Five Miniature Games To Get You Into The Hobby

In the cross-section of the tabletop gaming world, miniature gaming has traditionally been especially challenging to embrace as a newcomer. The tactical rules seem daunting, the player base can seem set in its ways and opinions, the price factor of collecting is daunting, and painting minis is really an entire hobby all on its own. Even with those factors, miniature games of all sorts have continued to thrive, simply because it’s so darn fun to lay all those little figures out on a table and dive into a big battle.

Most of the above concerns are very real, and I wouldn’t argue with a potential player that there are some barriers for getting into the joy of miniature gaming. With that said, several recent games have made major strides in easing the onboarding process for new players, with clearly written and conceived rulesets, pre-built (or even pre-painted) minis, and smartly structured starter packs to get you into games quickly.

Whether you’ve always wanted to dive into a great miniature game but never knew where to start, or you’re an experienced veteran of many tabletop wars, here are some great recent miniature games that respect your time and provide a solid ramp-up into play.

Hunting For Glory In Legendary Eleven

Hunting For Glory In Legendary Eleven

Eclipse Games' Legendary Eleven doesn't just go back to a simpler gameplay time for soccer video games, it also mines the sports' storied past in a non-licensed sports title (Xbox One, Switch, PC via Steam Early Access) based around international teams from the '70s and '80s.

The game features 44 countries (with the likes of Algeria, Wales, Czechoslovakia, West/East Germany, USA, Uruguay, and many more) and three main modes: Friendlies, Legendary matches, and Championship. There is also online play (I played the PC edition), but by Eclipse's own admission, this isn't very fleshed out at the moment. Local multiplayer is a more viable option if you're looking to play against others.

The Championship mode centers around the classic group+elimination stages format, and can be enjoyed in either four regional cups or a World cup-like tournament. The Legendary mode, on the other hand, focuses on thrilling moments from the international stage, replicating the Argentina/England "Hand of God" 1986 World Cup quarterfinal (with Armando a stand-in for Maradona), as well as challenging feats such as scoring four goals as the Netherlands against Argentina in 1974.

Asgard's Wrath Is Virtual Reality's Promising New Step

In this month's issue, we have the first hands-on preview of Asgard's Wrath, the newest game from Sly Cooper 4 developers at Sanzaru Games. After a number of successful virtual reality titles like Ripcoil and Marvel Powers United, Sanzaru has teamed up with Oculus for a new virtual reality action game unlike any other. Asgard's Wrath hopes to bring a full, uncompromised action journey to the Oculus Rift with a full-length campaign, side quests, boss battles, and more steeped heavily in Norse mythology.

In the feature you can read in the digital issue, you can learn all about the way Asgard's Wrath is bringing the kind of gameplay you would expect from a full-fledged console title with all the benefits of VR. Combat in the game requires every tool at your disposal, including a level of physicality that will make the you feel like you're fighting off the hordes of Hel yourself.

The story of Asgard's Wrath will take players on a tour through Norse mythology with Sanzaru's own spin on it. The game tells the tale of the twilight of the Norse gods as they struggle to maintain relevance in the face of a changing world. With key players like Loki, Odin, Heimdall, and others playing roles in the story, the plot of the game will take players through an epic journey of gods and the humans who worship them.
