What is Successors (Fourth Edition) about?

In its fourth edition, this card-driven, point-to-point movement strategy stands out from similar games. 

How to Play

Successors (Fourth Edition) is a strategy game that takes place during the Diadochi Wars – a period of conflict and power struggle following the death of Alexander the Great. Each player takes on the role of a successor, trying to gain control over territories in order to become the new ruler.

The game mechanics are quite simple yet challenging. Players have a limited number of actions per turn, so every move needs to be carefully thought out. The use of cards adds an element of unpredictability to the game, as players can play event cards that can have a major impact on the game. The combat system is based on dice rolls, but there are also other factors such as terrain and unit types that come into play.

Who Can Play

This game is not for everyone – it requires patience, careful planning, and a love for history. But if you enjoy these elements, then Successors (Fourth Edition) will definitely be a hit for you. It’s a game that rewards long-term thinking and strategic decision-making, while also providing moments of unexpected twists and turns.

What Makes It Fun

One of the things I love about Successors (Fourth Edition) is that it requires both strategic planning and adaptability. You need to plan ahead, but also be ready to change your strategy depending on the cards you draw and the moves of your opponents. This keeps the game dynamic and exciting until the very end.
