Lizard Army is a game based on an idea by a 6-year old game designer! My boss's son, Henry, came up with the idea of mighty Generals training an army of lizards based on each species' real life natural defenses and abilities. Henry was looking for a partner with game design experience, and I loved the idea so much I was thrilled to partner with him on this project. Henry has not just been an idea man. He has been integrally involved in suggesting new mechanics and playtesting as we develop this game.
In Lizard Army, you are a mighty Lizard General. The game plays in two phases. In Phase 1 (worker placement/hand management), send your workers around the land finding and training lizards with the most interesting and powerful skills, based on real-life lizards and their natural defenses. Train the Chameleon to be a camouflaged super-spy; take advantage of the Gila Monster's toxic and tenacious bite; use the territorial Tegu Lizard to hold your enemies at bay; and the enormous Komodo dragon is a tank of the animal kingdom!
But be sure you've raised a strong enough army in time. When the fabled Lizard Master returns to his volcanic stronghold, the Final Battle will begin and your lizards will be put to the test! Phase 2 is a fast, light-weight trick-taking game to see who will become the new Lizard Emperor, and bring peace to the Lizard Realms!
