Crusader Rex

with 2 comments

John Mitchell came over to play Crusader Rex last week. It’s good.

Essentially, it’s the almost same game as Hammer of the Scots, but using the road movement of Napoleon, instead of area movement. The mechanics are a little more streamlined, as it does not have the slightly strange wintering rules of Hammer of the Scots. Right now, I prefer it to the original game.

I have played five block games right now. Here’s my ranking:

  1. Rommel in the Desert
  2. Crusader Rex
  3. Napoleon
  4. Hammer of the Scots
  5. Wizard Kings

Here is another image session report with comments. We didn’t finish, but had a lot of fun anyway. I probably had the edge, but it was not decided for certain. I hope John comes back soon.
