Monster wars is a strategy board and card game. The idea behind it is that you want to be the best Monster Tamer, and to do that you must stop the other Monster Tamers from taking over the Elder Council and destroying your Territory.
The game's mechanics are much like a combination of Red Dragon Inn (the deck style; IE: Each Tamer has their own deck of cards that is tailored to their needs, including spells and Monster Cards), a strategy board game (players try to advanced their Monsters into other Tamer's territories to take them over and help their Monsters gain strength), and a card battle system that combines both Power and Hp of each individual Monster with Dice Rolling.
Each player starts with a deck of cards between 50-60 cards and has two game pieces that they may place anywhere on their 20 territories. Players then try to purchase land markers called Tethers through the Gold System that is in place. When a Enemy Player crosses onto any territory with a Tether players may then retaliate with a Monster to start a fight, or allow the Player to take over their territory. You can also with Territory areas and Tether by winning battles, and by crossing onto enemy Territory that is undefended.
Monster Wars currently has 4 different Tamers, but there are plans for expansions.
