Demo Games at Adepticon 2017

The following is an excerpt of a blog article.  Read Full Article

For me, a big part of going to Adepticon is checking out various games and trying something different. Over the last few years, the number of games to play outside of the big tournaments has grown significantly, so there were a lot of options to choose from. Here are a few of the games I got to try. Witchborn is a fantasy game with random events supplied by an app that pairs with numbered locations on a printed map.

Great post Tim,
A timely reminder that when attending con's it pays to slow down and try some demo's.

How would you say Relicblade compares to Song of Blades (and/or AdvancedSBH) in terms of complexity and play time?

I got to play a few new games at Adepticon as well...

The stand out for me was Mantic's Walking Dead All Out War, which may be the perfect ruleset for our next zombie game...

Based on the demo, Relicblade is pretty comparable to Song of Blades and Heroes. The number of minis and options you have, etc... is about the same or maybe a little less. having everything on the cards makes it a little more straightforward. I have not read the full rules yet, so I might change that opinion.

Cool.
I'd be willing to give it a go when you have handle on the rules. Is there a mechanic for making your own stat cards?

There are blank cards, but i don't think there is a system for giving them points values.
