Review: Star Realms

Star Realms is a quick little deckbuilding game, designed for two players, but expandable for more. It's basically Ascension with a sci-fi theme, if you're familiar with that game, but at a fraction of the price (Star Realms retails around $15, although it's currently sold out and the secondary market is filled with inflated copies)

Love Letter: A Lovely Little Game

Dear Readers,

You've probably heard us talk about this inexpensive little gem over on the WWPD Podcast. The name can be a little off-putting, and I've done it no favors by protecting the cards with pink card sleeves and replacing the generic wooden score tokens with pink acrylic hearts... but I'm telling you, this game should be in every game collection!

Alright, so what's so great about this game? First, the entire game consists of 16 cards, and 13 score tokens (as well as a short rulebook and 4 reference cards). The rules for the game are deceptively simple: Either be the last player standing or have the highest value card in your hand when the game ends

Historicon Sneak Peek: Reconquest Titan

Titan, the largest of Saturn’s moons, was taken by the Scourge in 2513. While Titan only had limited civilian and military infrastructure, it served as an important jump route between Earth and the Colonies. As part of the Greater Reconquest, High Command has decided to retake Titan to serve as a frontline staging ground for battles closing in towards Earth. However, due to the constraints of building a new colony from the ground up and getting materials to that end of the star map, High Command has decided to attempt to land on Titan’s surface and take it back, rather than destroying everything from orbit and attempting to rebuild.

The WWPD Fellowship Episode 2: Journey Down the Anduin

The WWPD Fellowship is back, this time playing the Journey Down the Anduin scenario.

Editor's notes: We do make a handful of mistakes in the game- as evidenced in the youtube comments! We're all still very much new players (less than 6 weeks for me!) so cut us some slack!

WSS Wargaming Survey

Apart from rolling dice, there seem to be few things wargamers like to do better than discuss the state of their hobby. Are we dying out? Are we all just loners in a dark basement? The purpose of this survey is to actually get a measure of some of these - and many more - questions. The outcome will be published in an upcoming issue of Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy as well as online.
At the end of this survey, you'll have the chance to enter your email address into a raffle for some very nice prizes, such as the SAGA Great Hall from 4Ground, a 1000-point Bolt Action army offered by Warlord Games, pirates from NorthStar, books from Osprey and Casemate as well as three 2-year subscriptions to either Ancient Warfare, Medieval Warfare or Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy! Moreover, as a thank-you for taking part in this survey, everyone will get a discount coupon for use on the Karwansaray Publishers website and can be used to purchase any of our books and magazines.
Please note that this survey is entirely anonymous, unless you choose to provide your email address for the raffle. If you do, this will only ever be used to contact you if you win. 
Finally, filling out the entire survey shouldn't take more than 5-10 minutes, and we're taking responses until July 31st, 2014.
