* yes, sometimes
* yes, once or twice
* no
* never heard of Swordpoint

Have it…. Living long enough and avoiding distraction long enough to dip into every rule set out there is a challenge……. It's just not high enough on my buckets list to see it on the table before it has been revised beyond recognition to the edition I currently have.

I have the rule book, but I have never played it.

Kinda, sorta, vaguely intend to buy it. One day.

Yes, once or twice. I enjoyed the game and probably will purchase the rules at some point

I'm not sure if I've heard of it either….

Personal logo brass1 Supporting Member of TMP11 Mar 2022 9:23 a.m. PST

It's on the "I'll get to this some day" shelf.


Disco Joe11 Mar 2022 9:57 a.m. PST

Never heard of it.

I'm going to guess this may be a UK/USA split. The game has been promoted by Gripping Beast here, though I don't know the exact relationship between that company and the rules.

Micman Supporting Member of TMP11 Mar 2022 11:05 a.m. PST

Never heard of it.

Gear Pilot11 Mar 2022 2:25 p.m. PST

Never heard of Swordpoint, but then I don't collect Ancients.

sidley11 Mar 2022 3:42 p.m. PST

Have the rules, but like many rule sets I have, never played.

D6 Junkie11 Mar 2022 4:15 p.m. PST

Just played our first game a few months back

Legend of Doom12 Mar 2022 2:51 p.m. PST

I played it once but could not find anyone local who was interested and so never played it again.

79thPA Supporting Member of TMP12 Mar 2022 8:28 p.m. PST

No. I have seen it mentioned on TMP before, but that's about it.

Personal logo oldbob Supporting Member of TMP12 Mar 2022 10:14 p.m. PST

I have the rules, but never played them.
