SAGA Demos at KWC
3 SAGA players will be coming down to KWC fram 7.30 on Thursday 17 June 2014 for a demo of Gripping Beast's SAGA Games
Gripping Beast's Dark Ages miniatures skirmish. Each side has between 20 and 70 miniatures, organised into groups of 4-12 warriors. Miniatures are classed as Hearthguard, Warriors, or Levy, and an army comprises of 6 points of units (1 point = 4 Hearthguard, 8 Warriors, or 12 Levy).
Each faction - Anglo-Danish, Viking, Welsh, Norman - has its own battle board of command options, which are selected depending on the roll of your Saga Dice. Saga Dice have special icons and give your command choices for the turn.
Combat and movement are simple and based on six-sided dice rolls, the real challenge is to use the options from your battle board as effectively as possible. The core game comes with a battle board for the four main factions, with future battle board releases intended to cover other armies and periods.
The first supplement for the game, entitled 'Northern Fury' was released in Spring 2012. It is 22 pages, and contains details and rules for four more factions (Anglo-Saxons, Bretons, Jomsvikings and Scots), one scenario and four separate faction boards; the next was "The Raven's Shadow" with 28 pages - Franks, Irish, Norse Gael & Strathclyde Welsh.
Come on down and check it out on Thursday
