It's New Game Friday! David Wiley (Cardboard Clash) is here to tell us about the new games.
Here’s what is new this week:
- Iron Helm: Adventure Pack 4: Crystal Caverns
Game of the Week: A Rusty Throne
King Alric is mad, everyone knows that; a rusty mind on a rusty throne. As the heir to Prydon's northern highlands, the troubles of court are far away for you until the King has your father executed for a treason he didn't commit. Pledging to end his reign, you march to war. The other Lords of the land stand with the King for now; no matter, you will take their castles by force. The King has more men, more resources and more power, but you have friends at court, spies who can influence the King's military decisions. Perhaps that will be enough, if the flames of heaven will it.
This one I’ve played and really, really enjoyed. If you like diceless combat, simple yet challenging AI opponents, and “dudes on a map” area control, then this one has a ton of promise for you. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran of wargames, or new to them as a whole genre, this should be a very accessible title to try out while offering plenty of depth for experienced players. If you’ve never tried a wargame with a CDG (Card-driven game) mechanic, you’re in for a treat. If you enjoy how it functions here, I can give some great next-step recommendations (such as Watergate!).
