Battlelands: Aftermath Edition will pit you against the other creatures still around in the post-apocalyptic world where humanity has suddenly vanished. in this preview, we get a look at the different factions, as well as some of the cards on offer to them in this territory-grabbing card game.

From the post:

Battlelands: Aftermath Edition is a fast-paced turf war card game where 3-5 players fight over territories in order to gain the most scrap by the end of the game. Scrap can be obtained by claiming a territory or by gaining equipment cards.

There are five unique factions to choose from, each with units that have a strength number and indicators denoting whether they should be played in the ranged row or melee row. These rows are important because several units have special abilities that can alter the strengths of units in certain rows. Once a unit has been played, they cannot be picked up unless an ability allows them to be moved. Once a battle is resolved, all played units will go into a discard pile until the next war.
