Each players chooses a race: take the REFERENCE SHEET and the COUNTERS of your favourite race.

Each player chooses 1 MAP, or takes the specific map of the choosen race.

In the picture see the three elements each player must have:
1 hexed MAP (here you see Mexico), the REFERENCE SHEET and the COUNTERS of your race.

Each player reads clearly to other players the Reference Sheet of his own Race.

Each Race starts with 7 FORTRESSES, each where are hidden ownith his own hidden Resource Points.
The RESOURCE POINTS are the key to Victory: in reality they could be weapons, food or supplies.
All Races start wit a total of 10 Resource Points, secretly hidden among
7 fortresses.
Each Race starts with a Fortress hiding
3 Value Points, one with 2 and five with 1, as you see in the picture.

VICTORY: Stop the war, controlling at the beginning of your turn, 12 Resource Points at least.

This means place own warriors in a number of Fortresses (own and enemies) so that the total of Resource Points hidden in these Fortresses is 12 at least.

WARRIORS Each army is composed of 5 different kind of warriors:
The MASTER, the WarAngel of that Race that represents yourself in the game
The Dominants, similar to the Master
The Warriors of 1st Intermediate Caste
The Warriors of 2nd Intermediate Caste
The Infantry Caste

Place a screen or Warangel Box among Maps, to not see enemy placement. Secretly place your FORTESSES at 6 hexes of distance at least . When adjacent they are at distance 1 so leave free at least 5 hexes as you see in picture.

Each Fortress hides 1 to 3 RESOURCE POINTS. The
wooden counter has the Resource Point number on the other side of the Fortress icon. You can also hide a warrior under each Fortess, just like you see in the picture.

Each REFERENCE SHEETS reports an historical background, an illustration and all icons of the warriors, each one provided with all actions and characteristics:

Pow. Power: strenght and skillfullness in close combat.

Vit. Vitality: the number of wounds necessary to defeat the warrior.

Mov. Movement: the Movement Points the warrior may spend to move on different hexes on the maps. Each hex has an own cost as listed on the rulebook.

Wrs. Warriors: the number of warriors of that caste that you must place at the beginning of each battle. Here you see the complete
WARANGEL RACES' LIST with the number of Warriors for each Race and the matching hexed Maps illlustrating actual places on Earth.

Val. Value: The cost of the warrior and his resistance to particular Mental Weapons.

Spe. Specializations: hexes on maps where the warrior always spends only
1 Movement Points and may RE-FLIP his Destiny Shields, both on offence and on defence.

DESTINY SHIELDS Are the "coins" that substitute dice and tables, designed to create fast gameplay and a good control on luck factor.
On one side they have a "drop" icon, on other side they are white.
The "drop" usually represents a wound on enemy: the more Shields you flip, the more are possibilities to hit a target.
A warrior with Power 5, flips 5 destiny Shields; a Physical Weapon with Power 3, flips 3 Shields and so on.
So, to defeat a target with Vitality 4, a good attack is at least with Power 8: with less you are hoping in fortune.

Secretly place your WARRIORS on your map, considering that only passages to invade other maps are the BLUE HOLES, near the border map. Each one of these Dimensional Doors has their own match on all maps (just imagine to overlay maps to found the matching gates).

No warrior may be placed on a Blue Hole. First player who declare his placement is ready, has the right to move first. When al players declare their placements are ready, remove the screens among maps and begin the battle.

Each Race combats in its own very particular way: each single warrior has its own characteristics, actions, weapons, and terrain specializations. So every single battle will be new and different from the other, always a new game experience.
Here you can find a
BATTLE EXAMPLE with two mighty races: Immortals and Redskins.

The Map Collector showing Eagles' Map (USA west with Grand Canyon and California separated by San. Andreas chasm, perfect land for Eagles) and Ghelates' Map (Iraq, with Tigris and Euphrates rivers and a large sector of desert, specialzation terrain for this army).

The Box containing the Warangel Rulebook and many Races you choose, kits with premounted, painted woodenpawns, ready to play.


For gamers who like to collect the great number of Races and Maps available in Warangel universo, is available this Map Collector with Logo and illustrations of the game, on Cover and Back.

It is really useful to collect A3 format plastic shields that perfectly contains and protect the Warangel hexed Maps. You can open the metal rings and take the Maps you will choose for each battle. During your battles, use your Maps inside their plastic shields, this will protect them perfectly.

See the VIDEO of the 25th Anniversary Warangel Box and the Map Collector Here.

2) The Box, containing the Rulebook and the Races, fits perfectly inside the Map Collector which keeps in order every choosed Map thanks to the metal ring and perfectly protects the Box with a cover that is much more resistant of the Box itself.

3) The Map Collector, folded, perfectly holds the Box and every element of the game choosed by the player: the Reference Sheets, the Races, the Maps you can choose to "Create YOUR Warangel".
