Hammer of the Scots
Tonight I went over to Mark Wall's place for some games of Hammer of the Scots by Columbia Games. We ended up playing 3 games, 2 of them went rather briskly but the third we played to a draw as it was getting late. I think the "The Bruce" scenario is overall a more balanced scenario than the "Braveheart" one. I like this game, it's simple and has some really nice mechanics. I like the rotating-your-block mechanic to reflect damage. It keeps board clutter to a minimum and avoids things like casuality chits or markers. I look forward to getting in more games.
