Lizard Army

Lizard Army is a game based on an idea by a 6-year old game designer!  My colleague'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.

The Game

Lizard Army is a *cooperative* strategy wargame.  The Lizard Realms are under attack!  Can you and your fellow Lizard Generals raise an army, fend off the Bug Army invaders, and re-claim the stolen Crystal Shards?  Rebuild 4 Crystal Patterns to win, but if the bugs build too many nests, you lose!

Game Play

  • A shared pool of 12 custom dice creates interesting decisions on every turn. What actions will I take now, and what options will I save for my teammates?

  • Fill Battalion tokens with Platoon minis for a satisfying, tactile experience of your army.

 

  • Choose to Recruit, Move or Fight. Or turn dice into Runes that let you save actions for later.

 

  • Deterministic combat means strategy, not luck, is key.

 

  • Any player may reroll the dice pool on their turn, but doing so will let the bugs attack, multiply, and build nests.

 

  • Lizard/Bug powers are based on real life defense mechanisms.
