More Saga

Last Friday, we broke out Saga again. I was hoping to run the Escort scenario, but the player with all the wagons canceled at the last minute. We fell back on killing each other's Warlords. We set up with six points each this time, and one army of each faction. It wound up going a little long, though, and I think it probably would have been better to have stuck with either four point armies or a different scenario. Still, everybody seemed to have fun. I was reminded to take stop motion video of this game, click More to view it.
On the left are the Normans (near) and the Vikings; on the right are the Welsh (near) and the Anglo-Danes. When we called it, the Norman warlord had been killed, but the Vikings were pressing in pretty hard.


  1. Brilliant idea, will post a link to this on the Saga forum

  2. Andy, you're a genius. This is an iOS app?

    1. Yes, this is an iOS app. I just grabbed the first one I saw that had decent reviews-- there were several options, IIRC.

      Honestly, I need to look around again. This app got updated and now I don't seem to be able to film in portrait mode, which might be better suited for a table. Although, I'm surprised at how well landscape worked.

      Also, I'd like higher def output.
