In keeping with my "weird Victorian London" kick
I picked up London Dread.

It compliments my other 2 Victorian London Games
with the SMOG Settings & has a Mythos vibe. The
Game handles solo using 2 or 3 Investigators so it
should be a good fit.

This Game Overproduced!

The Counters & Character Cards are really heavy stock,
the Board is thick, the various Deck Cards are playing
card quality, dice & Tokens are thick Ivory looking plastic.

Not to mention the art work is very thematic.

The Game has 4 Cases to solve (3 are 2 parts) but you
can always use different Investigators & of course the
Dread Cards will be different each Game as well as the
Board set up.

An Expansion is in the works but no date for release.
A Promo Card small Expansions exist that adds more
equipment Cards for the Investigators so I also got
them as well.

HoldFast Pacific

I've had one of my historical Games relapses ,
so I purchased Worthington Games Holdfast Pacific.

It's an updating of an old AH Game Victory in the Pacific.
(which I sold off several years ago).The cool thing
about this Game is that it's a Block Game rather
than counters that the original game offered,
it's also had its fiddly bits streamlined.

The Game concentrates on the Naval Campaigns
& Island hopping. The China/Burma /India Theaters
are ignored as they were basically stalemated and
the real action was with the Navies.

When I picked up the AH Game the lack of being able
to have China/Burma & India land battles was a
drawback for me but now I realize these were really
sideshows that would add nothing but more time &
rules to the game.

The Blocks represent all the Capital Ships individually &
Cruiser Groups for the supporting ships. The Marine
& Air Units are also have Blocks .

Been concentrating on painting my blood bowl teams and tracking down a copy of gaslands.
