The Command and Objectives cards provide players with optional cards that enhance or change their gaming experience.
Command cards have come a long way since we first sat down to do Version 4 and we’re glad to be finally able to show off some of the Command cards. Command Cards allowed us to take some of the more complex rules that are not easily covered in an army book and put them onto cards so that they are easily referenced during games. Players can choose how to use Command Cards in their games. For example each player can have a set amount of points dedicated to Command Cards, or players can add Command Cards directly to their lists spending points as normal.
Most Command cards are hidden until they are used so you’re never quite sure what your opponent’s battle plans are until they are revealed. While hidden Command cards do not affect their attached unit, a player must reveal them if they wish to gain the cards benefits. Some Command cards must be revealed at the start of the game, these cards are used to build your army and have the keyword Build.
