Played another 2 hour slugfest of Warhammer Invasion the LCG from Fantasy Flight Games last night. How is it that the card game is more fun to play than the miniatures game? While a standard miniatures game of Warhammer Fantasy usually consists of: line up across board, march to middle and collide, I find the Warhammer Invasion nuances and tactics very fulfilling. Other than getting walloped by Dwarves our games have been very close and last nights was no exception. I played a allied deck with High Elves and Lizardmen and my opponent went straight out Dark Elves.

As the game ramped up I got a few breaks and had so many resources out that he finally just could not stop me. He conceded with 6 damage on 2 of his 3 walls and the end was near.
Also in the mail I got my Dystopian Wars templates and tokens from Laser Dream Works, a small company that makes some really nice steampunk counters for the game. Pics below
I have ordered the Lord of the Rings Co Op LCG and Game of Thrones LCG also. Fantasy Flight is making a killing off me this month.
A Descent 2.0 teaser trailer has been posted as well. I am throwing so much information at you that the average reader may not be able to comprehend the awesomeness of what is about to transpire.
