Just this morning I had a bit of a conversation about “what is being a true Goth?” Meaning those that enjoy dressing up in black all the time, and such like that (absolutely nothing wrong with being Goth, mind you). Of course, being the group I usually talk with, “If you are so Goth, where were you when we sacked Rome?” came up. Well, if you couldn’t make it to the original sacking of Rome, you can now do so vicariously through Germania Magna: Border in Flames, a new card game that’s up on Kickstarter.
In the game, players take on the role of Germanic warlords looking to do a bit of pillaging, plundering, and just a bit of burning. However, the Legions of Rome are still far too strong to take on directly. However, there’s a lot of outlying towns and farms that certainly are well-within your means to target. If you do want to take on bigger cities, you’ll have to team up with your other Warlords. However, Germanic Warlords aren’t always known for their loyalty, and so you’ll have to be on the lookout for ones looking to turn you in for their own gain. Being successful in raids will gain you Glory. End the game with the most Glory and your name will go down in history.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. They’re already most of the way to their goal with still 16 days to go.
