We finally played Battle Ravens and really enjoyed it. A brief review and AAR of our first game is up on our blog

It's really a great game. Much fun. Tried it with some of the variants too.

@KSmyth I'll need to hunt for the variants. We're they on BGG?

Yeah, I'm a fan. I like to bring it for quick games in between bigger games we play. Very enjoyable and glad I picked it up.

@Prince Alberts Revenge I really feel it will fit that bill nicely too

I notice in the game set up the front lines seem to be made up of second rate troops (bondi/hird) while the huscarls are lined up behind them. This seems very atypical of dark age warfare, I do hope it's not advantageous to do so in the game.

@BillyNM – no it isn't. The troops position in line is purely how we setup and doesn't impact how game play goes. It is pretty simple and what is there matters but position is not relevant.
