Bellum Sacrum

In 2019, I worked with Anthony Gibbins of Legonium on the illustrations for a card game based on the Roman gods and their attributes: Bellum Sacrum.

Bow String Games is pleased to announce Bellum Sacrum – a two-player competitive card game featuring the Gods of Ancient Rome. Draw, Deploy, Strengthen, Attack and Invoke your way to victory, as the gods in your own column strive to defeat the gods in your opponent’s. Players take turns of 4 actions each, choosing the right combination of moves to damage their opponent without leaving themselves too open to attack. With an ever-changing battle field Bellum Sacrum poses a set of light but brain-busting choices every single turn. Victory is declared when one player has – through a combination of invocations and attacks – cleared their opponent’s column five times, winning themselves five trophies.

The game was successfully funded on Kickstarter in December 2019, and you can learn more about it at the official Bellum Sacrum site.
