Blood Rage

Blood Rage is a fantasy miniatures game set in a world of Norse mythology. The tagline of Blood Rage is, “Life is Battle; Battle is Glory; Glory is ALL” and that is exactly what the game is all about. It begins with a drafting phase where your goal is to acquire powerful battle cards or ancient monsters to fight at your side. Players then fight over territories and whether they win or lose they are rewarded for their efforts. To the victors go the spoils but there is also no shame in losing for your soldiers are rewarded in Valhalla. One strategy, Loki cards, actually rewards you for losing battles, or punishes the winner. What I like about the game is that there are many different balances so that one strategy does not work every time. Drafting is very important, but so is knowing when to strike and the combinations of the cards that you draft. It plays 2-4 players and lasts about 90 minutes.
