Following on his video review of our FL22 Adventurers Party, it was my pleasure to view Talking About Games' new review of the beginners boxed set for Flintloque the skirmish.


5024 Escape from the Dark Czar is a jumping-off point for those who want to play some Black Powder fantasy set in the World of Valon. My thanks to Abraham of TAG channel, and I will point out that we gave the boxed set to TAG for free, but we had no input in the review.

The review lasts for 35 minutes, and covers many different aspects of Escape from the Dark Czar. They look at the miniatures, the dice, the bases, the booklet, and then spend time on the background of the game and the characters. A play through of the first scenario in the booklet follows and walks through the game mechanics. It is an excellent, impartial review. If you want to get into Flintloque, then this is the set for you, and it made me smile that Abraham got that immediately, and was then keen to expand his play.

There is a second video!

It is a playthrough of the second scenario in the Escape the Dark Czar booklet! Enjoy this one and see how Abraham gets the survivors through Let them Eat Soup for there is not Enough Bread to Live which is all about collecting vital food from an abandoned cart (we used our 59524 Abandoned Goods Wagon for this).

Go here.

Here is more on Escape the Dark Czar:

5024 – Escape from the Dark Czar
5024 – Escape from the Dark Czar
The bitter retreat from Moskova is where you begin your adventure. Take command of General de Brigade Hugo Saindoux and his three fellow survivors as they attempt to evade death and escape from the Witchlands. On their heels are a group of Savant Zombies, the finest Undead in the ranks of the Dark Czar, who are led by Captain Preserovitch. Their task is to capture the golden eagle standard carried by the young Elven drummer boy Ayers Quinte de Toux. Will the survivors outwit the living dead? In this set is a 20-page booklet containing the core rules of Flintloque the skirmish which will get you playing, as well as character profiles and three introductory scenarios, as well as the story of the Witchlands campaign. Written by Gavin Syme (GBS).
