Rise of the Horde

Decimate the countryside as you build your Horde and amass the greatest loot!

Take on the role of a mighty orc chieftain as you pillage and raid the countryside in search of food, resources, and treasure! Only the strongest tribe will survive and become the greatest horde in the lands!


Players take turns placing their Orcs on the many available action spaces. Chop wood, mine ore, and carve stone to accumulate basic resources then visit the Forge to craft weapons to be used during raids!

The Kingdom is full of villages, keeps, and a Castle chock full of resources and treasure for the taking. Launch raids to grab what you can and use weapons to break down defenses to increase your spoils. Completely decimate a location to score a Raze bonus to add to your spoils!

Be careful because you will need to feed your horde at the end of each season so keep plenty of food around!

Upgrade your warband with new buildings, forge the right weapons, and launch your raids at the right time to stay one step ahead of the pack to secure the most loot and become the greatest horde in the lands!
