Remnants, from Fireside Games, is the game that I had hoped would be the last game I had to buy in order to scratch the itch I had for the perfect post-apoc base building game. As it turns out, it's not. Despite a few really painful design choices, however, it's a fantastic little game which is fun, relatively fast, and has a ton of character. It's really not so much a base-building game as a real-time dice game with an economic engine of sorts that also has a base building element; even then, the base building isn't so much...

The more Martin Wallace tells me about Wildlands, the more impressed I get. It's clearly built on his wargaming roots but has evolved to become a quick-playing asymmetric game of fantasy combat. He tells me it's easy to learn, playable out of the box, but with plenty of mechanical depth.

The gamers paw among the pile of games, deciding what to play. There is too much choice: talk drifts, pasta eaten and washed down with beer and cider. In the background, leather cracks sharply on willow as the TV displays the day's cricket highlights. It's a compelling game: maybe we won't play anything at all.
