Defenders of the Realm: Battlefields is set in the world of Defenders of the Realm, but is a stand-alone game in which players compete against one another
One side represents the Dark Lord's invading army, while the other side are playing the heroes defending the realm.
There are 14 battlefield cards included in the game, and 3 are laid out at random over which the sides will compete
Players take turns playing cards onto one of the battlefields in play in order to build up enough strength to claim that battlefield card
The first team to claim any five battlefields or three battlefields of the same color wins
