Every year Knight Models releases a new, limited print run miniature during their Black Friday sale. This year’s model is a brutal, well armed, alternate version of Batman, The Grim Knight!
The Grim Knight comes from an alternate universe to the main DC comic books. In this universe, after the fall of his parents to Joe Chill Bruce Wayne takes up guns. Not just one gun, but lots of guns as can be seen on the miniature.
In that moment where Bruce’s parents are murdered, Joe Chill drops his gun and gathers the pearls that are bounding around the street. It’s in that one moment that this alternate Bruce picks up the gun. Fires the gun. Not only altering Bruce Wayne forever by changing that one rule that makes Batman so unique over other vigilantes. Bruce kills Joe Chill.
In this article, I review the latest Black Friday special release model from Knight Models. Check out The Grim Knight and see what he can do!
I am a huge fan of games like Mysterium and Obscurio. These cooperative games of deduction by use of art provide great collaboration at the table as you try to solve for the clues that are being given to you. There’s something about the perplexed look of players as you give them cards that they don’t understand the meaning you are trying to convey or that got it moments when they realize the message.
Mysterium Park is the latest in what is an ever growing genre of these style games. In this outing, Libellud has tried to streamline the game experience for a faster and smoother game. What I find is a very successful, simplified version of the original Mysterium that fits in a smaller box and price point.
Playtime (with Setup): We find it between 30 and 90 minutes
Tapestry, for us, has been one of the most played games of 2020. It was a game that was heralded with a lot of hype at release, but seems to have not lived up to that hype in everyone’s minds. Yet, it’s eye catching table appearance, easy rules, and fairly scalable play at all player counts has made it easy for it to make it to the table.
Since the first expansion, Tapestry: Plots and Ploys was announced, we have been hyped up to get our hands on it. With anticipation since we ordered it we are now finally able to get it to the table and out of the box. Let’s take a look at the components and what this really adds to Tapestry.
Playtime (with Setup): We find it between 90 and 180 minutes
