Footsoldiers being brought down by archers, catapults destroying gold mines, barracks churning out new troops, the Black Death versus the Jabberwock, and all that sort of thing. One of the earliest Dvorak games, and the first to bring in an extra game component, in the form of gold.

This deck is also available in a Slovak translation.
I have also re-designed the slovak deck with pictures and formatting, check it out here.
