My first game using the SAGA rules. Some pictures and write up of the game. Much more enjoyable than I thought it would be.

Great report, thanks for posting – keep us abreast as you play more of this GREAT GAME.

PS: try some Norman archers next game – lots of battle board bonuses (if you roll your dice correctly that is!!!)

Six saves on a D6 needing 6. Now that is one for the Sagas!

Good write up and very nice figures.

Hi all
Many thanks for taking the time to look and post your comments, they are much appreciated. Never having tried anything like this I was really surprised how easy it was to grasp the concepts around the rules and what an enjoyable game it was. Having a look at some figures to play more games.
You are right Louie N, the 6 sixes is the stuff of Sagas!

This is a great game indeed, but keep in mind, a second edition of the rules is rolling out after the first of the year. I'm waiting and hoping they don't ‘break it'. But some of the other factions are just plain "wonky", esp the Irish 🤨 and the Jomsvikings, who are just Vikings who live in Northern Ireland.
