A GAME OF TACTICAL CARD COMBAT

You are one of the TIME BARONS, shadowy figures who have shaped mankind's destiny since the dawn of time. People are simply pawns in your quest to defeat the other barons and become the ruler of a unified human race. War, religion, technology - all will be used in this ultimate battle.

As a time baron, only you can decide the best way to exploit your loyal followers and make the most of the many powerful cards you are dealt. Will you upgrade as rapidly as possible, hoping to obtain that technological edge, or punish such folly with primitive weapons and fanatical attacks? Will you be relentless in your aggression or build an economic advantage? A variety of tactics are available to you at every turn, and you may find yourself putting bubonic plague on your opponent's robotics lab to slowly kill off the workers there, or attaching a computer network to a medieval church to automate the conversion of new followers. In this brutal struggle, many will die... but good planning, quick thinking, and a little luck will carry the day!

Cards in time barons come from 4 different time periods—medieval, industrial, modern, and future.

Originally released in 2014 as a print-on-demand game for just 2 players, Time Barons was republished by WizKids in November of 2017. Features of the new version include:

- Balance improvements to the original cards

- Graphical improvements throughout

- 50 brand new expansion cards that introduce new mechanisms

- Team and free-for-all modes that allow up to 4 players to compete

REVIEWS AND AWARDS

- "Time Barons is easily one of the best games I've played in the last year. It's quick to pick up and play, sure, but underneath that simple exterior beats a cruel, nasty, brilliant and beautiful heart. You MUST own a copy. Not should. MUST." -Michael Fox, The Little Metal Dog Show

- "It’s a simple game to learn, but it offers surprising depth." -Marshall Sandoval, Paste Magazine

- "This is a fantastic game which both myself and my game group are thoroughly enjoying. With all the games that are published each year it is becoming increasingly difficult to find the hidden gems, but Time Barons is definitely one of them and it will be staying in my collection as one of my favourites. So if you fancy a fast paced, two player battle game with strategic depth that completes in 30 minutes then you need to look no further than Time Barons. (9.2/10)" -Simon Neale, Writer & Columnist for Counter Magazine

- "I believe this could be a major game-of-the-year contender. It’s hands down the best two-player card game I’ve ever played. (10/10)" -Stephen Woodward, The Unplugged Gamer

- "I’d have to recommend Time Barons. It’s a high energy two player jaunt through the ages that you’ll want to explore time and time again. The number of strategic options are plentiful and interaction between players never lets up... Seriously, if you’re a fan of confrontational two player games, this one should be on your list – and believe me, this is confrontation at it’s finest!" -Peter Sellers, Meeples Next Door

- "I really liked Time Barons. If you are in the market for a two player game you need to check this out." -Forrest Bower, Bower's Game Corner
