A Song of Ice and Fire
A couple of weeks ago, I played an introductory game of A Song of Ice and Fire. Although we didn't have the rulebook, we did have enough information to play a rough approximation of the rules. It has some interesting mechanics with the non-combat units and the cards, but the combat is similar to other fantasy games in that you roll to attack and then roll to block the hits.
The minis are nice, and Yosef did his usual great job with terrain. I had fun, and am interested in playing the game with the complete rules. This should help keep me from getting to anxious for the final season of Game of Thrones.
