Ugavine's Board Game & Role-playing Blog


The gaming continues.  Lots of fun recently with role-playing Shadowrun 5th Edition, Paranoia XP and Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition.  Although sadly the D&D ended in a TPK for the party.

One of the recent sourcebooks for Star Wars: Edge of the Empire RPG is Lords of Nal Hutta, basically a guide to Hutt Space.  This was a most anticipated book by my group and it well and truly delivers, so much so we are going to kick off a new Star Wars game in the next week or so. 

And finally I've got back to some Warhammer 40,000.  The game may have it's haters but personally I love 40K having three armies; Orks, Tyranids and Space Wolves.  This week saw a return of the Sonz ov AnOrky, my Nob Bikerz led by Warlord Badazz Gutrot.  And they returned in brutal style.  Dakka Dakka Dakka!!!


Well, I had to think long and hard about keeping my website up, after all, the Warriors of Gar no longer play.  But all those memories, over 25 years worth, I just cannot let go.  So has been renewed for another year.  I may well look at the site in the coming year to create an info only version, I'll see.  May the FORCE be with you...


Shadowrun Crossfire.  I've always loved the Shadowrun setting but the rules have never won me over.  But what we have here is a thematic game that is easy to pick up but difficult to beat.  Player co-operation is needed if you're going to survive the run.  Great fun.



2015 ended well with an all day game playing Survive: Escape from Atlantis! and Black Fleet. Survive is a great, but then is must be, it has Monster Meeples. Black Fleet is a new addition, a fun pirate & merchant game.

But Black Fleet isn't the only new game we've discovered. 2015 also introduced us to
Shadowrun: Crossfire and 7 Wonders. How did we ever miss these? Both are great games. 7 Wonders is highly entertaining, do you take the resource you want or the one you don't want others to have? And Shadowrun is a superb co-op game, and a pretty tough one too. This is going to get a lot of play.

So moving forward into 2015 we staill have lots of new games to play;
Among the Stars, Dungeons & Dragons: Conquest of Nerath Board Game, Power Grid & Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords Base Set. Plus there is our ongoing Dungeons & Dragons game and a game of Gorkamorka this week.

2015 is looking good.

To to round things off, so many good games out next week;

Star Wars Age of Rebellion:
Stay on Target
Doctor Who: The Card Game 2nd Edition
Warhammer 40,000: Conquest The Scourge
Zombie Apocalypse
Star Wars: The Card Game Between The Shadows
