3 in 15 is our monthly YouTube show and we review 3 board games in roughly 15 minutes. These are quick reviews of games that we have played a few times.
It’s the start of the work week again. Time for a little Monday morning distraction with a couple of crowd funding projects to distract you.
SchilMil Games with partnership with designer Martin Wallace are working on expanding the AuZtralia game with a big box and two new expansions. The mythos had previously taken over the world, but humanity has pushed them back to Australia. Now Cthulhu and the other great old ones fight back against humanity to desperately cling to their hold on Earth.
The base game features an exploration of Australia as you try to settle it from your beach head. Build military units, build farms, and collect resources. Combat with the old ones is card driven with different types of units being better against different types of monsters. Players play as different factions trying to retake (and make a profit) on Australia. Can you muster what it takes to overcome the last of the Old Ones?
On top of the big box for storage, the Revenge of the Old Ones expansion enables a player to take control of the old ones to make for a one vs. many play experience. Meanwhile, the TaZmania expansion gives players some alternate maps that scale the game down better for a 2-3 player experience.
From Monolith Board Games comes another epic game with loads of figures, cards, and other components in Mythic Battles: Ragnarock. Based on the same Mythic Battles engine from Mythic Battles: Pantheon, in this game you will play out the epic Norse mythology of Ragnorok with various Norse gods and their foes.
What’s for sure to be included in this project are a plethora of well sculpted plastic figurines. What’s even cooler is that they are diving into Norse mythology. If the original Greek mythos wasn’t your thing from the Pantheon game then this could be more your visual style.
If this kind of thing sounds like fun, then check out Mythic Battles: Ragnarok.
