Player mat, which avoid the need of paper and pen
|Comments:||My edition is from 2003. The designer is Dirk Henn.
The game proceeds in weeks, and
every week runs down after the following scheme:
I like the theme, which is strongly connected to more or less well-known ancient fortresses on the Swedish island Öland. It's a very light game, which brings down my personal rating, but still it quite okey as a filler or as a family game. It's worst default is the need of paper and pen, but it can be solved with my player mat, where you secretly can deploy your armies on behind a screen or your arm sleeve. The battle mechanism is nice, as the winner or looser has to change battle cards, which will even out future fight. Still everyone can use one amulet to change battle cards just before a fight.
