In this strategy game, charm is in overdrive while the combat elements are a mix of the familiar as well as customizable elements. Wintermoor Tactics Club plays out like a mystery-adventure novel, with characters that pack wonderful, fully fleshed out backstories. For tabletop fans, there are some plots that have Dungeon and Dragons elements (although in this game, it's called C&C for Curses and Catacombs) In fact, Alicia, the main character, is a wizard in her club at school, and describes the fights happening between clubs from her perspective. Players will also run into eclectic characters and a fair amount of combat, which is turn-based but can be very forgiving, which makes the strategy and role-playing an ideal intro into these genres for younger players.

The game offers a wonderful mix of combat and story, balancing the two evenly while keeping you interested in playing additional chapters. The school itself is also packed full of diverse characters, including some bullies, but also some memorable characters. Plus, with seven characters that can join the combat group, and the ability to customize their skill sets to create a nice variety of combat styles, Wintermoor Tactics Club offers something for everyone. The gameplay is also rounded out by the inviting graphics and sound, which helps to draw you into each fight. While the story may be a touch predictable at times, Wintermoor has more than enough twists to smooth those pitfalls out delightfully. Overall, Wintermoor Tactics Club is a very well done game that should appeal to a broad base of gamers.
