Knights of the Cross is a deck-building game loosely based on a historical novel written in the 1900s called Krzyżacy. I say loosely based because the game does follow the events portrayed in the books regarding Medieval Poland. However, It also features magic and busty elven women in string bikinis.
Dragon Dawn is a rather small expansion for Age of Wonders 4 but still features some pretty game-changing additions to the game, including the ability to be an actual whole-ass dragon. It also adds two new tomes with new spells and units, a new lizardfolk body type for your factions, and a dragon-focused realm option to take on.
Age of Wonders 4 attempts to take that variety one step further by taking apart the various pieces that make up a faction’s jigsaw puzzle, and handing them to you. You can create your own factions and rulers in Age of Wonders 4, both to play as and against. You can even customize the very realms you play on.
