Expeditions: Conquistador

Filed under: Boardgames No Responses

Turned-based combat with hexes. Been a while since I played a game with this. This was a game that completely flew under my radar. I didn’t contribute to its Kickstarter and didn’t notice its release at all. Indeed, its Kickstarter campaign seemed barely successful. The amount raised reached the basic goal but didn’t even meet […]

Disaster befalls us in 1365. Our clan leader dies of old age. Not only does this deprive us of his valuable services but since he is also the king of our tribe, this means a new tribal moot will be called to elect a new king. Of course, we immediately elevate another worshipper of Orlanth […]

In 1361 we perform a divination ritual on the strange sorcerous implements we obtained from the servants of the Pharaoh who were hunting the Six Brothers. The spirits of our ancestors tell us that they are cursed. Fortunately we are able to trade them away to another clan for some other goods. Later, a group […]
