Got the opportunity to play some RuneWars Miniatures with my younger son over the weekend – a game he picked up a few weeks ago and had been eager to try. Not sure if after playing he is fully sold on the game, though he is eager to buy more figures now, but I don’t know if he ended up truly understanding the game itself. Being 9, he is more interested in just playing with the miniatures, rather than playing a rules-based game. However, RuneWars is written simple enough that he can understand it, and grasp the mechanics, while still being complex enough to be challenging for adults and experienced players. I suspect it will be another collection for he and I to start pulling together.
If you are interested in the game, we played using just the basic box set:
