Opening the box: Heroes expansion

Finally, after a long, long wait—all during which I frustratingly had pre-production figures sitting in my drawer and no rules to go with them—the Heroes expansion for BattleLore has arrived! Come with me now as we open the box together …

Sorry some of those figure pics are a little fuzzy, I’ll try to replace them with better ones soon.

WorldofBattlelore.de

worldofbattlelore.deWorld of Battlelore is an exciting new German-language BattleLore site that has recently been launched.

Now’s a good time for German speakers to visit, because they’ve just launched a a new competition: The Battlelore Scenario Contest. Anyone can create a scenario, and Marcus, Sebastian and Alex from worldofbattlelore.de will test the scenarios extensively and award a prize to the best scenario.

What’s the prize I hear you ask? A weekend in June 2009 at the Con of the Heidelberger publishing company (German distributor of FFG and of Battlelore), at the castle Stahleck on the river Rhine. Only invited guests will be there! Room and board will be payed by the Heidelberger publishing company. And the winner will also get a games voucher. A fantastic prize!

Check out World of Battlelore for all the information, terms and conditions. Entry deadline for the scenarios is the 30th November 2008. The winner will be announced on the 1st April 2009.

Opening the box: For Troll and Country

It was with excitement, but a tinge of sadness, that I received the last Days of Wonder BattleLore release this morning: For Troll and Country – Also Featuring ‘Troll Bridge’. It will be interesting to see if Fantasy Flight continues this ‘Epic Adventure Series’.

You’ve seen the Troll figure before on this site. The map itself is a double-sided, matt-finished 87 x 120cm (34 x 47 inches), with scenario instructions and the Troll reference information in three languages (English, German and French).

Eric Hautemont Interview

Eric Hautemont, the CEO of Days of Wonder, is interviewed by Scott Alden of Boardgamegeek. Nothing in the way of BattleLore but an interesting discussion nonetheless, covering the new Memoir ’44 expansion (Air Pack), the Memoir ’44 PC game and the Swiss Map for Ticket to Ride.
