ARMIES OF OZ






INTRODUCTION
Large scale warfare in the Land of Oz. 

MAP
The map depicts an irregular, interlocked set of territories.
Each Territory compromises a small section of Oz.
Players will have to create their own Game Map. 
The picture above shows a map of Oz taken from the 
original books. 

VICTORY
Destroy the opposing Great Leaders. 

CONTROL MARKERS
Use chits to represent control markers (CM).
Each player has a set of control markers of a unique color. 
CM are placed on settlements and stacks of units to 
Indicate ownership. 

UNITS
Use chits to represent units.
Units include Great Leaders, Minor Leaders & non-leader units.

GREAT LEADERS
Each player picks one Great Leader to start the game with. 
Some Great Leaders available include: 
Queen Ozma (Good)
Glinda the Good Witch of the South (Good)
Locasta the Good Witch of the North (Good)
Elphaba the Wicked Witch of the West (Evil)
Roquat the Red: The Nome King (Evil)
General Jinjur (Neutral or Good)

OTHER POSSIBLE GREAT LEADERS
Oscar the Wizard of Oz (Neutral or Good): 
Possibly in place of Ozma or in a Prequel Setting. 
In a Prequel setting he would not be a Spellcaster.
Remove him from the Good Character Army List. 
Nessarose the Wicked Witch of the East (Evil): 
In a Prequel Setting or reincarnated.
Kaliko: The Nome King (Neutral or Evil): 
Replacement and Rival of Roquat. 
The Tin Woodsman (Good): 
Ruler of Winkie County after the events of the first book. 
Remove him from the Good Character Army List. 

ARMY LISTS
There are several separate Army Lists. 
Great Leaders will only be able to recruit Units from 
Certain Lists. 
Great Leader:	Army Lists Available: 
Ozma		Emerald City & Girl Army & Good Characters
Glinda		Ouadling Country & Girl Army & Good Characters
Locasta		Gillikin Country & Good Characters
Elphaba		Winkie & Gillikin Country & Evil Minions
Roquat		Nome Kingdom & Evil Allies
Jinjur		Girl Army & Good Characters
Oscar		Emerald City & Good Characters
Nessarose	Munchkin Country & Evil Minions
Kaliko		Nome Kingdom & Evil Allies
Tin Man		Winkie County & Good Characters
An Army list is actually a pile of Unit Counters. 

CONQUEST & ARMY LISTS
5 of the Army Lists depend on control of certain regions of Oz. 
These include: The Emerald City, Munchkinland, 
Winkie Country, Quadling Country, and Gillikin Country. 
If you control at least 1 Settlement in one of these 
regions, you may recruit units from its Army Lists.
These Units remain under your control even if you lose 
control of your last settlement in the region, or even if 
these units have to fight each other.  
The other Army Lists are not territory specific, and 
depend more on the alignment/politics of the Great Leader. 

SPELL CASTERS
Some Units (Most Great Leaders, some Minor Leaders, and a few 
Non-Leaders) will have Spell casting ability. 

DECK
Players share an action deck.
Action cards are discarded as soon as they are used. 

DICE
Six sided dice are needed. 

GOLD
Use coins to represent Gold. 

SETUP
Each player places his great Leader in a Settlement space. 
Each player starts with 5 random Units from any Unit List 
He can Use. 

TURN SEQUENCE
Players take turns. Each turn has 7 phases:
Draw Phase
Move Phase
Battle Phase
Revenue Phase
Recruit Phase
Upkeep Phase
Control Phase

DRAW PHASE
First discard any cards you don't want. 
Draw 3 cards. 
Max hand size = 7. Discard excess cards.
If the deck runs out, shuffle the discard and draw from it. 

MOVE PHASE
A Stack (Army) can only move if it contains at least one 
Leader or Great Leader.
Units designated as Scouts can move without a Leader.  
Each Unit has a Movement Point Allowance. 
A Stack cannot move farther than its slowest Unit, unless 
It leaves them behind. 
Various Terrains have a Movement cost to enter. 
Units (Stacks) can move into spaces containing opposing 
Stacks, but cannot move any further. 
Anytime you have a Scout unit adjacent to an enemy stack, you 
May look at the Units in that Stack. 

CROSSING RIVERS
A non-flying Unit must stop upon reaching a river, and 
Must spend it’s whole MPA to move across it on it’s next turn.  

FLYING UNITS
Always pay 1 MPA to move into a space. 
They can fly over (past) enemy non-flying units. 

BATTLE PHASE
When two opposing stacks occupy the same territory there 
will be a battle.
Each unit (+ Items & Companions) has a force value.
Add up the total Force values for each side.
Players may play action cards to increase their force value.
Note: Spell cards can only be used if a Stack has a Spell Caster.  
If one stack has a Leader and the other does not, the stack with the 
Leader gets an additional 5 Force. 
Each player rolls 2 dice and adds it to their total.  
The side with the highest Battle Total (Force value) wins.
The losing stack has one unit destroyed. 
The losing stack must retreat one space. 
If the stack cannot retreat, it is completely destroyed. 
Destroyed units are returned to their chit pile.
Leaders are always the last units to be destroyed. 

REVENUE PHASE
Each Settlement you control generates a specified amount of Gold.

RECRUIT PHASE 
Draw 1D6 random unit counters from an army List pile you can use.
Purchase units. A units cost in Gold is equal to its Force value. 
If you purchased all the drawn units, draw another 1D6 random units. 
Gold may be saved from turn to turn.
Discard unpurchased units back to the pile.
Units start in any Settlement you control.
The Good Characters Army List is Unique: You can only draw 1 Unit 
From it per turn.  

UPKEEP PHASE
Pay 1 Gold for each non-leader unit you control. 
Discard Units you cannot pay upkeep for.

CONTROL PHASE 
Place a control marker on each Settlement occupied by only your 
your units. Remove any CM of an opponent. 
Your CM remains until an opponent removes it by occupation. 

SCRY ABILITY
Some spells and Items allow you to Scry. 
When Scrying, you may do one of the following: 
-Look at the next 7 cards in the deck
-Look at your opponent’s hand
-Look at the Units in any one stack

ITEMS
There is a separate Pile for Items. 
They are acquired as a result of Action Cards. 
Assign them to a specific Leader. 
They may be kept to the side or stacked with the Leader. 

COMPANIONS
Treat these like Items, except that they are living Creatures.
