Reiner Knizia’s The Confrontation is a turn-based strategy game pitting two players, Light and Shadow, against one another with asymmetric forces and hidden units.

Play as the beleaguered Light, embarking on a desperate quest to save the kingdom from the evil sorcery that has fallen over the land. Carefully guide your forces across the board, avoiding the awaiting dark side armies, and lead your Prince to the Stronghold to defeat evil at its source.

Play as the loathsome Shadow, rampaging across the land, destroying any Light character within your path. Seek out and destroy the Prince before he can succeed in his quest, or lay siege to the Capital with 3 of your units to conquer Light at its heart.

Deploy your forces, each with its own unique power, and fight your way through the land, using cards in combat to increase your strength or perform tactical feats to outwit your foe. Exploit special features throughout the landscape and powerful spells to navigate around enemy forces or ambush them as they attempt to reach their goal. Many will perish along the way, but will their sacrifices be in vain?

Like many of Knizia’s designs, The Confrontation can be played casually between beginners or fiercely between master strategists – it’s up to you and your opponents!

Complete Version of Confrontation Deluxe

Now, it's the full version of Confrontation Deluxe a game codesigned by one of my favorite designers Eric Lang. This brings it completely to life and I love it. Ultimately, it was a important refinement to one of Reiner Knizia's most poplular games by one of the wunderkind designers who's gone on to be a top name. This adaptation is an exact version of the game and now I can play remotely with some of my earlier opponents -- a most welcome addition to iPad boardgames :D

Great start

Very good game, i have the board game also, but could use more to easily make it 5 stars. One annoying thing is the board zooming in and out, i wish there was an option to leave it where you set it last turn or to always have the full board show. A few, or any, scenarios would lengthen the game play and add variety, the instructions, unless i'm missing something, do not tell you the effects of special cards. Over all the game play is great, graphics as far as art work is great, and having levels of computer ai for both sides is very good.

Innovative Strategy game

Nice game, bit expensive but so far works flawlessly and the strategy dimension is quite interesting. Piece movement and bonus cards (mostly +attack but also magic, shield block, etc.). I hope the developer expands the depth of game play and boards as I'm intrigued and keeping up play.
