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:
- the remaining Monster cards (according to the number of players)
- 1 Warlord card
- 8 Monster cards
|Number of players||Number of Monster cards|
Note: In 2-player games, the Hero boards of the two players must be across from one another.
