Berserk: Knights and Villains can be played on its own or as an expansion for Berserk: War of the Realms. The cards in Knights and Villains are a bit simpler than in the base set, but that does not mean that it is less interesting to play with them.
At the beginning of the game, you choose your side — Knights or Villains — then you recruit your army. All the creatures in this game have a cost, life, movement and basic strike, and some have additional abilities written on the card. The random factor in this game is a die; any player may use regular d6 die, or a special d6 die for attack or defense. Players place their creatures on the battlefield and the game begins. You can move and act with your creatures in any sequence.
