The board represents the flowing of time through different eras. According to Sabaton’s discography and military history, we thought about these ages: ancient warfare, medieval warfare, gunpowder warfare, and modern warfare. These ages are well defined by the weapons used and by the tactics developed by generals. Ancient warfare is focused on hand-to-hand combat, large armies of footmen, and primitive artillery. Medieval warfare is based on chivalry and more accurate ranged weapons, Gunpowder warfare introduced fire weapons, and Modern warfare relies on automatic weapons and war machines. But technology is not the only weapon: each Hero has a more powerful resource, his Courage.”
“Each bandmember of Sabaton grew up with the tradition of board games and role-playing games, and the blood of these games runs in our veins. Just as we carry the tradition of playing the metal we grew up with, we also now carry the tradition of keeping board games alive, along with the social interactions that it comes with. Together with our partner Scribabs we present you: ‘A Battle Through History: An Adventure With Sabaton’!”
