I can’t get away from the fact I’m a miniatures guy at heart. Therefore any game that brings me closer to miniatures is an attraction. WARMACHINE: High Command obviously does that. Drawing on the richness of the miniatures line, this card game instantly makes me want to try it. Don’t get confused though, this isn’t a miniatures game with a card driven engine.
About High Command
High Command is a unique deck-builder with solid mechanics that is fun too. The deck-building is different in that you only buy your own cards. Each faction and each different color of detachment plays differently. Part of the fun of this game is figuring out how the different detachments play and finding synergies between them.
Even though we covered High Command before I wanted you to see a couple of “exclusive to PHD” cards from the new expansion coming in December 2013. These cards have not seen the light of day, outside of Privateer Press, and appear in The Big Guns expansion which I reviewed a few days ago.
