Quick Look: Feuds & Favors
Designer: Brad Hiscock
Artist: Noman Afzal
Publisher: Convivial Games
Year Published: Coming to Kickstarter in 2022
Feuds & Favors is a medieval-themed, turn-based, strategy card game featuring rival clans that are all competing for the title “The Paramount Legion”; the most respected title in the kingdom. Players use stacks of cards, called companies, as their legion.
On their turn, players must choose a series of 2 or 3 actions to further their cause. They can make an optional opening move but must make a positioning action followed by a main action.
Players can battle with each other by choosing one of their cards to bring into combat with an opponent’s. They can also gain permanent and temporary bonuses through quests and influential figures. A player may even lay cards that affect a battle when they are not a part of it.
There are two ways to win: Victory by collection of trophies (similar to victory points) or by survival (think last man standing).
Today Harry of @North of 60 Gaming gives us a real treat of a preview/walkthrough of an upcoming game (coming to Kickstarter in less than 2 weeks!!

The vanguard derives from the traditional division of a medieval army into three battles or wards; the Van, the Main (or Middle), and the Rear. The term originated from the medieval French avant-garde, i.e. “the advance guard”. The vanguard would lead the line of march and would deploy first on the field of battle, either in front of the other wards or to the right if they deployed in line.
