Terra Mystica, Quick Pics Post

The game; Terra Mystica.  The beer; Highland Brewing
Player mat up front, game board in the background
The spirit of brotherhood, the spirit of giving
The 'terra' of the game; matching your race to their biome
Controlling, terraforming, conquering, building...it's all here
Last of the quick pics posts, or at least the ones that were queued up.  The game is Terra Mystica and after playing this just one time I was in love and sought it out immediately.  So much replay value, so much in the box, fantastic components, and a ruleset that just doesn't quit.  There's so much to this game I could do an entire series of posts on it, but that's a tale for another time.  Enjoy!

Roman Seas, Quick Pics Post

A big ole game of Roman Seas
One of the ships, made from paper with lead figs riding on top
About as quick pic as it gets with just two photos, which doesn't do this great game with fantastic models any justice at all.  This naval scenario had one fleet trying to run a blockade while also avoiding shallow areas that could ground the larger ships.  This was a hard fought battle and once contact was made it got to be quite a frenzy of ballista, boarding, and ramming.  Enjoy!

Krosmaster, Quick Pics Post

Kassius Kaos slinging poison gas bombs!
It's a boardgame that plays and feels like a videogame
Grid based movement and multi-combat action
The quality of the pre-painted figs is top notch
Components laid out in the box
Today's quick pics post centers around a boardgame called Krosmaster Arena.  This was picked up as a Kickstarter game but it's pretty widespread now.  It's a fun game, plays fast, and has that chibi-style that has drawn me to a similar game, Super Dungeon Explore.  Of course this one comes painted and it seems the draw here is to collect the different types of characters as singles.
