Blood Bowl is not a new game. It was first released back in 1986; that’s 30 years ago! It’s been through a few iterations with a new edition released late last year. There was even a period when the game was no longer officially supported. The fans stepped up and kept the torch burning. Leagues were held and rules were refined and for many years the game just kept going from strength to strength. Just what makes it so special?
Sans Alliés is a solo wargame. You’re the commander of the good guys in a war against an evil enemy that’s trying to build their ultimate weapon. The race is on to topple their regime before they wipe you out.
Seafall is a Legacy game. In a nutshell it’s a game that evolves, decisions you make in 1 game will carry though into future games. They often tell a story with a definite starting and end point. During the course of which you will mark the board or cards and even throw away or destroy game components.
The first time I played this game was co-op with a friend in a very busy store on games night. It was a hard fought game which came down to a extremely tense die roll. We sat on the edge of our seats as Annas cast the die. We shouted, we jumped and high fived. We didn’t care if anyone looked, it was awesome.
