Warband Review

As a player in Warband: Against the Darkness, you control the warband armies of one of the great fantasy races of the Five Realms. Although the great races are currently working together in mutual defense, old habits and rivalries are hard to break and this isn’t in any way a co-operative game.

Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game

This is a cooperative card game that simulates the claustrophobic and intense combat of Space Hulk proper. Corey Konieczka does a masterful job in bringing that trademark intensity to the surface with a number of key mechanics while avoiding the baggage of attempting to directly simulate aspects of its predecessor.

It is a game of critters in tanks and they do “pew pew pew”. Our armymals are very special creatures: they drive tanks and have strong personalities just like the noble leaders of the past. In Armymals you will meet dozens of characters like Narwhaleon Bonaparte, Abrahamster Lincoln or Lionidas – each with its own unique artwork and thematic abilities. The game is an action packed, fast strategy experience. Brightly coloured tanks move across a hexagon-tiled battlefield filled with three-dimensional scenery representing trees, barns etc. The colourful board and the …
