Played Demo on Friday, will go down well with most of my game group - 90 mins civ(ish) eurowargame, in the same sense as Antike is a conflict game.

Played demo on Thursday great game from small publisher. Bit like King of Siam with additional actions able to be won as well as fixed original ones. Hope this gets picked up by a bigger publisher. Went to wood bits seller and upgraded the paper pieces.

Played again on Friday - 2 plays

Had demo at QWG booth resulting in purchase and played Friday night.
Nothing new but good implementation of a light Caylus with role selection.

Now played 3 times, more gunfight with each play

Purchased on strength of Portal's game description. Played once, great Eurogame that really is also a wargame. If you like the idea of a 2 hour game about defending/storming a castle that works on Euro game mechanisms give it a try

Could not get an English Demo as not picked up by English publisher and Eggertspiele mostly catering for German language version. However many of my favouite games have Eggerspiele on the box so took a punt.
