When going on adventure, the goal is not to just wander around but experience some interesting challenges and visit new places. One of culminating moments of our Frosthaven travels is when we encounter so called BOSSEs! Those usually special, one of the type creatures, have some special abilities, tons of Hit Points and can be very mean. Do you remember when we had to defeat Gloom in Gloomhaven? That is what I am talking about! Let us also have a brief look into the past and some of the Boss-Scenarios we experienced in Frosthaven: Snowdancer and Frozen Fist – that was very early in the campai ..read more

by The Boardgames Chronicle
3d ago
Recently I was contacted by Andrew Rourke, founder of Form Square Games, with question if I would be interested in checking on and reviewing one of his games. I looked in details and immediately got hooked up by the topic, theme as well as interesting luck-driven mechanics and approach to historical conflict! In Bonaparte’s Eastern Empire you take the role of either the French, who must sail their fleets to Egypt and fight to conquer the Egyptian lands, or the Allies, who must prevent the French incursion by expelling or destroying them.

Samurai Battles session reports – playing individual battles

It is long time since I last reported our Samurai Battles games – well, after its publication like two years ago we played very vigorously and extensively. Later on, other titles took precedence, but you know my weakness for Commands & Colors games – can play them always and everywhere What I really like in this installment is grouping some of the scenarios into the linked, chronological, and logically connected sets. This usually means some particular battle being separated into couple of phases. That process can be done based on timeline with battle interlude, main action, and ..read more

Well, I am glad to say that we continue our Frosthaven adventure again in four-player team!

Top Solitaire Wargames: Fresh Designs and Inspiring Solo Experiences
Board social chronicle | About games and meetings
by The Boardgames Chronicle
3w ago
The Solitaire Wargames – genre which in the beginning of my tabletop journey was completely alien to me – are becoming more and more prominent in my overall boardgames passion. I really like all the types: the dedicated solo designs, positions with solo variant or simply solo-friendly titles (like with chit-pull mechanics). If I have a multiplayer game which I am going to bring to the table with my friends, almost always I first do a solo run and familiarize with it. Without any doubt the the pandemic time contributed here greatly – except for occasional Digital or VASSAL/Tabletop Simulator as ..read more
