Legion of Honor review

The guys of the gaming blog Shut Up & Sit Down have played Legion of Honor (Clash of Arms), a card game set during the Napoleonic Wars.


At first glance Legion of Honor looks like the typical wargame about the Napoleonic Wars. But it’s far from this: Instead of raging war with huge armies and simulating battles, the game is more a story-telling/ role-playing game about the life of a French soldier during the Napoleonic Wars.

You can read more about how the game works and what SU&SD said about it here.

Epic Spell Wars available again soon

Good news: the reprint of Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards – Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre, the card game about battles between wizards will be back by the end of the week.

Here is a short description of the game:

Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre is a humorous card game depicting a vicious, over-the-top battle between a variety of comically illustrated wizards. The game focuses primarily on creating three-part spell combos to blast your foes into the afterlife. The unique Dead Wizard cards allow players to stay in the game even after their wizards have been defeated.


If you want to know more about the game, I can recommend the TableTop episode about the game.

White Wizard Games plans for 2015

White Wizard Games has announced their plans for 2015:

  • The first new game will be Epic Card Game, a fantasy strategy card game, that combines elements of Ascension and Star Realms. Each box contains 128 cards, enough for 4 players.
  • The second new product is Star Realms-Year Two, a completely new stand-alone deck. Explorers, scouts and vipers are the same, but the trade deck will be all new.

Both games/products are expected for fall 2015.

Spring is hopefully coming soon (as soon as we get over the expected snow for the Easter weekend) and we need to make some room on our shelves. That’s why today we have started part 1 of our clean up Spring Sale. At the moment 27 games are on offer, more will follow as soon as I’m back from my short break after Easter.
