I already told you all about the cool stuff in the Earth Reborn box! Well, I opened it, I played it and it was awesome! It’s a miniatures boardgame set in a post apocalyptic future where our planet was ravaged and destroyed by war. The only people that survived were the ones that managed to hide in great underground cities for 500 years. Now the people are beginning to emerge to the surface… Two such cities are the two warring factions that you get in the box, the NORAD and the Salemites. NORAD has powerful warfare technology, mechs and chemically buffed super soldiers, while the Salemites bring zombies, genetics, cybernetics and occultism to the battlefield. Both factions are very cool, and very interesting to play. The game itself is scenario based and the best thing that you can do is play them in order because they are like a tutorial in a computer game. The first scenario uses only some core rules, movement and melee fighting from the rules. This is the scenario that I played with three more friends, of course.
This has to be one of my favorite board games. Not only that it is funny and interesting to play, it is also very challenging and can be frustrating some times. Dungeon Lord is game for 2-4 players, however, I have only once played with fewer than four players and was disappointed. That is because there is a random player that does everything on random and is not that interesting to play with. This game was made by Vlaada Chvatil, and I can say that any game made by him is a totally new experience. I have played few of his games and each is interesting as the one before. Box cover Dungeon Lords is a game of dungeon building. Every player receives one dungeon from the Ministry of Dungeons, and is two years on probation as Overlord. After two years if you have passed your test, Ministry of Dungeons let you keep your dungeon, otherwise you lose everything you have
This is third and last article about one of my Malifaux Crews, with which I managed to take the first place on Malifaux tournament held in my local club. There were two articles before this one about Victorias and Convict Gunslinger. They are the “essence” of my Crew, but they can’t work without help. Rules of tournament stated that we played with 28 soulstones, so I had to find something that would work well with Victorias. And that is when I decided to take Ronin. And they appeared to be great in combination with Victorias. As one Ronin costs 5 soulstones, I took three of them and one Gunslinger, and was left with 8 soulstones. As Victoria doesn’t have any soulstone cache I had to left few for game, and that is when I figured why not to take the Desperate Mercenary, leaving me 6 soulstones in pool for game. Great thing about Ronin is that that they are very fast and agile, able to run across the tabletop without any penalties and such. Not only that Ronin is Hard to Kill, but it also is Harmless, allowing you to move more freely as opponent is not likely to attack this model.
