A little while back I was contacted by Casey Willett of Black Locust Game Co. about a game called Regnum Angelica. Casey noted that he was looking for more Canadian exposure for their game and asked if I would be willing to review it.
I did a bit of research and found out that Regnum Angelica was originally kickstarted under the name Kingdom and was a two player card battle game fought between the arch angels led by Gabriel and the fallen angels under Beelzebub. The game appeared to have some chess like elements and an interesting combat mechanic so I agreed to check it out.
I've now played quite a few games of Regnum Angelica and I have to say that Black Locust has a rather solid interesting game here. It's a lot more deep than it first appears on the surface. The seemingly simple combat system actually adds a lot of tactical depth to the game. Added to the gameplay is a beautiful looking game with some really cool bits.
