BattleLore fans rejoice! Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming availability of the BattleLore Core set!
Due to the difficulties surrounding the production of the original BattleLore Core Sets (as mentioned earlier this year by CEO Christian Petersen), Fantasy Flight Games has decided to repurpose the French edition Core Sets in order to make them available for English BattleLore players!
These repurposed Core Sets will include English cards and reference sheets.. The English rules, as well as any other pertinent English material, will be made available as online PDFs for download. These BattleLore Core Sets will feature a sticker that denotes them as repurposed French editions that are fully compatible for English-speaking players.
(Look for this sticker to denote these repurposed Core Sets)
So back into the fray! Don’t miss your chance to get one of these repurposed BattleLore Core Sets!
Watch the BattleLore page for additional info to come!
Set in a world that bridges history and fantasy, BattleLore is board game that puts 2 players in command of a vast array of miniature troops on the battlefields of medieval Europe. Using the easy-to-learn Commands and Colors system, players can wage thrilling battles quickly!
Hat's off to FFG! This is a good thing for Battlelore and solves (at least for the short term) one of the major complaints I've seen by potential players not being able to buy the core game except through eBay. Nice move FFG, looks like someone's been listening to the gamers...
Yeah, but how many sets will be available, this is definitely not a long-term solution.
Did Bl sell bad in French ?
Anyhow, still a good move for the Bl game.
Excellent. I really don't have any plans for getting this, primarily because I already have everything currently available, but the simple fact that more core sets will be available means that more new people will be able to start playing BL, meaning more of an impetus for FFG to start putting out new BL products! Combined with the new "human army pack", this pretty much rounds out everything needed to start producing completely new products for BL.
Pretty awesome. More Battlelore is always a good thing!
Indeed! This will help expanding the player base and fund new expansions. ;)
A very smart move.
