A distinct lack of energy in December was followed by a busy Christmastime. I managed only to find time to try some more Lord of the Rings Living Card Game, and quite a few (demo) games of Battlefront’s (not them!) Combat Mission: Fortress Italy computer game.
Both games are great for the solo gamer. Strategy and tactics and a bit of luck have their place. I tried out several decks at the LotR game against the starter mission “Journey down the Anduin” and then had several goes trying to crack the “Elephants and Tigers” scenario in the CMFI game (Fallschirmjager really rule the roost in that one!)
