But I hope it means a lot of gaming for you. But what games? Well, how about checking out some reviews to know that you buy just the ones you'll like.

Looks like a lot of reviewers are taking a break for the holidays. We've just got one for you today.

Board Game Quest Reviews Stronghold 2nd Edition


Stronghold includes a large double-sided sheet containing a prologue to the theme of the game. An invading force of goblins, orcs and trolls is attacking a fortress populated with two heroes, veteran warriors, soldiers and marksmen. The invader is attempting to use a combination of troops, siege engines and spells to send units along discrete paths to the walls and overcome the forces of the defender.

The management of this defense by the defender uses time units as resources to shore up the defense of the walls with archers, soldiers, and castle structures. If the defender can last seven game rounds without a wall breach, the defender wins. If a wall is breached, the invader wins immediately.
