Board Game: Runewars Miniatures Game

Luke and Thomas hosted a game of Runewars Miniatures - Fantasy Rank & Flank
Mass fantasy battles in the realm of Terrinoth. The game uses a dial-based initiative system (an evolution of x-wing, for those familiar with it) to resolve activations, with each unit locking in its action at the beginning of the round. Play proceeds in initiative order, with different actions taking place early and late. Not only does this create a tense fog of war effect, but it gives concrete mechanics to each unit, bringing their theme to life with gameplay. Can you guess your opponent's plan and stay one step ahead?

Board Game: Final Argument of Kings

Dennis hosted a game of Napoleonic Wars – Iberian Peninsula - The Final Argument of Kings
When diplomacy fails, kings and emperors will resort to their final arguments: heavy artillery. The Spaniards rebel against their French occupiers in 1808, forcing the French army to carry out multiple atrocities, so well depicted by Goya in his paintings in the Prado Museum. The French turn their attention again to Portugal and soundly defeat the Portuguese army at the Battle of Porto in March 1809. Fleeing Portuguese regiments and Spanish guerrillas join a small British vanguard at the cross-roads outside Lisbon in an attempt to stop the hated French invaders.

Board Game: The Men Who Would Be Kings: Colonial Wargaming Rules

Colin hosted a game of The Men Who Would Be Kings
The Battle of Ridgeway (Fenian Raids 1866)

Historical refight of the clash between Irish American Fenian raiders versus Canadian Militia. Both sides are seeking glory by sweeping the enemy from the field before the arrival of British regulars, one to avoid fighting them and the other to claim all the glory for themselves. Rough veterans of America’s bloody civil war fighting for Irish independence pitted against inexperienced but plucky defenders of the Empire!
