In our Rivals Plus review, we continue the trend of picking out our top three objectives, gambits, and upgrades, but we break down our rating by objective card strength, gambit card strength, and upgrade card strength.

In this episode, we continue (and wrap up for now!) our dive into the Rivals format. We catch up with Tres (so good to have him back on the show!) and his return to Underworlds via Rivals. Then we give an overview of each of the Harrowdeep Warbands released so far & the Illusory Might deck in the Rivals format (written up as a blog on https://blog.battle-mallet.com/2022/01/harrowdeep-warbands-rivals-review.html). For each Warband, we briefly cover the fighters, key Objective and Power Cards, the type of boards you'd want to use, and their playstyle. We also cover some tips on how to tackle each Warband and rate them on a Bronze/Silver/Gold scale for new players.

It only took them 5 months to record again, but Jason and Jerod got together to discuss the state of Underworlds, including their local Rivals league, their favorite parts of the new season, and some thoughts on competitive play.
As the world starts to open back up, we can't think of a better time to start playing Warhammer Underworlds (or start playing again)! Join us as we share what we love about the game, why we think now is one of the best times in the game's history to start playing, and how we think you should start if you're brand new to the game.
In short, buy the Warhammer Underworlds Starter Set & Essential Cards, then choose new warbands from there.
6 months after the last episode, we get back together to talk about what they've been up to, their favorite gaming memories over the past 6 months, what they're looking forward to in the future, and what the show will look like for the foreseeable future.
In short, with the pandemic and life/work changes, recordings will continue to be irregular, BUT, we're fairly regularly hanging out in our Discord channel (link below), sharing hobby progress, cracking jokes, & chatting about games.
Morgok's Krushas and Morgwaeth's Blade Coven are up for pre-order and we're here to share a few deck ideas and review our top picks of Universal cards from both sets.
Also, remember that even though the NOVA Open Convention was canceled, you can still donate money for raffle tickets and win some cool armies, warbands, and other miniatures (including a well-painted Rippa's Snarlfangs warband): https://www.novaopenfoundation.org/2020-summer-raffles-1
