Ages ago I had a article series where I took games in my collection and thought about them via the one mechanic I think defines them.  Today I’m going back to that with Comanchería from GMT Games.

I've been playing hobby games for over 30 years, the majority of that time focused on board games. Increasingly, I've been growing bored with them.

Welcome back. This is part two of my "Ode to FFG". In this week's episode we will be looking exclusively at games that the company brought back from the dead.
