  1. This month I added Ultimate Railroads, Flamecraft and Endless Winter. Super excited to finally get a crack at Russian Railroads as it’s been on my to try list for years!

  2. I can totally relate to those red flags in War Bonds – rules heavy, too many components etc usually leads me to feel a bit despondent, if not nauseated. But sometimes you surprise me – Ark Nova and Brazil were to your liking.

  3. I would encourage you to review whatever interests you but my guess (after watching what must be hundreds of your videos) is that you will not enjoy a traditional war game set in what looks like a fantasy universe that obtw takes at minimum 90 minutes to play. You are pretty much a dyed in the wool euro gamer & that particular game looks to be a niche (wargame) within a niche (fantasy universe setting). Idk, you might surprise me but I tend to think not haha. You are also one that does not lean towards games w/ a lot of rules overhead so that might be another strike. I tried a number of war games this year for the first time & what I found was that I like the ones on the lighter end of the scale w/ some euro mechancis thrown in like Undaunted & Memoir 44 but I found that the ones I tried that were heavier, more traditional war games had larger barriers to entry ie., rules overhead, excessive fiddliness, etc. I find it becomes too much to manage at times & I just end up gravitating towards simpler, more streamlined gameplay. Your game group matters, too, & mine just does not have a taste for the hardcore war game genre. YMMV of course.

  4. I appreciate your opinion whether it's a game you gravitate towards or not. I would be interested in you take on Warbonds. I personally like to try different things and have unique experiences and I believe you do to. Of course if you don't tend to like those games and it turns you then the praise will be that much more compelling.

  5. Nice! My own purchases this month: The new Palaces of Carrara, Marrakesh Deluxe Edition, Amsterdam Deluxe Edition, Tiletum and Tinner´s Trail.

  6. I got Municipium, but sadly not played it yet. Got Caesar's Empire last week.
