Life is Battle, Battle is Glory, Glory is ALL!
The latest miniature-packed Kickstarter-funded game from Cool Mini or Not is Blood Rage, an action-packed area-control game with just the right mix of trashy Vikings-at-the-end-of-the-world theme and tight mechanics. Eric M. Lang really trimmed the fat off this design, going for a tight three-Age framework that punishes you if you get too far behind, but rewards the experienced player who selects just the right combination of cards. And since those cards are chosen by a draft, you can’t blame the luck of the draw too much if things don’t go your way.
Blood Rage looks great, the rules are easy to learn, and the figures – especially the monsters – are stunning. Definitely a game worth adding to your collection.
