The effects of the one, true, game con that controls all the others has come upon us! Must resist the alluring newness for those deserving. But the burden is very heavy. Smeagol will lead Hobbigeeks to worthy bits. Smeagol must have hisss PreEssennnn.

With the attention this one is getting, it's kinda hard to ignore. Unfortunately, may have to compete with BattleLore. Although, I am getting tapped out on the whole Battle Cry/Memoir bandwagon.

Initial non-foreign non-Englified Rio Grande release. Surprisingly heard very little on this. May have lost some of its luster.

From Kosmos this would be so-so. But, from Mattel, a huuuge jump to be supported. A nice playing filler game.
