Blood Rage really lives up to it's reputation. The game components are superb: the miniatures are fine detailed and look amazing, the cardboard tokens are thick, the board is great and also functional and all the cards have nice artwork. The rulebook is well written and it isn't too long either. The gameplay is fantastic. I have tried this game with 3 and 4 players and there is not much downtime, you are engaged both on your and other people's turns. There are multiple viable strategies to win, and the card drafting in each round allows you to be flexible and change direction when needed. The combat is simple, but interesting, as you have your warriors on the board visible to all, but the combat cards add an element of surprise. The ability to "get in" on other player's battles lets you interfere with the other players' plans. All in all, a huge thumbs up on my part!
