This is a very simple (multiple player mats) board game with dueling cards. The idea is for players to pick legions (Mughals, Mongols, Maharajas, Persians or Sikhs (card decks).

Then battle them together either:
- conquering the entire city (like Risk) or
- Use the objective cards and play out - your own strategy to move on the board - to play the moves on the objective cards.

E.g. For (player 1) Ganghis Khan to win Against (player 2) Mughals he must defeat Mughals, player must defeat Emperor Babar his queen and either a General or Prince.

I would be happy to share the gameplay and rules if you think this can work.

Welcome to BGDF!

First off,

What does L.A.H.O.R.E stand for?

Secondly, there is not enough information in your post for me to "know" if it will work as a game.

Game ideas are very strange things, until there is a framework of rules, components and mechanics it is hard to "share" the idea in a meaningful way.

See if you can write or develop for your game, the sort of "description" you might see for an already published game. Then share that and see what sort of reaction that brings.

Something like:

    Scythe
    A Worker Placement/Economic Engine board game set in an alternate-history 1920s period. Each player begins the game with different resources (power, coins, combat acumen, and popularity), a different starting location, and a hidden goal. The game uses a streamlined action-selection mechanism (no rounds or phases) to keep gameplay moving at a brisk pace and reduce downtime between turns. While there is plenty of direct conflict for players who seek it, there is no player elimination. Combat is also driven by choices, not luck or randomness. There are many interconnected systems to score in the end of the game, but the player with the most coins at the end WINS! The game is for 2-5 players and plays in 90-115 minuets.

There might be somethings you don't yet know and for them just guess! Like for how long it takes to play...

I hope this helps in some way.

This is... a confusing

This is... a confusing post.

What is the game? Can you make it more clear? I heard something about there being cards, and a board, and some kind of area control between historical armies of some sort. Yes, that can work - many games have this setup. What is your game though?
