This game is fantastic! It puts the fun back into tabletop miniature gaming without eating a hole in your pocket. You don't have to buy miniatures. You can use any fantasy miniatures you already have from boardgames or playing Dungeons & Dragons. The rules are easy to learn and even easier to teach without being too simple. There is a lot to remember, but you can look up rules at the table during your first games. This would be a great game to teach to your kids. I could see this being a great way to get friends interested in the hobby too. I played a game tonight with my wife. That said, there's enough game here to keep the hardcore gamer interested too. I was actually surprised by how robust the rules were. The designer Andrea was kind enough to answer my question about his game quickly. So great customer service. It's too early to tell, but this might end up being my favorite game. I haven't been this happy with a product in years. The inksaving PDF is great too. So many products here are impossible to print because their authors refuse to make a print-friendly file available. I really hope Andrea continues to put out great content for this game. It's really something special.

This is a great system! The battles keep going back and forth, constantly keeping the game exciting. It is very easy to introduce house rules and to make new creature profiles. The system is open for adjustments and your own ideas. This makes it a lot more involving game than bigger more polished games - in my opinion it is a good thing. The artwork is a nice change from mainstream generic fantasy. I can't recommend this enough.

Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes is good product for wargaming with a warband, with a few flaws. For this review, I skipped playing with the rules for Magic. It is almost a 5 star review, I gave a 4 star critic to aknowledge the room for improvement.

Pros :

  • the Turn Over AND the Reaction mecanisms, which are quite good, and gives everyone a thrilling feeling of uncertainty
  • the Fight resolution system, which is simple and yet allow for many possibilities on the battlefield. It is quite easy to figure out what is going on
  • The Traits list is complete and will cover must of Fantasy Warband wargaming, though if you use too much of them, you may have some extra complexity and slow down your game

Cons :

  • a lack of polishing in the final product. Some Traits mentioned in the document are not described in it (ex : Headbutt)
  • the Cost for Traits is not mentioned in the document, yet it is available, in a separate document, and in a html warband calculator
    • the separate html calculator IS available and useful, but it mentions several traits as present in ASOBH which are not indeed

I played with a 7 years old kid, keeping only a few Traits and no Magic, and it went smoothly. We had a good play.
