@Hai

Congrats on your new lovely mask!

War of the Ring has had my eye for a while. There is nothing wrong with Village that I can see, but the WotR definitely is more interesting of the two for me.

Thanks for yet another installment of exporables!

…and now it worked for me all of a sudden.

Just one game away from the Rosetta Stone! So close!

Gaze on the Face of Agamemnon! For I wear the Mask today!!!!!

Mwaauuhahahaha!

Thank you @Ladycovichi for I couldn’t have done it without your Sacred Shelf spotlight.

Banner day – snazzy mask and up an Explorer level so more wish list shelving. 🙂

I am surprised that War of the Ring hasn’t gotten more past reviews in this joint- it has got legs. Didn’t FanFlight once put out a nifty collector’s super deluxe painted set to be gazed upon with envious eyes …and then ball the whole thing up for a reboot a year or two later?

@thegordonshow – they should definitely work for you. I completed the exploration with those links. If it’s just not working for you, we’ll need input from Jim…

So clicking on the Game Site and the Rulebook doesn’t work to give me exploration points for the War of the Ring.
Is that happening to anyone else?

These are both games that could definitely fall flat for various game group tastes. This is the problem for someone, such as myself, who enjoys everything from heavy Euros like Kanban to simple fair like Sushi Go. I also enjoy abstracts and roll-heavy Ameritrash (Ingenious and Descent respectively). Many party games I like only go over well with non-gamer guests from out of town. I have several game groups I foster for this reason…one of them being my own family. What a wonderful world we gamers live in. Game on!

I sooooo wanted to like War of the Ring since I’m a big LotR fan. The game is simply gorgeous. However, IMHO it is too scripted and long for what it is.

I like Village but have trouble getting it to the table. It’s a fairly heavy game which presents many options. It takes a few plays to sort through everything.

@Andross,

Which is which?

Interesting choices, one is a game I will refuse to play again, the other is a game I’ve been dying to find anyone willing to play again. 😛

Whereas last week the explorables were very close in engine-building gameplay…these games are pretty far apart. One is a Worker placement Euro. The other is basically a war game in a fantasy setting. Both are excellent games in their genre.
