    This is a great game. The game is an excellent multiplayer experience that I have played and seen played at Consimworld Expo many times. It's easy enough for anyone to play, even non-gamers, yet interesting enough for grogs to remain engaged especially with the right game group! Every time I've seen it played the people playing it are having a fantastic time. It's not a simulation, it doesn't mock the views portrayed in the game nor overtly press or support them, it's simply a game about the subject done in a way that makes for a crazy, wild, wheeling multiplayer experience where sometimes anything can and does happen. I highly, highly recommend you consider this game. I've seen it come through the development process and it is truly a fun game. Where else can you turn the seas to blood and sink your entire opponents fleet before they can invade?? Priceless.

    Kerry Anderson, the designer, hosted evening tournament play of Battle of Armageddon. Needless to say, there was a lot of hooting and hollering taking place in the area where the game was being played. Everyone had a blast playing the game, and when Kerry provided an after-action report of game play to our attendees, they all enjoyed learning about the game very much. This one looks to be a winner and I hope it hits the P500 mark soon!

    No credible biblical scholar describes "how closely these prophecies correlate to modern times." The book of Revelation was written for people in the time it was created, about 100 AD. It is about the Roman Empire and those times. The only people using Revelation as a blueprint for current events are hucksters, frauds, or incompetents. (This preliminary rating is for the description of the game). For the pastor, please think twice before using words like foolish. "Biblical scholars" were words from the game description, not my words. Also I made it clear the rating was only for the game description. There ARE other things that matter.

    As a pastor, I had to say something. I find the previous review talking about "biblical scholar(s)" to be foolish. It's about rating a GAME, not a theological perspective. I probably don't agree with all the decisions made in the design process, but that's really not the issue or shouldn't be. This is a "what if" scenario and should be reviewed on THAT basis, not on a theological basis. Is it a good game? That's the only thing that matters.

    I have the limited edition of Kerry's game. It is an easy, fun, and very unpredictable game. Easy to learn but not so easy to win. I enjoyed playing it greatly!!

    REVELATION 16

     

    12The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East... 

     

    16Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

                                                               

    The Bible contains prophecies about the final days, describing how the armies of the World will fight the final battle and that without divine intervention, no life shall be saved (Matthew 24: 22).  Biblical scholars have described how closely these prophecies correlate to our modern times and put forward scenarios for this climactic battle.

    The Battle of Armageddon is a 2 to 6 player game dealing with this final battle.  The game brings together the forces of Israel, America, Europe, China, Russia, and the Arab world into the ultimate battle for control of the Earth.  Players assume the roles of the leaders of these nations.  Biblical names have been used to capture some of the mystery of the setting.

    Four Battle Games allow 2 or 3 players to play an hour-long game, each covering a chapter of this epic struggle: the Arab Israeli war,  Magog Attacks, the West Invades, and the Kings of the East.

    A Campaign Game is provided that links all phases into a single, apocalyptic conflict, which can be played by 2 to 6 players in 2 to 4 hours.
