The 2nd ed. is better than the 1st. GO GET IT!

I really enjoy this game. This game plays much differently
than R3 or HOTS. Play is fast once you get the mechanics down. There are some cool problems to solve on both sides.

This one can be a real brain buster, and a dice chucker This and Rommel in the Desert are my favorites of the Columbia titles.

My first block game - lots of fun! I think I'll be expanding my block game collection. Had heard that earlier versions suffered from imbalance, but with the 1.4 version of the rules I think the game is pretty well balanced. In my first game the Saracens did still win, but it was on the last die roll of the last combat round of an attack made during a Winter Campaign of the last year.

Another solid block wargame from Colombia. Not quite as good as either Richard III or Hammer of the Scots but a very enjoyable game overall.

Some cracking last turn fight backs for the Crusaders, and always good fun. Probably biased against Franks but I enjoy the challenge.

I like block games, as they are essentially games of maneuver where the key decisions are when and where to accept battle with how much forces for how long. This fits perfectly with the hidden information inherent in the block mechanic and the only detriment for my personally is, that I am not a big fan of hidden information games generally. Plus the block mechanic can begin to feel generic as it gets applied to more and more battles and campaigns. But it all works fine in this game hence the rating.

HAMMER OF THE SCOTS IN THE HOLY LAND
I need a couple of more plays to be certain, but I think I prefer Hammer - more ebb and flow, Good game though.

[14/10/2006] I have to say I firmly belong into the Hammer of the Scots 'camp'. Crusader Rex (v1.4) suffers IMO under the following:

- Less tight resources (moves, block draws, replacement points) compared to Hammer of the Scots.
- Problematic victory conditions: They encourage a gamey endgame and the end-of-the-world syndrome.
- Both of the above factors also ensure that ordinary castles do not get their due in terms of their strategic importance. A shame since had they more of a strategic role, the game would IMO gain a lot more strategic depth. This would also make the trade-off between spreading out or concentrating one's forces a lot more balanced (which it is not presently, particularly in the endgame).

I really like the basic mechanics. CR offers more room for manoeuvre warfare compared to HotS. Battles and sieges are well-implemented. It's the logistical/economic aspects and the victory conditions, which I deem problematic.

As of yet, the Franks appear to have no chance. Once a viable strategy for them is found I'm sure this game will become more fun. In its favor, I'm still willing to give it that chance.
