Chief’s Draft Pick Explained

Draft pick is a homebrew scenario we came up with which uses GW’s tactical objective cards and 6 objective markers placed with the maelstrom objective placement rules.  Before the game decide if standard secondary objectives are in play such as Slay the Warlord, First Blood, and Linebreaker. Here are the guidelines for this scenario:

Before each game turn tactical objective cards are drawn faceup from a single deck. They should be displayed openly and looked over by both players.

Players roll off to determine draft order and take turns choosing cards from the pool until they reach the maximum hand size. Any remaining cards are discarded. Repeat this process as the first step to each new game turn. Players may discard any number of cards that they wish to free up their hand before drafting again. If one player finishes drafting early because they started the turn with cards already in their hand, the other player is free to draw up to the max hand size.

Usually we draw 7 cards and have a max hand size of 3 cards each, so one card will be discarded by the drafting process each round. Since there are 36 tactical objective cards, you will go through almost the whole deck once when you draft on turn 5. If the game continues on past turn 5, reshuffle only the cards that force the players to the objectives such as “Control Objective X” cards and draft from there.

Drafting brings a new dynamic of player interaction to the table. You have to think about counter-picking cards from your opponent that might give them easy victory points. Sometimes taking a card that you won’t be able to score is worth it if you are denying your opponent points.

There are a few variations to this that we have tried such as adjusting the hand size, draft amount, discard limit, only using “Control Objective X” type cards the whole game, or shuffling two decks together.  A fun variation is drafting up more cards each round and increasing the hand size to 4 or 5, but only allowing players to discard 1 card each round. This makes choosing cards a little trickier, especially if you start the draft with more cards in your hand than your opponent.

Feel free to try this draft pick scenario in your next game. If you come up with any cool variations that aren’t mentioned here let me know! 🙂
