So, we played our first game of Blood Rage today.
It was pretty enjoyable. The drafting mechanics were interesting, especially since nobody knew too much about what to expect.
We found a few combos that felt a bit broken, like the leader who could travel after battle, pillaging around the board during the first age.
In the third age, I managed to get the lovely combination of Eternal Dragons and Friga’s Domain, allowing my flaming ships to return if they were destroyed.
We ended the game with myself at 144 points, Dimestore at 106, and the others not far behind.
I suspect this will hit the table again shortly. It has some elements in common with Cthulhu Wars, specifically the Power/Rage system, but I think Cthulhu Wars might be a slightly stronger game still, though certainly less played by the majority.
