When pressed for time and table space and the hankering for battle hits, this is the perfect remedy and it is portable. Tiles represent troops and troops make up units in your army: just determine the size of the battle and create your own army from a pool of existing troops. Each tile hits on certain rolls, and some can only melee while others can shoot. Some tiles also have special traits which can affect their whole unit or their whole army. Armies fight in three sectors, the battlefield. The goal is to eliminate at least half the value of your opponent's army. Pocket Battles: Orcs vs. Elves is the second game in the series of "Pocket Battles", after Pocket Battles: Celts vs. Romans. The series is designed to have each army fully compatible with any other, so it will be possible, for example, to fight with orcs against Romans, or to have a mixed army of elves and Celts.
