In 2022, the flesh-eating forest of Gnarlwood gave way to a war between Slaanesh and Idoneth Deepkin. In Deathgorge, the conflict takes place in Ghur and shakes things up.
Warhammer Underworlds: Deathgorge is one of Games Workshop’s most popular games for newcomers and veterans alike. It’s a great gift for a beginner or for someone who has been playing for a while.
Unlike most Warhammer titles, Underworlds combines miniatures skirmishes with collectible cards. Each player must take a hand of Objective cards and Power cards. It includes pre-built Rivals decks that are ready for play right out of the box for those who don’t want to construct their own decks.
You can build your own decks or you can pick up a Rivals deck included in the box. These are pre-built decks, so you can start playing right away.
A lot of players will recognize Deathgorge as a similar game to Wyrdhollow. You want to gain Glory Points by killing your opponent or completing Objective cards. However, it is important to know your cards and complete Objectives so you can beat your opponents.
In each round, players have four activations during which they can use their fighters to execute one of several different actions. The game ends with an End Phase in which your hand of cards is replenished and objective cards are determined
In addition, there are a few changes in the gameplay.
- By using a Stun action, fighters can stagger enemy fighters, leaving them more vulnerable to further attacks instead of directly attacking them
- There is a new super-action where a fighter leaps out of an opponent’s way and stuns them. The downside is that the attacking fighter is staggered
- As a result, you can discard Power cards that are restricted to a fighter in your Warband who is already out of action and replace them with something hopefully more useful.
If you have not tried it yet, go ahead and try the game.
