Hammer of the Scots

Post by Ancalagon » Fri Dec 09, 2016 6:15 pm

Versidious and I got together this afternoon and broke open my Hammer of the Scots board game I picked up at Gen Con back in 2014. We prepped all the blocks with the stickers and started reading through the rules. We rolled a few dice to simulate a combat between two noble factions and decided this would be a fun game to play but would require more time than what was available. I'd like to give the game a full on try and see how it plays out.

Here are the rules of the game: http://www.columbiagames.com/resources/ ... rrules.pdf

Here is a short video explaining the jist of the game:

It's definitely a full afternoon game, with all the steps and resolutions. It'll be nice to see how it plays out.

Very nice, I'll be interested to see how it turns out. Speaking of long lasting games, I have my copy of War of the Ring I would love to break out and play some time, that one would take a while, but I think would be tons of fun.

Sounds like OmaCon fodder to me!

The one drawback to Hammer of the Scots is that it is a game for only two players, unlike the mass fun of Kingmaker which accommodates several more people.

Haven't played me some KingMaker in several years. Wouldn't mind doing so again one of these days... kilted... with some haggis and crackers... and good single malt... just sayin'.
