Brent Steeves' Captain is up. He did a wonderful job as always and I high recommend downloading this into the .mov format. This one is abit longer because of all the hired native combat. You can find it here.

Happy New Year! Sorry I have still not been keeping up with the site but there will be a couple new MR character examples in the next couple weeks.

.

Brent Steeves sent in a whole bunch of great character examples awhile back and two of them are up and ready.

.

First up and new example for the Sorcerer. This example focuses more on the Firey blast strategy and is an excellent example of magic. You can find it here as example 2.

.

Brent also sent in a new example for the Black Knight. I have always seen the Black Knight played by raising a huge army but Brent does a great job at showing the strength of the lone Black Knight. This example is great for learning the fundamentals of combat. You can find this example here.

Man it has been awhile since I have posted. My wife and I had our third child a couple weeks ago and we are also trying to buy a house so I don't think I will be able to do any videos for a while.

.

Luckly Stephan Valkyser is still cranking out excellent Magic Realm character examples. He sent in this great example of the Sorcer a while ago and I just finished uploading it. In this example he did use several advanced rules, but even with the advance rules this is a great explaination of magic in the game. So if you are interested in Magic Characters this is the example to start with. You can find the new videos here.

Stephan Valkyser has created another great character example. This time he cover the nimble Woods Girl with some very great finds in the begining. You can find the new videos here.

Episode 31 is up. Sorry this one took so long. I have actually had it recorded for some time but have not had time to finish it up. This week I did an introduction to the game Battleground: Fantasy Warfare. The is a great miniature style game that replaces expensive miniatures with standard sized cards.

I posted a new written review today. Battue: Walls of Tarsos is an expansion for Battue: Storm of the Horse Lords is posted here. I am going to try and do more written reviews over the summer and less video reviews so I can get outside and enjoy the weather while it is nice.

Ok, So the other site died. If you are going to design a website. DO NOT use sitebuilder. I am posting this new site before its ready. It is still under construction so some of the links and content is not there yet.

.

4/03/08
The new episode is up. First up is a quick War Card Game Battle for Hill 218. This is a quick fun card game that plays more like a tile laying game than a card game. After that is Elemental Rift which is one of the new games from Small Box Publishing and in my opinion their best so far. Finally I go over Risk: Black Ops. This is a promotional version of the new Risk game that is about to be released feature sped up mechanics.
