RAW, RAI and rule abuse in Warhammer 40k; lets make a change

by Matt Gearyon 10/07/2020
I have been playing 40k since the days of the original Rogue Trader book in all it’s strange and weird glory. I took a small break in between 3rd and 5th editions, but within my time in the game, I never played competitively until 8th edition. Why? Well It seemed a bit more streamlined, and […]

Twilight Imperium 4th Edition- Review

by Matt Gearyon 06/03/2020
All in all, TI4 is a great game (though not the cheapest), balanced, not overly complex, quicker than you might think and with so much replayability. If you are the long hall war gaming type then you'll need to go into it understanding that it isn’t really a wargame, despite its look, it’s a game of diplomacy and threat… with the ability to war it out, if you must.
