Alexander

 

Alexander vs. Persia: Battleground Historical Warfare – YourMove Games

Having played and enjoyed previous sets in the Battleground Historical Warfare series, this is a slam dunk winner definitely worth your pledge if you like war games.

Recreate Alexander’s invasions of the Persian Empire using the Battleground Fantasy Warfare system.

Take up the mantle of command of the most famous war in history.  Become Alexander as he conquers the largest empire in the world or lead the mighty Persian army in hurling back that upstart princeling from a backwater kingdom.

Alexander vs Persia is the second historical expansion for the award-winning Battleground system.  This product include two new factions:  Alexander’s army of Macedonian pikemen, cavalry, & Greek allies vs the Persian forces levied from every corner of the empire.  Each faction has its own units, unique faction abilities, and a deck of Command Cards.

Alexander vs Persia is fully compatible with all Battleground historical and fantasy armies.  Hannibal’s infantry can face Alexander’s Companions to see which is history’s greatest general.  Bring the thousand nations of Persia crashing down on Scipio’s legions.  Or have Alexander’s army invade the Dwarven homelands and battle the nightmarish Undead hordes.

Albion’s Legacy

Albion’s Legacy is a cooperative, modular-adventure board game for 1-4 players. A story enriched, quest based, Arthurian themed game!

This looks like a pretty cool game, is a nice change from the usual fantasy fodder and looks like pretty good value.

News – For the Crown: The World is Round – VPG PRESS RELEASE

The world is growing.
 
New frontiers are being explored, and powerful discoveries being made. One can sense the excitement in the air; it is a time of new ideas and expanding horizons. Visionaries chart courses that recently would have been unthinkable. Even common folk are pulling up their stakes and setting out as brave explorers, hoping for a chance at fame and riches.
 
But bravery is not enough today; traditional methods no longer suffice for victory. The royal contenders are becoming more scholarly, hiring magisters where once they sought bureaucrats. Rumors hint at bandits being hired to pick apart their opponents’ less-flexible traditional armies. 
 
The world is growing. We must grow with it, or disappear in the shadows of greater men…
 
The second expansion to For the CrownThe World is Round introduces several new units with the ability to move in a cylindrical fashion – moving off the edge of the board and re-appearing on the other side. Rush your opponent with the vicious Raider, and command your troops with the Khan. Take charge of the battlefield and utilize maneuvers that will make your opponent’s head spin with The World is Round!
Click here for all the details and to order The World if Round.
