Black Rose Wars is a competitive fantasy game of deck-building, strategy, and combat set in the hectic universe of Nova Aetas.

Each player is a powerful mage of the Black Rose Order who aspires to become the new Supreme Magister, in order to acquire the mighty power of the Black Rose Artifact and the Forgotten Magic. Each mage has six schools of magic at their disposal, each one with its own strategy to annihilate their opponents and increase their power.

Mages fight each other in a modular arena of hexagonal rooms. They summon powerful creatures, cast destructive spells, or devise dark deceptions with their enchantments. If they are killed, mages are ”reborn” immediately, allowing them to re-enter the fight without delay, although their death still fed energy to those mages who caused it.

The mage with the most power at the end of the battle will be crowned Supreme Magister!

Black Rose Wars is a game designed by Ludus Magnus Studio. The English edition is published and distributed by Ares Games.

Marco and Geneve, two new mages, make their debut in Hidden Thorns, vastly increasing the choice of characters in the game. Marco, of Molisan origins, is specialized in the School of Illusion, while Geneve, from Paris, masters the spells of the School of Conspiracy. The new mages are represented by two beautiful miniatures, and the box contains all the game components needed to play them.

With Hidden Thorns, you can expand the battles fought within the Black Rose Lodge. Increase the maximum number of players in a Black Rose Wars game to six, or extend your choice of characters with these new mages.

Summonings is a series of three all-miniature expansions for Black Rose Wars, which introduces three kinds of summoning creatures: Constructs, Undead, and Demons.

Summonings: Undead is one of these miniature expansions, featuring a set of summoned creatures which your mage can bring into play. Previously only available in the Kickstarter version of the game, these beautiful figures are now available to upgrade and visually enhance the Black Rose Wars Core Game. They are also a great complement to any fantasy role-playing game.

Each set of miniatures is vastly different from the others. The Undead allow players to lead their personal army of loyal skeleton warriors, composed by 11 incredible miniatures: Landsknechts (x8, 45mm) and Bone Knights (x3, 50mm).

These are not complete games.  A copy of Black Rose Wars - Core Game is required to play.
