the highest total VP wins the game.
