Medival Death and Destruction
August 22, 2004

My Dad picked up this game at a yard sale, a rare and wonderful treasure ! My 12 year old son and I

have had many pleasurable hours with this one.

We like to leave the 'dead' on the field as it adds to the game for us. Of course we do sound

effects and mingle in snippets from Braveheart and

Monty Python's Holy grail for good measure.

It reminds me of playing Statego when I was a kid,

its a bit like chess as well. We really like it,

the soldiers are grim and reasonably accurate with

armor and weapons. We need to get another one so we can double up all our units for some serious carnage !

 
 
 
 
 
pretty simple, pretty cool

I bought this game for 5 Euros in Germany and I was surprized to find that is much fun to play. It comes into 2 versions (ligth and not so light). It is actually a chess-risk hybrid since every type of piece (King, knights, archers, soldiers plus farmers, warriors, mercenaries) has its own qualities, but dice rolling decides each battle. Basic strategy can be developed. As a conclusion, it's an easy to play, catchy battle game for 2 players.

Lying Heart
August 15, 2002

I bought this game 2 years ago from Toys R Us for $10 and after playing it, I didn't think that it was worth the $10. Given the current retail price you are better off buying any number of other games that not only play better, but have better quality components.

The quality of the components is typical American, which means cheap plastic. It takes quite a while to put together all the pieces out of the box and the pieces have a hard time holding together. You can glue some of it, but not into the bases since it is a customizeable game. It is not easy to get the pieces in and out of the bases without disturbing the other pieces.

The gameplay is mediocre at best. Once you get basic strategy down, it's really a game of luck of the dice.
