Our gaming group played a round of the Game of Thrones board game the other night and had a blast.

Our game focused mostly on combat, but I think future games will emphasize more on diplomacy and deal making. Board position is very important and the limited number of army figures will mean that you will have to be careful where you keep your armies.

The art work and board design is very nice. Some players complained a bit about the playing pieces, but I think they are OK, if a bit simple.

The game is for 3-6 players and I think the more, the merrier.

Gaming Update

Since finishing school I have been able to do quite a bit of gaming. I have started with quite a few board games. Recently I have been able to play Legendary, the Marvel card game, Call of Cthulhu card game, Battleship Galaxies, A Touch of Evil, Level 7, Civilization, Descent 2, Tzolk'in, Ygdrassil, and many others. I hope to post some mini reviews soon. Lots of good stuff out there!

The biggest thing has been Star Wars Roleplaying. I ran a d20 campaign a few years ago set in the Old Republic. The guys wanted to have a game set in the Rebellion Era, so we took the new book from Fantasy Flight and started running a few weeks ago. The new system is nice and forces the players to take part in the descriptions of the action. A very fine system and the new book is gorgeous.

Some of the guys are also interested in starting an Iron Kingdoms RPG. I have made a character for the system, but no firm date yet on when it will start up.

No minis yet, but I hope to get some painting done before Gencon to make room for some new purchases!
