Noble Men of Hawkshold

Mike and I got together this afternoon to play some Battleground: Fantasy Warfare, the "miniatures game on cards," as people often describe it. It's true, the units are cards. The game has a lot more going for it than that, however. I'll be talking about it in more depth on next podcast, but my high-level assessment is that it's very much about command and maneuver. The system rewards effective planning, and you can create very interesting problems for your opponent by presenting unforeseen obstacles. The rules are a bit unclear at times, but we still had a good time. I'm hoping this one gets to the table often.
