Hi guys. So I've decided to make a YouTube video for my top ten favorite card art for every set in Anachronism. I've even included a bit of historical information for each of my choices. Here's my first video (Set 1):

https://youtu.be/SDbGQ7W_KDM

I plan on releasing a video for all 7 sets in the coming months. I also have videos of my Anachronism collection on my channel for anyone interested.

Good idea I don't play the game anymore, but I love to pull out the cards and read them, sometimes learning something I forgot, and extending my research further on the net. The artworks you picked are indeed great ones !

Still got some cards missing to complete the collection though : some knowledge eludes me ! laugh

Nice video, looking forward to the rest. The combination of history and beautiful artwork was the reason i got interested in the game. Speaking of which, there is kickstarter project running right now that has the same combination. It is called 1066, tears to many mothers. It is a card game about The Battle of Hastings. This is what they say about future plans.

"We would love to continue this series of Alt Wars games and deliver all new theatres of conflict such as Agincourt, The Siege of Malta, The Spanish Armada, etc.  You could even create fantasy conflicts between various eras, such as Normans Vs Ottomans!  Your help in funding could make this a reality"

Anachronism 2.0?

Anachronism 2.0?

This looks like something more akin to Pocket Battles: Celts vs. Romans from which you can pick the Romans and pit them against the Macedonians from Pocket Battles: Macedonians vs. Persians

The art for this 1066 game looks terrific, but seriously, couldn't they avoid the modern-looking women ?

I'm gonna have a closer look at the game nonetheless... if it has some kind of retail plans, I'll probably wait for it.

Fearsome Reputation looks so much like a Magic card laugh

I love the cards for the flavor and history tidbits they provide, but I hate that they made them all foil. Some art is way too hard to appreciate in that style, and many cards are just lost in "foilisation"... Good thing to have seen them like this in your video.
