Description:

A handful of heroes have just stolen the powerful relics of the Baleful Queen. Without them, the immortal sovereign is weakened; recovering them is now her sole purpose.

With the High Mages attempting to destroy them, the heroes have fallen back into the Bastion of the Ancient Kings, where they must defend the fort to the peril their lives.

Unceasingly, the hordes led by the Warlords besiege the ramparts. If this citadel falls, an entire civilization will be swept away, and an entire world will fall into chaos…

Last Bastion is a cooperative game in which the players take on the roles of heroes defending an ancestral Bastion against the monstrous hordes of the Baleful Queen. The players struggle together against the game, either they all win victory, or else they all suffer defeat.

Object of the Game

The players take the roles of heroes who are defending an ancestral Bastion against the Monstrous hordes of the Baleful Queen. To claim victory, the heroes must vanquish the Warlord leading this army.

Setup

Difficulty level: Normal (suggested for your 1st game), 4-player game

1 Form the Bastion with the 4 Enclosure tiles.

2 The 9 Bastion tiles are randomly placed in order to form a 3 by 3 square inside the enclosure. …



  • Bastion Tiles

    The Bastion is formed of 9 tiles. Each of these tiles has an action which the players will be able to use throughout the game.

  • Enclosure Tiles

    4 Enclosure tiles surround the Bastion tiles and keep them in place.

  • Horde Boards

    Each of the 4 Horde boards has 3 spaces meant to hold Horde cards (Monster and Warlord).

  • Hero Boards

    8 Hero boards are available and each has a unique power. These boards are double-sided (picturing a healthy Hero in front and that same Hero, wounded, on the back). …



The Bastion is setup according to the same rule as with 4 players, with the exception of the following:

Each player chooses a Hero and links the corresponding Hero board to the Horde board in front of them. Unlinked Horde boards become Neutral boards.

Clarification: Horde phases for neutral boards are performed differently.

Prepare the deck according to the number of players:

  • Remove 4 Monster cards for each player less than 4 and shuffle the Monster cards
  • Take 8 Monster cards, place them under the Warlord card, then place the remaining Monster cards on top.

The deck is therefore formed thus, from top to bottom: …



Q: If a Monster has its resistance reduced to 0 (thanks to Mylfaar's power or the Standard Bastion tile), is it automatically discarded?

A: No, it's only vanquished if a Hero performs the Combat action against that monster (the success in combat is then automatic).

Q: Is a Hero required to move / perform an action?

A : No, the Move and Act actions are optional.

Q: Can a hero have more Life tokens than they had at the beginning of the game?

A: Yes, the Life tokens are only limited by the number of tokens in the reserve. …
