Peacemakers: Horrors of War is a thematic co-operative board game where you attempt to bring peace. The game can be played with up to 4 players, including solo. As an adventurer, you try to stop armed conflicts between animalfolk nations. Do your best to avoid the horrors a destructive war would inflict.

The armies in the game act independently, so you cannot control them directly. Instead, you get multi-use resource cards, which you can use to thwart their plans. You only get a few new cards each round, so you have to figure out when and how to make the best use of them.

Bring peace together: Armies fight each other while you try to stop them. Work together using your limited resources to find a way towards peace.

6 replayable scenarios: Packed with high replay value and optional challenges, each scenario offers a new experience every time you play it. Different scenarios are as varied as the colourful animalfolks waging war in them.

Easy to get on the table: The scenarios can be played in any order, with the same or different players. The speedy setup and teardown means the only hard part is winning.

History of Peacemakers

A new era of peacemaking

Peacemakers: Horrors of War is an evolution of one of our previous games, Dawn of Peacemakers, released back in 2018. That and our later games have taught us a lot, and we’ve put that insight into making this new game full of improvements for both new and returning players.

Here are some of the big changes:

  • Stronger emphasis on theme allows you to fully become a force for peace.
  • Characters have unique strengths which bring a new dimension to the gameplay.
  • Faster setup and being able to play with different groups make the game easier to get on the table.
  • Streamlined rules are easier to learn, teach, and remember, without sacrificing any gameplay depth.
  • Individual scenarios instead of a campaign provide more flexibility and varied experiences.
  • New horror cards encourage protecting everyone, as otherwise the horrors can lead to your ruin.
