2014 Last Games

We played a few games during Christmas. The idea was to have fun with quick games so we tested Eight-Minutes Empire and Draco Mundis.
Two good choices...


Sengoku Jidai

For the moment I read a lot about this Warring State period. To better understand the context I play some battles using Samurai (by GMT Games) and Ran (also by GMT).


Mice & Mystics

My 5 years old son and I are fan of Mouse Guard So Mice and Mystics is, for us, the game to play (before painting and playing with Splintered Light Miniatures minis).

We played the first two chapters of the story book. A very pleasant experience…

The components are impressive.

Wargame: Hold the Line

Hold the Line deals with the American Revolutionary War. It's a wargame with simple rules but full of decision-making. Quick and fun. All in all, a good tool to initiate somebody to strategic thinking.

Below, the battle of Harlem Heights:


Song of Blades and Heroes: Prehistoric War

I recently discovered SoBH. I'm a Two Hour Wargames fan but SoBH is a very cool game too. So I prepared two quick games to play with my buddies: Seb & François.

Game 1. Two clans are fighting for food...

Spear clan (right) against Axe & Club clan (left).

and the winner is… Spear clan.

Game 2. Fighting for women

The Red Hand Clan is looking for women. Tounga and his tribe (Stone Moon Clan) have to fight their way to liberty. The Red Hand warriors aren't ready to let the women get away…

The Stone Moon clan is at the right edge.

The women are safe for the moment.


Warriors of the Red Hand clan are approaching.


 The women are attempting to flee.

Only one woman (out of three) managed to flee… Most of Stone Moon clan warriors are dead or wounded.
