A game of luxury: chunky pastic pieces from silken bags, all played on a cloth map. Yet despite the soft appearance, Bloodstones is a wargame, about 1-6 separate tribes fighting for control of a fantasy land. Yet this wargame takes a more Euro-approach of scoring victory points, so while strength is helpful, tact will win you this game. The game also features an extensive solo campaign, should you be without willing folks to play it with.
