SAGA Happened! Battlereport (sort of)

Today some casual 4 Point games in the Shop happened... not alot of Pictures saw the light of the day but the ones that i did take were kinda cool.

Nevertheless the game is really exciting, fresh and rather short and casual. So we played Crusaders against my 4p Normans starter Warband. Learnings were pretty simple... do not place your Warlord so far up. After round one he ate dirt and my other units were hurting really bad already.

Looking forward to get more action in on this fun skirmish game.

Essen 2015 Report: Blood Rage / Star Wars!

Bloodrage Demo Game

We had a chance to playtest Blood Rage at Essen at our 2nd day while we had no luck the day before.

The game itself looks gorgeous as we already knew from pictures so we were abit afraid of the gaming system to be flawed as it borrowed some elements from games that seem to be problematic in certain areas. Those fears were quickly washed away when we got into the game.

I was personally very impressed by how easy the rules are to learn. Within 15-20 minutes you heard it all and i could imagine that with a group of 4 experienced players you get the playtime within 60 minutes even.

I had a blast even though it was just the first game but i was impressed by how fluent the game moved around and played out. There was alot of agression happening on the gameboard - you cannot turtle yourself in by design, there's just dead vikings left and right and even though the turns are not simultaneous i never felt that i had to wait for any considerable amount of time.

I suggest to check out the reviews on Boardgame Geek for a more indepth insight in the mechanics, i couldn't do that any better but i know now at least that this game will be a hit. It's a really well designed game with alot of action and lots of different approaches to victory.

For me personally a day 1 purchase. And yes i'm not just saying that because we sell it: http://wellplayed.ch/products/blood-rage-engl?variant=4805637124

 

Some more impressions:

 

Wave 2 sighted!

Nothing big to report here except... we saw the new Wave 2 models, and yeah... the ISD is really big, pictures don't do it justice but maybe you can see from the picture how much bigger it is compared to the Gladiator next to it. I was so excited for seeing it that i completely forgot to take pictures of Home one and the Mc30c. But they also looked awesome, especially the latter one.

Bonus: The small models from rogues & villains look rather detailed for their size, here's a picture of the Millenium Falcon up close:

 

X-Wing Imperial Assault Carrier

No words needed here, might not be canon but hey, it looks awesome!
