From the Publisher...
The dark lord Llovar has commanded all the orcs of the Broken Plain to march against the alliance of elves, dwarves, and men. As the chief of an orc tribe, you must marshal your forces of wolfriders, archers, grunts, champions, and shamans and lead them to war on the four battlefields of Mennara.
Foul tempered and hideously evil, Llovar can also be a generous master to those who serve him well. With each battle won, the Dark Lord awards the orc chief with the strongest army a gift of goblin slaves. Goblins are pathetic but wonderfully useful - they can bring you ale, take out the garbage, and wash your feet. Mostly, they bring you ale, 'cause you don't really mind garbage and dirty feet. Win the most battles, hoard the most goblin slaves, and the other chiefs will bow and grovel before you!

|Sometimes it is fun to play the bad guys and this game gives you the chance. I found the fun to be in deploying, where you try to out guess your opponents with limited revealed information. Unfortunately, the part about revealing your hidden army, executing the results, is not as climaxing as it seems to be. Nevertheless, a fun and short game for a change. Oh, you can easily teach the kids to play it too :-)
