My Thoughts on Shadespire by Games Workshop (Review)

Posted on February 22nd, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire is a very big departure from what I’ve played. Really, the only games I’ve played for tabletop has been Warhammer 40K and Blood Bowl. I suppose Shadespire is like Blood Bowl in that it’s far more a board game than tabl…
