La Carga de los 3 Reyes: Las Navas de Tolosa 1212

Each player has 5 formations and a deck of tactical cards and a deck of strategic cards. During his turn, the player will receive tactical and strategic cards and will activate 3 of his formations, each in a different impulse and alternating with his opponent. In each impulse you can play a tactical card, even in the opponent's impulse if the card is a reaction card. Additionally, during any moment of the turn, the player can play a strategic card.

Another strategic tool that each player has in his hand is the so-called "Command Point", which also has two aspects: the "Ordinary Command Point", to be used every turn by rolling the dice, and another of direct use, called "Single Command Point", of a single use in the whole game and that guar

Each player has 5 formations and a deck of tactical cards and a deck of strategic cards. During his turn, the player will receive tactical and strategic cards and will activate 3 of his formations, each in a different impulse and alternating with his opponent. In each impulse you can play a tactical card, even in the opponent's impulse if the card is a reaction card. Additionally, during any moment of the turn, the player can play a strategic card.

Another strategic tool that each player has in his hand is the so-called "Command Point", which also has two aspects: the "Ordinary Command Point", to be used every turn by rolling the dice, and another of direct use, called "Single Command Point", of a single use in the whole game and that guarantees automatic success. With this command point you can alter or cancel different situations of the game, such as cards played by the opponent, anticipate the opponent by moving consecutive impulses, cancel the opponent's command points, avoid own defections, etc.

On each side there are units with heavy and light armor, both on horseback and on foot. The firing table discriminates the effectiveness according to the armor of the target, the weapon (crossbows, bows), the distance and whether the firing unit is mounted or not. Reaction shots are possible in the face of opponent's attacks.

Cavalry charges and possible reaction charges are also represented and we can find identified different types of units with specific rules, such as spearmen, black guards, religious fanatics, military orders, ultramontane crusaders, azgaz archers, etc.

The main characters of the battle are represented, such as the archbishop of Rada, the kings of Castile, Aragon and Navarre, the caliph and the Almohad vizier, etc., many of which have particularities that will have to be taken into account.

The terrain is practically flat except for the Cerro de los Olivos and the defensive palenque located at the top, which allows defensive advantages.

The game allows a high level of replayability thanks to the fact that the decks of cards and their distribution (with common cards and specific cards of each faction) achieve very diverse possible combinations. In addition, the historical deployment is facilitated, but with zones where the different formations are deployed freely by the player and in secret, so that within the delimited zones there is diversity of placement. Free placement is also allowed, which comes to permute the formations of place. Therefore, fun is assured.

In short, a historical war game, but that will not restrict players from making their own decisions. That is why The Charge of the 3 Kings, Las Navas de Tolosa 1212 is a highly recommended game for a wide range of public and, especially, for lovers of historical strategy.
