I have loved this game for many years and its many editions. It is easy and fun. The game is fairly simple but has options for winning. There are plenty of expansions for it. If they are all added, it is hard to even take advantage of them during game play. It can be played by a lot of people at once, but the more people that play,the more some house rules to speed it up might need to be implemented. The one down side is that the game can take a really long time to play.

This game is so simple to learn the rules for, it literally takes 2 minutes. You create a timeline with the cards as you go. You are dealt 5 cards at the beginning of the game. You cant look at the times on them until you guess. The first person to run out of cards first wins! If you guess wrong, you discard the card, and draw another one. If two or more people run out of cards on the same turn, those people keep going until someone guesses wrong and only 1 person is out of cards. It is amazing how you can forget when something was created or happened when you just saw it a few minutes earlier.

I cannot give a lengthy review of the game, but I demoed it at Gencon 2012. It was pretty fun, You get to pick one of several different kinds of mages. It is a somewhat strategic game that uses cards, a game board, and dice. Depending on the wizard you use (mine was a fire wizard) you cast mage specific spells. The druid had a bear that was tough as nails, and I had a werewolf pet(pretty awesome). I’m pretty sure that once you cast the spells, you cant cast them again. You can make your animals/monsters battle each other, or you can go after the opposing wizard. I think health started at 25. The demo only lasted an hour, and we didn’t get to get into much wizard bashing. the components are illustrated very well, and this is a game that I can see myself playing, but not on a regular basis. I think it could get old fast if played to much.

I have been mesmerized by Citadel Miniatures since the mid 1980’s, The height of playability for this game was second edition, and the majority of third edition. It is a very expensive game to keep up with, but most mass combat miniature games are. The miniatures for Warhammer 40k are great, they continue to improve every year, but the power creep is constant and the rules are sub par, and at times very bad or contradictory. You will find that after a few years, your army gets replaced with a new set of sculpts and constantly changing rules. The amount of power gamers drawn to 40k is higher than most other miniature games, and the game is targeted at a younger audience. Be prepared to go up against young teenagers at the game store once you get your army ready to roll. If you just want the miniatures, you cant go wrong.

The game is simple and, it is a good time and fun to play on the fly. Each game gets very cut throat in the end as the helicopter lands, and you try to be the first to get to it. You will back stab your friends and laugh as they get sent back to the starting tile. No matter how hard you try to get close to where you think the helicopter will end up at, it never seems to land where you think it will. The components are simple, but they are pretty good, the tiles are top down and the art is good. You can collect enough dead zombies for the win, but you will probably die in the process!

This game brings good elements of role playing to a fun board game, it keeps you on the edge of your seat as you get closer to more danger as your cheese wheel fills up! With story elements that draw you in, it makes you want to achieve your quests and gets you into your characters. The presence of side quests means that you can help yourself out for future adventures by taking a little extra time to go and help others out along the way. The game cleverly wraps components around a world that would be very dangerous for a mouse such as the cat, birds, and old ladies with broom sticks. The miniatures are nicely sculpted, and the board tiles are very nice as well with a nice twist on flipping tiles to go above or below ground. I highly recommend trying this game and cant wait for it to come out in September.
