REVIEW – (35:02):
- This week we step on to the field of battle of Vici by Game Salute. This is a fairly light tactical board game for two players, wherein each person seeks to conquer their opponent’s city. In this Chess-like game, both players take turns recruiting and deploying handfuls of units onto the battlefield. When two opposing units face off against one another, dice are rolled to determine who lives and who dies. These pitched battles continues over a span of about 30-40 minutes until inevitably one side emerges the victor. We explore where Vici’s blades shows some prowess as well as where they miss the mark.
