Unboxing Victoria Cross II from Worthington Games

Unboxing Victoria Cross II from Worthington Games

Billy Riley, 17 September 2020 ~ #UnboxingDay

There are some battles in history that draw a certain respect due to the adversity faced.

The 6 Day War with an almost defenceless Israel and rapid, massive deployment turning certain defeat from a larger enemy into an unexpected victory.

Victoria Cross II
The Battles of Rorke’s Drift and Isandlwana
Worthington Games

The Falklands Conflict where a numerically superior, entrenched invader was ousted by a smaller force at the absolute limit of it’s supply chain, with minimal air support.

This game contains two others – The Battle of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift. I have to forget the imperialism that was going on at the time in order to not feel guilty about my respect for these battles.

Isandlwana was a small professional British force (circa 2000 troops), well armed with artillery and arrogant commanders facing a much larger (circa 15,000) Zulu warriors.

Rorke’s Drift was an even smaller professional British force (circa 150) with decent commanders facing a smaller enemy force than was at Isandlwana but still considerably outnumbered by their enemy (circa 4000).

Classic Reviews: 7 Wonders mobile version

Classic Reviews: 7 Wonders mobile version

Brant Guillory, 3 September 2020

My love for 7 Wonders is pretty well-documented.  My biggest gripe with it has always been that it’s pain to pull multiple people together for a game session, because the game plays pretty poorly with only two people (and hence the creation of 7 Wonders: Duel).  But if you wanted to play the original as a digital game, without having to drag up three friends, clear a table, and shuffle a bunch of cards, you were stuck.  There was a really crappy, borderline-illegal Game of Thrones/7 Wonders mashup that you could get through the Amazon app store, but that was it.

Until now. (more…)
