Warhammer: Invasion is the latest living card game from Fantasy Flight Games. After many years out of the CCG game, I decided to come back to it. The lure of Warhammer, great art, and a really fast playing 2 player game were too much to avoid.

A couple of months ago, Gameshark.com editor-in-chief Bill Abner said "no Barnes, I want to do the CHAOS IN THE OLD WORLD review".

This hobby is littered with the flotsam and jetsam of games that held up for five plays and were then traded away to someone else so that THEY could play it five times and trade it away.
