Stormbound Kingdom Wars Review

Stormbound is a strategic battle game combining Chess and Clash Of Clans gameplay. You build an army by earning cards for different units, defences and abilities. These have to be carefully chosen to do well in the battles and steadily improve as you play more games and earn new cards.

The game itself has a four-by-four grid into which you play these cards. This ads a geographical element to the strategy. You need to consider not only which units to play by how they will interact with the other units near them on the board. The aim of the game is to get your units to the other end of the board to damage the enemies towers.

The game proceeds in turns, with each player having a limited amount of time to choose which cards to play. This is then played out on the board. You can only lay certain cards because of a limit amount of manna required to play more powerful units. You can also only lay cards behind your front-most troops, which again adds a further geographical strategy to the game.

While you can have fun with this game on a basic level to begin with, the layered and deep strategy make it good for older players. In a family it's also a nice way in to get children playing Chess, or a good game for Chess lovers to play on screens.
