Whitesnake - Here I Go Again

It's time to delve into some Whitesnake to break up the Iron Maiden (who will no doubt make a return as soon as Warren gets a hold of the Live Blog again!)...

Here I Go Again seems rather fitting for these armies clashing on the tabletop.

I hope Warzan and Justin checked their feet before coming back inside. Autumn is a perilous time, when canine IED’s (Incredible Excrement Deposits) lie camouflaged among thousands of leaves….

Really excited to see this, I have always wanted to play cold war. I’m particularly interested in the British when they release.

I think that playing a game of Twilight Struggle the board game could be a great way to start a campagin of team yankee. Just to get more emerced in the cold war era and build a great prolog to the game.

For Those Who dont know, Twilight Struggle is a two player board game where one player controls the US and the other control soviet during the cold war. The goal is to control most of the world while not triggering nuclear war. Great historical game, Definetly worth checking out.

Yeah Twilight stuggel is hands down one of my top 5 best bordgames, it is soooo fun and scary^^

redben

Easily in the top 5. Possibly the best boardgame ever.

ojenserud

Definetly on my top 5 as well. No miniatures or awesome artwork but it suits the game perfectly. I can not think of any board game that has captureded the flavour of an era as good as this one has.
