Like a board game you play to death then put on the shelf to bring out on special occasions, but with street urchins and priest-stabbing.

A very different kind of turn-based game, that proves multiplayer action doesn't have to involve first person shooting.

Anyone who is a turn based strategy game fan should be checking out Antihero, which deserves to find an audience so that its multiplayer base can flourish. This is a game that is easy to learn with a campaign that teaches you all the basics, but it can then throws a number of challenging scenarios at you. Antihero is a game that offers something a little different in the strategy genre, that's easy to learn before throwing some challenging scenarios at you, and is genuinely fun to play.
