Bloodstones is a fantasy wargame for one to six players featuring six different races, each with their own specific powers. Each of the six races in Bloodstones has its own mix of units, represented by domino shape tiles. Some of these units will be unique to that race, such as Dragons to the Dragon Riders and Giants to the Hill Folk.
The aim of the game is to have the most victory points at the end of the game, which can be gained by building villages, by raiding other players’ villages and by winning battles
All the tiles and markers are High Impact Plastic, with heat-transferred artwork. This has a similar feel to the tiles used in Azul. More tile information here.
The Maps are soft, made from 170gsm faux silk, and lay flat on a table while reducing weight. Dimensions are 73×61.5cm for most maps (the 5-6 play map will be larger – dimensions to be shared when I know) More map information here. The maps are machine washable (cold water) You can see the map (old art) movement here
The Faction Cards are double-sided, and printed on 250gsm paper composite, which is the stuff that’s impossible to tear.
The Bags are made from velvet, with machine embroidery. You can see a bit more about them here and here
The Box is linen-finished and printed on the inside, both lid and bottom.
The Rule Book is printed on thick paper, with a linen finish applied.
