Z-Man Games Previews Combat in Pandemic: World of Warcraft

There's normally not a lot of combat in a Pandemic board game. But in World of Warcraft®: Wrath of the Lich King® - A Pandemic System Board Game, there definitely is as the players fight against the evil Lich. Get a preview of just how that will work in this article about the upcoming game.

From the article:

Those not prepared for battle will not last long against the undead army that guards the steps of Icecrown Citadel. In World of Warcraft®: Wrath of the Lich King® - A Pandemic System Board Game, test your might against your foes as you roll dice and use your character’s special abilities to do battle upon the frozen wastes of Northrend.

In World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King - A Pandemic System Board Game, combat is an essential part to surviving the harsh land that is Northrend. Ghouls and abominations continue to spawn across the map until the Lich King is soundly defeated, and they don’t take kindly to those who stand against their master. Luckily, players are equipped with the right tools and abilities to hold their own.

During each player’s turn, they may perform four actions. One of the actions at their disposal is Fight, which can be used when on a space that is also occupied by any number of ghouls or abominations. When a player takes the fight action, he rolls the dice, plays any relevant hero cards, uses any abilities that would be useful, and tries to deal enough damage to defeat all the enemies in the current space.
