I printed out the PDFs of the Melee maps and counters from the Kickstarter (adding the columns from the playmat) and tried a quick duel (Flavius vs. Ragnar). My wife came down, took one look at the components and said, approvingly, "It looks like a cross between Ogre and Dungeons & Dragons" which is probably the best description of the game I've ever heard!

Ragnar discovered quickly that a 1d-1 spear is pretty much completely useless against a 5-hit armor/shield combo. After taking a hit for sport he began to make for his door. Flavius knocked him down into HtH one hex from the door, but he was able to disengage through the door with no further damage. Final score - Flavius took 2 hits, Ragnar took 3 and successfully disengaged.

I love the feel of the system! It retains real tactical choices, even in a one-on-one duel!
