You are no more a king than the boil on my arse!
The EOG lays siege to a new copy of Stronghold 2nd Editionby Portal Games and Stronghold Games. Once more unto the shrinkwrap, dear friends!
Another game that’s been on my radar for some time is Stronghold by Ignacy Trzewiczek – the designer of the excellent Robinson Crusoe, a game I really must play more often. This second edition, produced with the help of the appropriately-named Stronghold Games, has finally joined my collection.
It’s a relatively involved and detailed affair with asymmetrical play, a lot of decisions, and a hell of a lot of wooden cubes. Does it capture the tension and violence of a real castle siege? How would I know, I’ve never been in one, thank heavens! But it does look like fun. Join me as I unbox the box and have a look inside at all the cardboard and wooden bits.
