Battue: Storm of the Horse Lords
From the Publisher...
Rooted in the World of Terris, a brutal, dark fantasy setting envisioned by authors Robin Laws and Scott Hungerford, Battue: Storm of the Horse Lords is a strategy board game in which players take control of a horde of Horse Lords bent on looting Tarsos, the City of Brass Pillars. This strategy game is easy-to-learn, fast-playing, fun, and keeps players involved in the game even when it’s not their turn. The player who manages to control the choicest sections of the city and has the most loot at the end of the game is the winner. Further expansions will introduce new rules and options as well as allow additional players to join the game.

|Battue is a fast and furious game with lots of luck and direct conflict between players. It is also great fun and has good components. I kind of feel that this is the game that Risk should have been - and in some ways it reminds me of that great classic. What makes Battue so much better, however, is that you are looting and therefore constantly moving on rather than being holed up and slowing gameplay down. I highly recommend Battue to any competitive group of players that enjoy direct conflict - and it plays great with 3 players.
