Military Memoirs is a parlour game from the mind of Jim Wallman. In it, the players tell outlandish tales of their military adventures.
Using a standard deck of cards, Jim Wallman’s Field of Honor is:
a simple two player card game that is an abstract depiction of two armies facing each other on the battlefield. It can either be played as a simple two player card game, or as a sub-game to a more complex wargame � say a campaign where you wish to resolve minor battles without resorting to setting out model soldiers.
In the world of Glider Pit Gladiators,
Two to six players control primitive gliders descending into a deep, sheer-walled pit. Within this natural arena the glider pilots engage in ritualistic, nonlethal gladiatorial combat. A combination of martial and flying skills is required for success in the glider-pit. Every decision a player makes, from the selection of weapons to the anticipation of fickle air currents, can be the first step down a road to glory… or disaster.
I think that this would make a really good and visually striking miniatures game.
Dwarfstar’s classic Barbarian Prince board game is now available for a free download.
From the original cover:
BARBARIAN PRINCE is a solitaire game of heroic adventure in a forgotten age of barbarism and sorcery. No opponent is necessary as the Event Booklet takes you through a pre-programmed sequence of encounters which is different each time you play the game. For each event, you, as the Barbarian Prince Cal Arath, must make the decisions which will make your quest successful — or may cost you your life.
BARBARIAN PRINCE is a new concept in Adventure Gaming. No rules reading is required; the programmed event sequence lets you begin play as soon as you open the box.
BARBARIAN PRINCE contains — A full-color 12″x 14″ mapboard, a die, rules folder, Event Booklet, and summary sheet
Are you old enough to remember the DwarfStar board games? If so, then you probably have the same fond memories as I do. One of my favorites was Goblin. In it, players take turns pillaging and plundering a hapless valley.
