Power & Weakness
From the Publisher...
England in the 5th century; Saxons against Celts!
The players are powerful factions who try to gain control over England. They use both conventional fighting and also magic. Knights and magicians in their service are sent to the provinces and try to remove their opponents.
But the methods of magicians and knights are very different. The knights turn to their swords and must slog overland from province to province. Meanwhile, the magicians can make use of the secret magical places and appear by surprise in an area that the knights believe is already secured for their own side. And so the struggle surges to and fro until one side attains power.
What is unique in Power & Weakness is that two games are played at once; one game for magical control and one game for military control. Each player must decide whether to concentrate on the military or the magical field – or to try to be equally good in both - in order to attain power and gloat over the weakness of the opponent.
Power & Weakness (Macht und Ohnmacht) is a two player game.
