This sunday I attended to a demo-game showing the game
Saga hosted by my friend Hamza. My counterplayer was Viktor.
The battle was between the Byzantines and the vikings and I
chose to play the Byzantines.
Sunday the 14th february was also Valentines day and to honour
the day I bought pasteries(cinnamon buns) with heartshaped decorations
on top to all demoplayers and the host. This "action" was a very
good way to start a new game of Saga. :)
I have never played this game before and I really liked the
rules and eventhough it was a lot of things to take notice of.
Eventhough I got a overall grip of it before the game was over.
Hamza told me that the game spanned from the antiques to
1066 and this is a period that is really interessting to play.
One feature that was new to me was the use of the Saga-dices
and this was a key-rule. Once you start to understand how to
use the dices to "buy" the orders it was great fun.
In my opinion I think the persons behind this game has used
features from both DBA, and games such as Warhammer FB.
I won this game but it was a even match and both me and
Viktor enjoyed it. I will start playing this game regularly and
I will use Norman medieval knights and riders as a troop of
choice when a big campaign will start at the gaming club in
april this year.Great fun!
