Block War card game
« on: 11 November, 2017, 11:08:49 am »
...as mentioned in a the thrill-mail a couple of days ago.

This sounds great and I'm looking forward to hearing more about it.  The box looks nice and chunky and it's great they've gone with the proper Judge Dredd logo and used Ol' Stony Font for the "Block War" text.

It's a pity there's not more detail as I'd like to know if it will be out in time for Christmas.

Website here, for those that missed it: Judge Dredd - Block War from Game & A Curry.

Yeah I like the look of this. I would like to know a bit more about suitability for kids and stuff like that.  I have signed up for the newsletter at the bottom of the page and hope to hear more soon.

Nothing on BoardGameGeek yet. Shame there are no card previews.

I really liked the Block Mania game from Games Workshop in 1987. A little more ponderous to play than their classic Judge Dredd screw-over fest five years previously, but still a lot of fun.

I sent an email to Game and Curry asking for a firm release date on this, but unfortunately got nothing back.  In the Meg maybe last month or the month before a September release was mentioned - it's all been silent since!

Looing at a couple of websites it seems the price for this will vary between about £16 - £20. They all have a 'TBA' on their release date, but pre-orders are available.

Does anyone have any other news on it?

I went on a bit of a hunt. It was recently for sale at the 2000AD stand at the NYCC, start of the month.

I’ve tweeted them to ask what the UK release date is - will see if I get a reply.

Once we have the stock in our UK warehouse we will be selling them through the webshop, just waiting on that slow boat....

Woo-hoo!

So, once it reaches these shores, who wants a game at the Southern Contingent gathering (or Lawless next year)?

In a similar view, we’re long overdue a South Wales meet up! Perhaps a game and a curry somewhere when this lands?  :D

Trying to work out how big that box is - looks like it should fit neatly on the shelf with various Munchkins and Chez games boxes?

Anyone else got this? Mine landed last night and had a quick look through this morning. Haven't got my head into it properly yet but seems like it will be fun and I'm already hoping for the hinted at expansion set.

I had a few niggles with the design and the rules could have been a little sharper - in terms of how they are explained - or I could be being dumb but over all nice little purchase...

...just need someone to play it with is someone fancies popping round to mine!

I'm getting it from the missus for Christmas, so I'll be picking your brains come Stephen's Day, Colin! As noted in the Dredd RPG thread, would be possible to play this on a virtual tabletop, with a wee bit of work.
