Hey guys!

I'm looking to buy a new game for my wife and I to enjoy with some friends for the new year. She likes card drafting and dice games, with combat, strategy and fantasy settings usually.

Mage Knight hits a lot of the right notes but it's a bit heavy for our usual board game nights. Gloomhaven seems fun, but again too heavy for what we are looking for.

I looked into Wildlands and it seems like again it hits a lot of the right notes, but there is no card drafting and the combat is a bit too simple to be perfect.

Does anyone have anything they could recommend?

Thank a lot in advance!

Card drafting + combat + strategy + fantasy* = Blood Rage

*OK, so it may not be "fantasy" in a pure sense - it's Vikings - but there are a load of fantastical creatures to recruit.

Well, Card drafting + combat + strategy + fantasy* = Inis!

Inis, imho is more strategical than Blood Rage and works better at low player counts.

Mechs Vs Minions has card drafting and dice.
Dice Forge has custom dice. (That's like a combination of both mechanics rolled into one.)
Valeria - Card Kingdoms also uses these mechanisms.

All of these are highly rated and reviewed quite thoroughly so you can investigate which will work for you.
