Grudge Match: Dwarf King’s Hold

Mantic Games have recently released Ancient Grudge, an expansion for their Dwarf King’s Hold line of games.  As my copy arrived this morning (two days from order to delivery – nice service from Mantic) I thought that this would be as good a time as any to take a look at the whole line.

An afternoon as a Gears Of War COG

It’s been fascinating to watch – and be a part of – the recent tabletop gaming renaissance. I was finally bitten hard in late 2010 when I undertook the mighty Arkham Horror, which dragged me straight to the bottom of the lake and I haven’t even tried to get to the surface yet. In fact, I even managed to make a new friend and drag him down with me in the summer of last year and we’ve been gaming partners...
