Tabletop Thursday: Iron Kingdoms Playtest

You know it’s TYG when, thanks to some technical difficulties, we end up having to post the first installment of our new occasional tabletop and boardgame series, Tabletop Thursday, on Friday.

In this installment, we playtest the new Iron Kingdoms RPG by Privateer Press. As you’ll see in the video, we ended up liking the game quite a bit. We particularly liked it in comparison to D&D 4E, which most of us have also played.

We hope you enjoy the video, and stay tuned for more installments of Tabletop Thursday on random Thursdays in the future (or Fridays, as the case may be!).

They also produce a third game which is more of a war-game/board-game hybrid, which seems pretty similar to Dust Tactics. If I’ve peaked your interest more after the jump.
