The whole world is in chess. Any move can be the death of you.
Peter and Will unleash their inner nine-year-olds to play Battle Masters!
Sometimes you get a bit tired of the endless pouring over rules summary sheets, the building of forces, the checking of point costs. Sometimes you just want to slap a couple of armies down and have at it! Which is where Battle Masters, an elaborate 90s collaboration from Milton Bradley and Games Workshop, comes in!
Featuring scads of plastic miniatures, a huge vinyl floor mat, and even a large plastic tower, Battle Masters is the kind of game no one could afford to make (or buy) these days. I’d always considered it little more than a curiosity in my collection, but to the huge surprise of both Will and I we ended up having a really fun time playing it. Check out the video and vicariously participate.
Oh, and I must apologise for the constant shaky camera work – obviously our enthusiasm and high energy presentation translated into the way we both held the camera.
One more thing: sorry it’s been a little quiet here at the EOG for a few weeks, mainly due to some very distracting renovation work that’s been going on here at the EOG headquarters. I plan for things to pick up very soon!
