How To Play Gorechosen Board Game

3 Minute Read
Sep 29 2016


Gorechosen is the new board game from GW. Here is a quick look at how to play the newest installment to Age of Sigmar!

This game is pretty simple and pretty fun. It can be set up and played in less than an hour and we can see this being used as a social drinking games between some friends.


Here are some screen shots from this How To Play video that explains exactly how the game plays out.


Each Action card has three ways to play it, move, defend, and of course attack. However some of your hardest hitting attacks are also very good blocking actions as well, so you must decide wisely which is worth more to you!


Even the board spaces can damage you, from flying to your death in a pit, or getting slammed into the outer wall or obstacle.



Initiative is the key to actions in this game, the more wrath you have, the more activation cards you get. Each player’s activation cards are shuffled to form the activation deck, so you never know if and when it will be your turn to perform an action!

The more you’re damaged or the more abilities you play in lieu of attacks, the more wrath you get,. While the more damage you inflict generally the more wrath you lose, and the less you activate to attack!

Striking a careful balance between attacking and defending may be the the key to keeping your character’s head firmly attached to his body.

Don’t miss this game, it’s a blast!

The Bloodbound – these are the lunatics who have passed the trials of Khorne, proving themselves worthy of his violent gifts. Since the dawn of the Age of Chaos, they have destroyed kingdoms and empires in a stunning tide of ferocity, reaping blood and skulls for their god. The most devoted, those who have trodden the bloodstained Path to Glory, are the Gorechosen. True glory for these elites of Chaos lies in offering the mightiest skulls to Khorne – and what skull mightier than that of another Gorechosen?


The Game

In this game, four champions of Khorne are thrown into the pit, fighting bitterly against each other to prove who is the most worthy of the Blood God’s gifts! Fight every man for himself, or team up against the strongest player to decide who is the most favoured of Khorne – lots of variations and tweaks to the bloodthirsty core game rules are included.
