Only did the first two scenarios, which didn't involve using the cards.
So lets start with the basics, we know I like the models, I think they are genius and very simple but so detailed and so amazing and rather cute! Let's not deny this they are.
Now the rules work, and I think we interpreted them fairly well. So if we got it wrong then I have just played a really fun made up game, if I got them right then I just played a really fun game that someone else made.
And it is fun, it's very fast, no need to worry about army lists and that, you start each turn with an allowance of deployment points, which you can't carry over! An rivets which you can. So working out what's going on the table is done on a turn by turn system.
Now the turn sequence goes.
So we played it that way, but we played you go I go. SO we both deployed, then we both did combat, then we both did movement, then we wrapped up. Putting combat before movement is interesting as in the earlier turns you are not close enough for combat, though some cards carry special rules that allow you to move before combat and then you can move again after combat.
Stats on models are easy to track, everything is on the cards, combat is simple too. Each character has an Armour value and then on your card is how many dice you roll to cause damage against that armour value. Wounds are caused on a result of 5 or 6, if the model you are shooting at is in a trench or a bunker than the wounds are only caused on a 6.
For models with multiple mounds the bases have slots in which is part of the design on all the bases and wound markers look like little ammo creates and they neatly slip into the gaps along the edge of the base.
The boards are nice and well built from heavy card, and part of me wants to recreate them in a more 3D style which I have seen done by people and I am fairly sure I can do that as well. So I shall be playing with that design.
Really enjoyed playing the game, really like the game am looking forward to expansion and more tiles and characters to add to the system.
Only wish is that we could get them on sprues instead of prebuilt so they are easier to paint.
But I have to remember this is a board game. A very fun and fast board game.
Rivet Wars seriously go find a copy and play it. You might be surprised how good it actually is.
