Keg Bearer is a silly tactical board game for 1-4 players. Ideal for families and/or kids.

• 2-4 player battle royals.
• 2 on 2 team play.
• Co-op vs AI play.
• 1 on 1 play.
• Various maps and terrain features.
• 3 different modes of play.
• Select unit custom deployments.
• Simple map editing and unit re-positioning.

The interesting thing about this game is that you can shoot or set defensive states when it's not your turn. So everyone always has something to do with this 'huddle' style game.

Drag and drop, tap units to change state, double tap kegs to heal, pull back to aim and shoot (if loaded and in shoot mode).

The strategy is not just about movement and positioning – it also involves line of sight crossbow shooting, shot blocking, axe melee & mass beserking. Injured units don’t just bleed and lose hit points – they do less damage and can’t move as far.  And the one unit you have to protect also happens to be a healer.

The great Keg Bearer (considered to be the king) has a healing 'Keg of ALE' that he sprays upon adjacent units. If you kill this unit then you win as no dwarf wants to fight without his ALE!!

Ratings and Reviews

A brief, but honest, review


To be perfectly honest, Keg Bearer is not a great game. Graphics are bare-bones, sounds are rudimentary, and the gameplay is limited. It is almost a tech-demo in its depth. And yet that is what is to exciting about this app. It gives a glimpse into what could be a very, very good groundwork for war games. If you too are starved for war games that don't come in giant boxes, support this developer and his two upcoming REAL projects Musket Smoke and Grognards.

Fun war theme board game!


This is a really fun war theme board game with balanced units, cool music and sound effects. Its really easy to play and with alot of gameplay options matches can last from 5 minutes to an hour. I also really like the cool effects like the blood trails of damaged units.

I have a few suggestions for future updates:

1) add a few more maps
2) add more terrain objects like trees or huts
3) have the ability to adjust the number of units of each AI color separately
4) add new units like one with a two-handed sword

Won't let me play

I don't know how to review a game that won't allow you to play. As soon as you begin and hit the play button you receive the error message that rocks are blocking the path to the keg, even when there are no rocks on the map. This game looks great on the video demo but until I can actually play it I have to give it a one star
