I've played the game. As I'm not a big fan of M'44, neither other CC games, I should admit that BattleLore give me much more FUN than I expected. Didn't want rate the game 10 first, but the "1" and the bunch of "explainations" push me to slightly overate the game... Certainly one of the best game seen on Essen show.

My first straight 10. Great game with a good mixture of luck and strategy, and even without any expansions great variety.

The addition of Lore and War Councils combined with a fantasy setting have pushed the C&C system to a new high for me. BattleLore takes some of the best bits from C&C Ancients like the importance of formation and support as well as the ability to battle back for certain units. Each game plays in under an hour and with the free online scenario editor I'll be able to design my own scenarios. BattleLore combines my love of fantasy RPGs and miniature wargames into a fun, playable boardgame. 2 copies.

Best of the series. The lore functions add a whole new level to the game. I also like the fact that it will be expandable much like CC:Ancients with new units and abilities. For epic fantasy battles, this may be a perfect system wherein your strategy must be adjusted to the fate of the card draw. Hats off to DoW for producing this with plastic figures. You get the look of a miniatures game that plays out like a strategy board game.

Resource management and miniatures with a fantasy war game theme.

This game has a simple war game theme much like Commands and Colors: Ancients, Memoir '44 and Battle Cry, but with the added twist that you collect lore and pay lore to cast spells from lore cards that are obtained along the way. You'd think this would swing the game wildly, but both players have the same opportunities to cast devastating (but not game-breaking) spells along the way.

The game is totally overproduced with more bits than you really need to play the game, but the bits make the game more fun with a great deal of visual appeal. Plus, all the complex rules are on handy tip cards, so I don't have to decode a table (like in C&C:A) to figure out what I can do, and what the response is.

Memoir '44 has been my favorite game since I bought it and I like this game just as much if not more because of the Lore system and Call to Arms adds a lot of replay value to the already impressive number of scenarios available to this game. It's very easy to teach to new players and I know some people have a hard time with all the luck involved but I still feel like your decisions play a much larger roll in the outcome of a match than just the luck of the cards and dice. It's a quick, beautiful, satisfying wargame for people who don't want to spend 4 hours reading a rulebook before playing a game and then 8 hours actually playing it.

WOW!!! I got this fantastic game for christmas 2006. I have painted almost all the minis, made a new, larger board to accommodate the new 3d terrain pieces I have also made AND still had time to play a load of times, mostly with my girlfriend, but also with a bunch of pals. Gameplay is fast and furious, so you get all the fun of, say, a game of Warhammer, but in less time, and with no arguments over meassuring and movement!!! The customizing of Warcounsils, the composition of the lore deck, and the possible addition of creatures keep the scenarios fresh and replayable, and I am anticipating expansions for this game in a BIG way! Can´t wait to find out what/who the guest spot on the warcounsil is for! (STILL WAITING 2 years later!!!)
Arguably my girlfriend´s favourite game, and one of the most played during the last 3 years!

I am really enjoying this. A great addition to the C&C family. Different enough from M44 that I am glad I own both. I will continue to play both as well. I can't wait for more "monster" expansions.

I love this game, but find it difficult to find people willing to learn it and play it since my brother (who used to be my main gaming partner for heavier fare) stopped playing board games. It is still my most expensive board game purchase to date, but I'm very glad I own it, especially now that it's gone OOP.

Alright, I give up - it's a 10. Without magic, BattleLore is unexpectedly a good deal more predictable than C&C, mostly due to the absence of leaders and tamer melee counterstrike opportunities.
I'm really impressed how the Lore cards add an additional colour to the base game without totally obliberating the strategies of the normal game.
Played 50+ times.

There are two reasons why this is not as good as Battles of Westeros:
1) It is unrealistic to have the same chance to damage heavy and light units
2) Ordering units by 1/3 sections of the map can cause annoying games if your units get too concentrated in one section.
On the other hand, this game is more solo friendly.

I love battlelore!!! I played it 3 days straight, without going to the facilities. I wet several undies! I used slang!! Cool isn't it!! I rate this a 10/10 because of commitment to literal society... (im quite cool/gangster arent I?) My mum and dad quit there job just to see me play this wonderful game! I would expect them to record this for future reference. I would most gladly show this wonderful game to my children, so they can surpass me of being THIS cool. If i were to make a game i would most definitely call it Geezers cool shady...(YEAH!!)

What rating could I give, if I gave Memoir '44 a 10 and am a fantasy-fan! Fantasy creatures, lore, war council, goblins.... Quick but clever gameplay! Tremendous possibilities for the future! I don't hesitate to give this game a 10.
Edit: Never teach this game to a newbie with lore. I made that mistake and he hated the game...
