Martial Cards allows for a variety of contextual interactions, even though it is fundamentally based on a very simple core input mechanism of card-based movement. At the same time, this embeds the short-term challenge of tactical positioning in a set of more long-term strategic arcs connected to hand (i.e. movement options) management.
