It's been way too long since I had the pleasure of visiting the halls of joy and games in the Red Herring. The theme was all about fantasy and quite a few brave heroes crawled out of the woodwork bearing games of Sword & Sorcerey . . .

Here is what we played ...

Why not join us for a game ?

Played Pantheon and enjoyed it very much. I would have preferred some more historical tie-ins but it is a generic theme after all. There might be a slight runaway leader (or lack of catch-up mechanism) issue, but that will be clarified after multiple plays, Good Stuff.

Next up was Spectral Rails and I did not dig the theme at all. Strange, considering that it is about Ghost trains delivering souls of the dead, but I found it odd and irritating that it does actually play like a regular train game (with a few exceptions). I'd rather play a train-themed train game. That being said, the game was okay, but I am pretty positive we made a few mistakes, because some things did not feel quite right.

I have heard a lot about this game and boy does it look interesting. A big tower with cubes hidden in it ? I have no idea how to play it but people seemed to have fun. I hope it makes another appearance.

A suitably long and epic game of Runebound !



"Just played the one *epic* game of Runebound (2nd Ed, no expansions) - brilliant fun! Got off to a slightly belated start and consequently ended up having to 'call it' for Alex probably one turn early. Thanks to Paul, Mark and Alex for sticking with it, hopefully enjoyed it as much as me (-:" Simon via LOB

"Not 5 stars because we did not have the time to finish our game and I could not become Master of the World! But thx to our great teacher Jeff!"
Roger via LOB

"Runebound, which was a lot of fun. Sure, the end is a little tricky and the game runs too long (the pub had to throw us out) but it's an enjoyable adventure game with plenty of upsets and narrow squeaks. Thanks to Simon." Paul via LOB

Another on-theme game. I never played the newer edition (Never enjoyed the older edition). It does look very similar ? What are the differences apart from the production values and artwork etc ?

When Gabe, Paul and Lloyd decide they have to be standing to play a game you know the shit is about to get real. This looked very whacky, a flicking/strategy game ? Sounds too good to be true. Is it actually any good ?

It looked like the two brave dungeon-crawlers wielded an iPad on top of their axes and sandals, I did not know there is an app for this game out there.
