I got to play this with 2 other guys at WBC - one who, like me, had never played before and another guy who was really into it. I definitely had a lot of fun playing this, I loved the theme, but things became really unmanageable really quickly. There were just far too many abilities active on the cards at one time to keep track of - even the experienced player seemed overwhelmed and would need to retroactively apply effects we overlooked. Still, quite fun to play.

Purchased this for $15 including an extra, unopened bag of 100 zombie minis. I have never played before but I am definitely planning on breaking this out with a more casual gaming crowd this Halloween over some pumpkin beers.

$5 in the Auction Store. Picked it up because it sounded like it could be interesting, but after reading a bit about it I don't think I will ever end up playing. I think this one will end up being sold, traded, or salvaged for bits.

$5 at the auction store and this looks tremendously fun for some light filler. If nothing else, the dice it comes with are awesome!

$12 at the auction store. I've never played and have heard very mixed opinions on this game. Looking forward to giving it a try.

We got to run a few demos for our game at WBC this year and got some very good feedback. The wooden longship game pieces were definitely catching people's interest, and the people who stopped in to play seemed to really enjoy it. I was very encouraged by a few players who went out of their way to mention how well the game captured the theme - which is a HUGE goal for the game. Looking forward to running some more of these in the future :-)

This was one of the two tournaments I played in. We played 2 games in the qualifying round. I won the first game and came in 3rd (of 4) in the second game. Ultimately, our 4 ended up with very close Advancement Point scores: 0, 10.1 (me), 10.2, and 10.3. There was a chance I could have moved on to the next round but I had too much other gaming to do to stick around and find out. Great fun!

$14 - But it was the wrong version! I'll probably sell, trade, or keep for the hundreds of minis this comes with.

$30 in the auction. Already a great deal, but upon opening the box I found some beautiful, hand painted minis. Haven't played it yet, but this one will definitely be hitting the table... and soon.

$12 in the auction store. Bought because the box and theme looked amazing, but was pretty disappointed upon opening the box and seeing the lackluster components. Not sure if this one will hit the table or not.

And last, but certainly not least, the highlight of my WBC '13 experience: Warparty. I played in the demo and then in one tournament round. Didn't win, but had a lot of fun playing.

This game feels like an old-school pc rts - but in turn-based board game form. Think Risk meets Warcraft. The variety in the races was subtle but more than enough to make them play very differently. Everything felt balanced and well tested. I also loved that this was 2v2 rather than one massive free-for-all melee. We played the "Quick-Play" variant which seemed like the perfect game length. With an experienced group I could see this coming in right around 90 minutes which is perfect for my group - so I bought this after playing. Can't wait to introduce my friends to this one.
