Frostgrave is one of the hottest games on the market, featuring a fast and furious combat system that children can understand.  Frostgrave was created by Joseph McCullough and published by Osprey Games.

Frostgrave is a phenom.

Odin’s Ravens from Osprey Games is a race around the world.  It uses card to create an environment where outwitting your opponent may be the only way to win.  It takes seconds to learn and only minutes to play.

Would you believe the simplicity of this game is pretty complicated?  Well, the tactics that can be created certainly are, and you can out think yourself.

My friends and I play Escape From the Aliens in Outerspace at Adepticon.  As you will see it is a blind movement bluffing game.  While I have only played it once, I believe it can turn into a very intense game where you might just out think yourself.

Special thanks to Christian and Joe for demonstrating this and taking time out of their schedule for us.

Matt takes his first look at Odin’s Ravens.  On the video I said the game had a bgg rank of 150.  The information given to me was incorrect, it’s currently ranked 850.  Anyway it’s a game about racing around the world using a card driven mechanic.

I have played it half a dozen times now and I can’t believe how close the games have been.

Joseph talks with me about the ride that has been and is Frostgrave.  Frostgrave is published by Osprey Publishing.

Over the next few months, I will be picking out my wizards for each school of magic.  Come back soon and see what I have to say.

first blitzFirst Blitz: Bombing London in the First World War

$19.95

 

This book tells the story of Germany’s strategic air offensive against Britain, and how it came to be neutralized. The first Zeppelin attack on London came in May 1915 – and with it came the birth of a new arena of warfare, the ‘home front’. German airships attempted to raid London on 26 separate occasions between May 1915 and October 1917, but only reached the capital and bombed successfully on nine occasions.

 

From May 1917 onwards, this theatre of war entered a new phase as German Gotha bombers set out to attack London in the first bomber raid. London’s defenses were again overhauled to face this new threat, providing the basis for Britain’s defense during World War II.

 

This comprehensive volume tells the story of the first aerial campaign in history, as the famed Zeppelins, and then the Gotha and the massive Staaken ‘Giant’ bombers waged war against the civilian population of London in the first ever ‘Blitz’.
