Frostgrave Second Edition

I arrived home from my latest road trip with son and heir to view potential universities to find a parcel waiting for me.

Exciting - new toys!

It was of course the second edition rules for Frostgrave.

I wasn't going to buy these. I've not played for ages and had been busy telling myself that even if I wanted to play again there was nothing to stop me using the first edition.

And then I saw the adverts. And the nice new artwork. But mostly I remembered how much I'd loved playing it with the kids, how much I liked the setting and most of all how great the models are.

So I went for the advanced order of the rulebook.

Which I topped up, just a little. The rules came with a free apprentice, which looks great, and so I bought the wizard to match.

And then i bought the genie with lamp, which I've always really liked as a model, just never got around to buying.

Martin and I had a brief chat, and we might be up for a few games. So I'm looking forward to slapping a little paint on these and venturing back into Felstad.


  1. Looking forward to seeing what you think. I've been looking at this as a potential gateway game for my daughters (ages 12 and 8), and then some of the guys at our local shop started talking about playing, so there's even more incentive for me to look into it.

    1. It's a great game with the kids in my experience. If you look back under the Frostgrave label here you'll find some examples of me playing with my boys when they were similar ages.

  2. Been resisting 2nd Ed for the same reasons but might get tempted if sufficient changes to warrant the purchase. Any good?
