Were your teeth clenched from the action, or because you were recreating the brutally-cold winter?

Gaming Nostalgia – Cast Your Own Figures!

#TBT at GrogHeads!

The problem was never casting your own figures.  That was actually kind of fun.  The first problem was that there were only so many drummers you needed.  The second problem was that you had to find a source of lead to use in them, or else figure out which other figures you were going to melt down and recycle.

Sword & Sorcery: Immortal Souls – First Look!

Another new box-full-o’-minis in an oversize tabletop dungeon crawl ~

Michael Eckenfels, 21 March 2017

There’s about sixteen billion board games now dealing with dungeon crawls and sporting cool minis, or enough to choke a bag of holding – whichever reference you get first.

I’ve since realized I was expecting an RPG experience

I hadn’t heard of Sword & Sorcery before (go figure). According to BGG’s page, this game “is an epic -fantasy cooperative board game in which 1-5 players fight together against the forces of evil, which are controlled by the game itself.”

This last bit was enough to intrigue me. I’d had a momentary flirtation with the D&D games; specifically with Castle Ravenloft, which I played, and Temple of Elemental Evil, which I have yet to play. These D&D games struck me as too simplistic, but I’ve since realized I was expecting an RPG experience, and was disappointed because of it. I need to revisit those games with a different outlook on what to expect.

This one, though, seemed pretty cool for a variety of reasons. Not only the “1-5 player” aspect of it, which is admittedly a huge selling point for me (I like running multiple players in cooperative games), but also because this game has a lot of Galaxy Defenders (another game) in it. And it should, because Gremlin Productions created both of these games.

There’s also the 8.3 rating on BGG, which is impressive in and of itself, as well as the 95 (!) videos covering it, as well as over twelve hundred threads in the BGG page for it. Not bad for a game that was just released in 2017.

For a final reason, the minis are cool as hell, as you will see momentarily.
