Omen: A Reign of War
You could be the greatest warlord the isles have ever seen. Your thirst for power is matched only by your strategic wit and cunning. You know no rival, aside from your brother.
As sons of Zeus, you stand poised to conquer all of Greece, but not without the blessing of the gods. To determine who shall rule the domain of man, the gods have devised a contest and lent their most powerful forces for the cause: pillage and raze three cities. When the carnage ends, only one brother will be victorious, while the other will fade into antiquity as just another half-god spawn of Zeus.
To compete in this contest, players will take on the role of one of these two brothers with access to a powerful array of units including soldiers, beasts, and oracles; each with various uses. Soldiers are powerful, and affect the city they are played in Beasts are easily double the strength of the average soldier, but occupy two slots in the player's available army, and may be discarded to access powerful special abilities. The oracles offer passive boons to the player, but leave a lot to be desired in strength.
Omen: A Reign of War is a two-player card game by Small Box Games and features two distinct game modes: standard and draft. The standard game has players drawing cards from a collective deck, and accessing cards from a collective discard pile. The draft game allows players access to their favorite units, with each player drafting his own deck to play the game with.
While this game is a card game, it includes non-card components and is not a part of the Small Box Games Pure Card Line.
The Second Edition of Omen: A Reign of War, released in 2012, combines all of the content from the first edition base game and all of the content from the Shattered Aegis expansion, and also introduces 10 new units not found in the first edition base game or the Shattered Aegis expansion.
