Armello is a richly detailed and complex board game that layers on a ton mechanics and victory conditions such that no two games are alike. A lot of this has to do with the fact that the game uses dice rolls, card draws, and other chance-based systems to determine outcomes. When you first start playing Armello, you might think the key to winning is simply getting lucky, but that’s where you’d be mistaken. Check out some of these tips to help you make the randomness work for you.

Pick the right character

There’s quite a few different characters in Armello, but each of them have their own unique stats and abilities. When playing, you should look to play as characters that help you achieve the goals you tend to pursue in any given match.

Do you usually find yourself dueling other characters? Choose Thane for his high combat stats and his ability to pierce armor with burned sword cards. If you prefer messing with your opponents in subtler ways? Perhaps play as Mercurio to steal their gold. If you’re not sure who to play as just yet, you can also opt to play as Amber while you try to figure things out, as she’s a decent all-around character.

PAX 2013: Armello On Track for 2014 Release

Posted by Jeff Scott on September 4th, 2013

Armello is a strategy RPG/card battle game has been pushed to a 2014 release. We originally took a look at this game at GDC earlier this year and thought we'd check in for progress. The game currently looks absolutely stunning. You can't really see it from the Instagram below, but the graphics and animations are some of the best I've seen even though it's only running on an iPad mini. Certainly one to be on the look out for.
