Flawed gem. This could have been a fantastic game - the feel of a CCG combined with a tactical combat game.

I strongly suspect it is 'better' on a computer.

What I don't like
- setup (pain to build the map, and the way the tiles are printed it makes sense to lay them portrait rather than landcape, unlike the rulebook)
- rulebook, quite hard to learn the game from it
- card stock, my cards are already chipping and showing wear
- lack of deckbuilding, other than the preset decks 'A', 'B' etc and one scenario where you rochester draft. I'd have preferred more variety in cards and not using a shared spell deck.
- having to mark cards to show their status (moved, shielded, etc) is a bit of a pain, again much easier on a PC

What I do like, pretty much everything else!

This feels like a port of a computer game, I think they could have rethought some of the mechanics to work better in a card/board enviroment. But I still like it!

Like Panzer General the combat is a bit procedural, but the art is great, theme is great, and its pretty good solo.

After one play. I expect this will go up with more experience as the first play ran fairly long due to reading cards and the horribly organized rules. It does seem to have a lot of potential, though, with the large number of cards and map tiles to play with.

Once you swallow the mechanics, this game offers nice depth and challenge for two players. Of course, it's longer and more complicated than Summoner Wars, and can feel almost like a PC engine. But, everything I want, is there.

Note: It feels that way because it was made by a PC game developer. Funny.

Once you get a good grasp on the rules and more importantly rules sequence, the game is decent. After I took a player aid from the files here and then added my own notes the game flowed much better. Bought it on sale because it had solo play and that is what I've enjoyed it for so far.

Card fantasy battle that can be rewarding if you put the effort into exploring the cards and absorbing the rules. I like the scenario aspect and the way the playing field sets up differently each time.

Clever rendition of the XBox Live title. Slow, but decent.

Now that I have tried this system a few times (this and the panzer series), I appreciate it a bit more. I really like the CCG feel of the cards, the artwork is nice, and its a solid, fun tactical game.

Played this game on XBox360 but have not gotten the actual card game to the table. It is a neat concept and the game is fun to play.

Beautifully rendered pieces, plenty of material so it won't get stale... BUT, for a 1-2 player game, its set-up time is longer than the game itself, and that's accounting for the overly complicated combat mechanics. With the right opposition and familiarity, this game could be quite fun; without it, though, it becomes too much a slog.

PLUS: cards, variety in scenarios
BIG MINUS: overly complicated combat mechanic, set up length

Rules need a major overhaul if anyone is going to know how to play the solo or 2player game. Might as well have been written in a foreign language.
