The new format of the FFG boards has opened my eyes to whole new avenues of gaming. Pardon my ignorance, but I had no idea there was a Beowulf board game (let alone two from the same publisher!). I take it there are very different game mechanic between The Legend and The Movie? I ask because I fully intend to get my local retailer to get one or both in stock. Maybe its naive of me to ask which you would recommend.
Having a Honours degree in English makes me particularly interested in the notion of playing the role of a Thane for while. To be honest, the prospect of the cgi film did nothing to spark my imagination (I have yet to see it). What I'm getting at in a very round-a-bout way is asking if this game captures the flavour and spirit of the legend?
