The Age of Dante Review

Age of Dante: Postcards from Tuscany, Vol. I, is the first offering in a Battles of the Middle Ages series from High Flying Dice. Combat strengths of each unit (except missile units) are unknown until the first time they enter combat, when a chit is drawn for each unit involved. Overall, its a good system that needs some refinement—it is a little too simple—but it’s definitely a good start for the series, and its shortcomings can be easily fixed.
