Description Edit | History

Stronghold is a game telling the story of a siege. Players take opposite sides, one has to defend the stronghold, the other has to break into the castle as soon as possible. As time passes, defenders get Victory Points every turn for their efforts on the walls.

The game board represents the stronghold itself as well as the surrounding terrain, where enemy forces are placed and whence they proceed to the walls.

The defender has a small number of soldiers manning the walls, while the invader has an infinite legion of attacking creatures. A desperate fight is taking place every single turn. The invaders build war machines, equip their soldiers, train them and use black magic rituals to achieve victory. Meanwhile, defenders repair walls, build cannons, train soldiers, and do everything they can to hold the castle as long as possible.

1 Stronghold Übersicht für Spieler Verteidiger
Die Datei enthält ein PDF-Dokument, welche eine von mir übersetzte Version der Spielerübersicht des "Verteidigers" darstellt. Sie ist für die zweite Ausgabe des Spiels von Valley Games gültig, welche bisher nur auf Englisch erschienen ist. Im Gegensatz zur "alten" deutschen Version habe ich einige Übersetzungen geändert, da sie mir sinnhaltiger bzw. griffiger erschienen: - Orte auf dem Spielplan: "Foreground" wurde bisher mit "Vorfeld I" übersetzt, bei mir ist dies der "Außenbereich". "Rampart" wurde bisher mit "Vorfeld II" übersetzt, bei mir ist dies der "Grabenbereich". "Barbican" wurde von mir als "Torbereich" übersetzt und "Tower" konsequent mit "Bastei".

1 Stronghold Übersicht für Spieler Aggressor
Die Datei enthält ein PDF-Dokument, welche eine von mir übersetzte Version der Spielerübersicht des "Aggressors" (des Angreifers - diesen Begriff habe ich allerdings vermieden, da auch der Spieler, welcher die Festung verteidigt, zuweilen als "Angreifer" tätig ist!) darstellt. Sie ist für die zweite Ausgabe des Spiels von Valley Games gültig, welche bisher nur auf Englisch erschienen ist. Im Gegensatz zur "alten" deutschen Version habe ich einige Übersetzungen geändert, da sie mir sinnhaltiger bzw. griffiger erschienen: - Orte auf dem Spielplan: "Foreground" wurde bisher mit "Vorfeld I" übersetzt, bei mir ist dies der "Außenbereich".
