Beautiful BattleLore

On Wednesday, a preview copy of BattleLore showed up on my doorstep, courtesy of my friends at Days of Wonder. It’s a fantasy battles miniatures game based on Richard Borg’s Command & Colors system, also used in Memoir ’44. That alone would be enough to sell me on it.

I haven’t gotten through it all yet, but it’s beautifully done. Plus, it’s a dense box, full of all sorts of cool bits that collectively weigh several pounds. Sure, it’s $70, but for that price (roughly the same as a next-gen videogame) you get a lot of great stuff. It reminds me of the great Games Workshop boxed games in that way: chock full of toys and potential.

  1. I had the good fortune to play BattleLore with Mark Kaufmann a few weeks ago, and it is tremendously well done. It’s everything we’ve come to expect from Days of Wonder.

  3. Days is a great company, and Mark and Eric really seem to know what they’re doing. I’m looking forward to seeing lots more BattleLore material in the future too.
