Hi All,

This article is for those like me that thought boardgames were just wargames where the die roll was for shoting and kill something or pieces and counters were Soldiers, Tanks, Helis and Grenades (I love the grenades effects when scatter around the target ).

The other day a friend from the gaming group brought a game called EVO (Eurogames). All of us were surprised for the cover. Even more we became surprised when he started to teach the rules: "You are responsible for a race of Dinos 400.000 years ago....bla,bla". Come on we wanted blood, Aliens, grenades,... Why we need those Skins, Umbrellas, Gens,etc...?

After the first turn everything came up clear and fun. There were some Dinos around the map trying to locate for the best place regarding the clima. And the best was the aspect of my race with attachments along its back.

Well after this first game I began to search here in BGG for similar games and now instead of buying only wargames I began to diversify and bought some of those Eurogames: Lost Valley, Valley of Mammoth and Evo. Despite this discover I've just bought also Air Cav and MBT (Well I need sometimes Hardcore Fire!).

Well I hope this little article helps others to discover another type of boargames not more or less fun but different fun and different ways to do strategies and to beat others.

Thanks to my friend to discover those hidden treasures to us.

Crusher100.

Paychecks and available wall space for shelves, too. If you're married, you'd better start helping more around the house to keep the lady in a good humor when she finds "You've brought home ANOTHER one? TWO?!"blush
