September '07 Roundup: Murdero Review, Fires of Outland Review, Tannhäuser and Starcraft News
Ah, the fine smell of autumn. It cooled off in the northeast this week and you can almost feel the weekends of gaming coming our way when the weather turns ugly. Actually the planets aligned this weekend and we finally had some quality time with our group of grognards to spend on Tide of Iron. Despite the gratuitous slaughter of countless squads of infantry who fell to long range machine gun fire we really liked what we saw. Of course it also helped that we were inspired by the Ken Burns' documentary The War and the new release of Company of Heroes Opposing Forces. It makes for an near-perfect storm of WWII gaming goodness.
But we digress. This month we started rolling out some new reviews of our own, including a WoW TCG Fires of Outland Review and a review of one our new favorite pickup card games Murdero. And as always, more reviews to come!
This month has also been the nice little ramp-up to the holiday season. News of the Starcraft board game has begun to bubble to the surface, and it looks like The Settlers of Catan line of games is going to get a nice facelift just in time for the gift giving season. Meanwhile we also so the release of Tannhauser, another mid century war game with a Wolfenstien/paranormal twist. Speaking of the undead bastages, Last Night on Earth was released and it looks like we have a new front runner zombie game that gives the genre justice just in time for Halloween.
