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.

IHMIn Her Majesty’s Name is a miniatures war game that is set in a steam pink setting of 1895. Small bands of of figures are assembled to fight over the objectives you establish. This is a skirmish game where you will generally field not more than ten models per player. Written by by Craig Cartmell and Charles Murton the book totals 64 pages costs about 15.00 and is also available as a pdf. If you know of any book published by Osprey publishing you already know the quality you’re getting.

This Skirmish game can be bloody quick. I’ve had games last as little as 15 minutes or as long as an hour. Play is pretty smooth, it uses an alternate activation system where models take turns following the model play of move and shoot.

Seven7s From Eagle Games This June

7Seven7s

$11.99

 

The magic number 7 holds meanings, powers and coincidences dating back to the dawn of time. In Seven7s you have the powers of 7 of the most famous 7s in history. Use these powers carefully to defeat your opponents.

 

Each player has a hand of 3 cards throughout the game. Each turn players will play 1 card to the 7 columns and then redraw to 3 cards at the end of their turn.

 

When one of the 7 columns is full of 7 cards the game ends and the player holding the most points wins.

 

Through thoughtful card play wielding the powers of 7, players vie to strengthen their hands while diminishing the hands of their opponents. Perhaps 7’s and 6’s are reduced to no value through the Ages of Man; or, all Indigo cards are now valued at 7 because of the Colors of the Rainbow power. Maybe you are forced to discard your most valuable card by the 7 Deadly Sins or your opponent’s appeal to the Lucky Gods garners him some bonus victory points.

 

Play is quick with lots of surprises. Do you have what it takes to harness the powers of the Seven7s or has your luck run out?

 

2-4 players

Ages 7+

meteorMeteor

$35.00

 

There is a storm of meteors heading directly toward our planet! Estimated time of impact is five minutes. We need to work together to destroy them all or the world will be blown to bits. Are you brave and resourceful enough to save our planet? If even one meteor gets through our defenses and hits the planet, life as we know it will be no more. Good luck citizens. It’s up to you.

 

You need to work together building and launching rockets as the time ticks down and the meteors get closer and closer to destroying the planet. Will you blow up all the meteors in time? Only one way to know for sure.

 

Meteor plays as a real-time card game. Each player has a hand of cards and a build area (build areas are shared in the five player game). A number of meteor cards are placed in the center of the table. Players must cooperatively build rockets to launch at the meteors before the time runs out.

 

Meteor is a real-time, cooperative, resource management card game.

black wolfDWEX18 The Black Wolf Aerial Battle Group

As his horde of Mercenaries grows, Captain Vladimir Nikinov, or the ‘Black Wolf’ as he is infamously known, has now complemented his deadly naval forces with a devastating Aerial  Battle Group. At the heart of this new force is the massive and most intimidating Retribution Sky Fortress, one of the most impressive flying models in the world of Dystopian Wars.
The Retribution is designed to act as a mobile command centre for Nikinov should be choose to leave his famed Death Bringer Submarine, and as such the Retribution hammers enemy models with withering fore weapons, brutal rocket batteries and crushing bomb attacks. In support of this beast are three Chimera medium airships, also armed with fore guns and rocket batteries, and supporting these are five small Wrath airships, armed with fore and aft turrets.
The arrival of aerial mobility to Black Wolf forces makes them an even more dangerous foe to fight off, both as a standalone force or as mercenaries hired by the various nations of the Dystopian World. Only one fleet is spurned by Nikinov, that of the Russian Coalition, the Admirals of which have orders to kill the Black Wolf on sight.
Contains: 1 Retribution Class Sky Fortress, 3 Chimera Class Medium Airships, 5 Wraith Class Airships, 16 SAS Tokens, 3 Movement Trays & Micro Dice, 1 TAC Deck and Tokens & Templates. Models supplied unpainted and unassembled.

steamSteam Torpedo: First Contact

$29.99

The First World War has lasted for ten years without any country taking the upper hand and no one can foresee how it shall end. Telin gas, an experimental weapon developed in secrecy, has been used by all armies, either to threaten or to punish and a dangerous game of cat and mouse has ensued.

 

On each continent, vast portions of territories have become toxic no man’s land. Whole provinces are isolated and states are divided. In many cases, neither men nor goods can travel by land anymore and sea control has become vital. In this context, each faction is developing a new generation of submarines in an effort to survive and dominate the seas.

 

In this war torn world, players must balance the need for oxygen, speed, and torpedoes while their crew does their best to defend against the enemy ship in Steam Torpedo: First Contact.

 

Before facing his opponent, each player builds his or her own submarine by selecting ten tiles to outfit the different compartments. Shielding, faster engine or firepower: each submarine will thus be unique, and players will need to develop their own strategy!

 

On the game board, each submarine is represented by a model indicating its position relative to the enemy (front, back or side) and distance (in contact or away). During the battle, players use their five crew members to enable the compartments of their submarine. Various effects can be triggered, in particular to inflict devastating damage to the enemy submarine. A player wins by destroying the control room of the opposing submarine or by eliminating all opposing crew members.

 

Ages 13+
