That does look awesome, but I'd love to see a video showing some more complex games or an RPG ported to the system. I wonder how it would handle something like Terra Mystica.

Re: tabletop

It would probably be a poor fit for RPGs because those involve lots of talking and writing things down. I think this is better suited for games that rely almost entirely on the behavior of game pieces, e.g. tokens, boards, cards, etc. So, Settlers of Catan would be doable. A paper RPG like D&D, probably not.

Re: tabletop

What did you think? I don't really like it that much, it feels so draining by the end of it I'm wiped.

That honestly sounds like a perfect adaptation, then.

Re: tabletop

I've only played it once, but it was incredible. It's basically Diplomacy in Westeros. Don't play with your Catan friends, but if you have a group of people who enjoy heavy strategy games you'll have a blast.

It does actually do a good job of bringing the tone across, because you can make deals and completely backstab your allies.

I got the Fantastic Four expansion for Legendary yesterday and played a couple of games, got crushed by Galactus . The Spider-Man expansion is arriving Monday too.

Every time we play it seems I wind up as the Lanisters. I guess that means they are the good guys.

Has anyone played "Memorial 44"? Hubby has found some positive reviews online, but I'd like to hear your thoughts.

Cheers,

No, I haven't played it. Haven't played any wargames actually.

Me either. Hubby watches a lot of World War II movies, so I get the feeling the game will make its way into our collection. I'm not sure how much I'll enjoy it...but I'm certainly willing to give it a try.

Re: tabletop

From what I've heard it seems to be on the lighter side of war games.

I ordered Star Trek Fleet Captains the other day. I can't wait for it to arrive. It's been described as "Star Trek in a box," and I watched a few video reviews and playthroughs and it seems so cool

Star Trek in a box? That sounds like quite a feat! Let us know how it is!

Re: tabletop

I'm surprised I haven't heard of it before, given that it was released three years ago. But it looks interesting so I might check it out. I'm not sure I like the price, though ($60-70 on Amazon for the main game and the Romulan expansion is apparently not available).
