Featured Comments

Mok Task Left A Comment On Wartime Coming From WizKids

Color me intrigued. This sounds like a pretty nifty game. Though, with Wizkids producing miniatures for both Wizard of the Coast using the D&D license, and Paizo using the Pathfinder license, you’d think this wouldn’t be ‘generic’ themed and would instead carry one of these big-two properties.

They (Wizkids) are even doing boardgames for WotC using the D&D license, seems like this would fit the bill. Go look up Against the Giants, coming this year.

Either way, I’m interested, and pending initial looks, will like purchase
