I looked at a lot of games and showed each one to The Hubby and The Spawn. Together we chose Rivet Wars Eastern Front. It arrived in the post on Friday and I almost fell down when I saw all the goodness inside that box.
Look at all those minis! And that's not even half of them.
Look at that Steampunk style.
I've got cards, dice, markers, tiles, and a rulebook, just like a real gamer. The high I got from going through the contents of the box was even bigger than the high I got from opening my first blister pack. I'm now in phase two of this hobbies addiction and I'm going down without a fight. I've to learn the game yet, but am looking at game play videos and it's starting to make sense.
I showed the figures to The Hubby and he LOVES them! They're really big, he can see all the details and they will be easy for him to pick up and move around, a benefit that I didn't think about. There are two forces, The Allies and The Blighters. I'm giving The Hubby The Allies and I'm going to play The Blighters. I like the Blighters because they are led by General E. Romler. When I was a little girl and played WWII with my cousin, I always had to be Rommel as he was my favourite General. The Hubby is quite pleased to be General G. Patston, as he is a fan of General Patton. I'm going to annihilate his forces!
Once we get the hang of the game I'll do an AAR to report how things turned out.
May the Dice Gods be with me.
