Warriors of Jogu: Feint Kickstarter Spotlight

In Warriors of Jogu, you and another player each take control of a faction and try to outmaneuver each other by sending troops to the correct battle locations. However, you know one of the battle locations, and your opponent knows the other. Can you deduce the identity of your opponent’s battle location, while concealing your battle location from him?

The game is played in a series of rounds. In each round, players draw up to a hand of seven cards, and look at their current battle location. Then, they take turns playing one unit at a time to a location. Once both players have passed, the location cards are revealed, and the strategy rating is tallied to determine the winner (only units at battle locations count towards the rating!).

A standard game lasts seven rounds, but not all games go the full length. Every time a player loses a round, he also loses morale for each card he played. If a player over-commits in a round and loses, he will lose a bunch of morale (this is a reason to conserve cards if you think you will lose a round). Once a player’s morale reaches zero, the game ends immediately and his opponent wins!

The game is simple but plays more than the sum of its parts. It’s an interactive game of deduction, deception, and tactics. Choose from five available factions in the Warriors of Jogu core set, each with a characteristic playstyle that blends elements of bluffing and timing to its favor in unique ways, and lead them to victory by applying the art of deception.

“All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; When using our forces, we must appear inactive; When we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; When far away, we must make him believe we are near.” -Sun Tzu, Art of War
