With beautiful miniatures and an innovative tactical gaming system, choose your House, raise your bannermen, and take to the battlefield for the Iron Throne!
If high fantasy and a more skirmish scale game are more to your taste, there will be a Games Workshop’s Warhammer Underworlds (WHU) tournament for up to 10 players! WHU is easy to learn skirmish game played on a hex-grid board with card driven mechanics, that doesn’t take hours to play. Official trophy and swag are just among the prizes the players can expect to win!
The good couple from Starting Player will be demonstrating and tabling their new game, Race for the Chinese Zodiac, their second design after their first award-winning Three Kingdoms Redux, They had a successful Kickstarter this year with fulfilment around August, so this is your chance to try this game before most folks!
