Nice bits and the Three acts is a clever way to merge the movie to the re-themed board game of "Kingdoms"!

A cheap marketing product? Far from it!
This is basically 'Kingdoms' (already a very good tile placement game) but with much better components, and new powers that make the game more interesting.

2 player game can get very intense.
3 is more fun and less controlable, but also highly enjoyable.

I haven't play Kingdoms yet, but I wish I had before this came out. I love the mechanics in this game.

The movie theme is a little slapped on but it's an easy, awesome game to pull out for first timers. Certain tiles you lay will pee people right off. Watch out.

My wife, in some strange, altered universe moment tonight, said that she "really likes this game."

It's been sitting on my shelf now for 3 years. Tonight, after getting half way through the CGI movie, I decided to pull it out. We had a tense game. She won. The game has just entered a permanent place in my collection.

Stunned. I'm stunned. An abstract by Knizia about Beowulf? Huh.

Simply a masterpiece (call it a meaty filler) where everything builds to a crescendo on three stages. You cannot give your opponents a break and expect to win. The one thing I don't like about this game, is when it's over.. and no Angelina.. and, the fact that we always seem to forget who goes first at the next act (but that's easily fixed with a tile or standee), and the fact this game has almost nothing to do with the movie, but, then we just start another game. Brilliant!

Jolie Standee (I went with a tile though).
WANT: 1 Grey Castle, Rules and 4 Reference sheets. The originals, please.. I don't want scans. English first edition (2007).

This game has caused more tears than any other game our family has played. It is cruel. Forget Diplomacy. If you want to hurt feelings play this. : )

The great artwork, new special powers and 3 different board sizes make it a worthwile acquisition, even if you already own Kingdoms (or Auf Heller und Pfennig). Recommended!

Kingdoms with the Beowulf theme. Offers a little more strategy with the new special tiles but otherwise nothing new from Kingdoms.

UPDATE: best with three (four is too chaotic).

Beautifully re-designed hardcore version of Knizia's Kingdoms, but more thematic than the previous version (imagine!) Yet another one of Knizia's many home runs, and quicker and more accessible than his first B-wulf game.

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

The box says it's a Knizia, so I didn't think too much about the theme. Thus I didn't get dissapointed either .
I really like this one, it's short, easy to explain and deliciously nasty. Personally I like it better than Kingdoms, 3 tiles to choose from, tiles that interact with others and 3 different boards. Plus, it's darn cheap to get and language independent.

I like the fact the game is divided into 3 rounds. It helps keeping track of everyone's score and also gives you a chance to adapt your strategy along the way. Perfect length (a little over 1h?). A great balance between strategy and simplicity. It pisses me off that it's missing more big attack (negative) moves to make it really shine, but like it nonetheless!

I love Kingdoms and this is better for the following reasons:
- better components
- more varied boards
- more strategic planning since u keep more tiles in hand
- some more interesting effects

What's not as good as Kingdoms is that some tiles have maybe a too strong effect and the player that draws such tiles could be advantaged.
Beowulf doesnt feel so beautifully clean as Kingdoms as u need to learn more tiles effects.
But i like it more !

I really like this implementation of Reiner Knizia's classic. It adds enough options and color to make this game more fun than the original without going too crazy.

I like Kingdoms, but I really like the added chrome in Beowulf: The Movie: The Boardgame. The added icons are nice, but the 3 different boards really make this version shine. I like the plastic figures too. Great lunch-time game.

It's "Kingdoms on Steroids", but that's not a bad thing. There's more opportunity to be evil to your fellow players in this game, with the special abilities of the tiles. The only disappointment here is that there's not any pictures of Angelina Jolie...

There is a lot of strategy here, but the "new" elements (those not in Kingdoms) also invite a random elelement. I like it a lot better than Kingdoms, but that's just me.
