Unboxing Operation Cerberus

It seems a tad ironic that an expansion for Dust Tactics based around the invasion of England should arrive here roughly three months after it’s worldwide release.  Still, as it’s finally with us this seems like as good a time as any to take a look at what’s inside the box. Unlike the previous expansions, Cerberus doesn’t come with any extra map tiles.  Instead, as well as the usual two new heroes, you get the...

Stitched Up: Relics (part 2)

Following on from the first part of the article looking at the rules and miniatures, we ran a demo game to give you a bit more of an idea how Tor Gaming’s Relics plays out.  Click on any of the thumbnails for a larger version of each picture.

Irate Pirates: Ron n Bones

I recently managed to pick up a second hand copy of the new starter set for Tale of War’s pirate themed miniatures and board game Ron n Bones.  Now, doesn’t it look great? The box arrived a little battered, but the miniatures hadn’t been assembled, nor the deck of cards opened.  In fact, it appeared that the previous owner had only flicked through the rulebook once before selling it all on for less than half price....
