Full Tilt Light

The Warhammer world is known for its epic battles and grand quests, but amidst the chaos of war, there's room for a different kind of adventure - the thrilling sport of jousting. Enter "Full Tilt," a jousting game set in the heart of the Warhammer realm, where I, alongside my daughter Willow, embarked on a quest for glory armed with nothing but our courage, skill, and, of course, tilted lances.

In the midst of Warhammer's sprawling landscapes and ancient castles, Full Tilt transports us to tournaments where chivalry and honor take center stage. The jousting grounds are surrounded by banners bearing the emblems of various factions, echoing the rich lore of the Warhammer universe.

Before the jousting begins, Willow and I select our armor, each piece adorned with intricate details inspired by Warhammer aesthetics. As we gear up, the clinking of metal resonates through the air, as our trusty steeds, stand ready for the challenge.

Armed with our tilted lances, we enter the jousting arena with a sense of excitement. The tilt of the lance adds an extra layer of strategy to the game, requiring precision and timing in each charge. As we prepare for our first clash, the crowd roars in anticipation.

Full Tilt is not just about charging blindly. Each joust is a tactical dance, a careful balance between offense and defense. Willow surprises me with her adept handling of her knight making every joust a unique and unpredictable encounter.

Between rounds, Willow and I find ourselves getting more excited. The jousting tournaments are not just battles of skill; they become narratives of heroism, with each clash echoing the legendary tales of Warhammer champions.

Full Tilt isn't just a game, we share laughter and cheers, the jousting arena transforms into a realm of shared memories and timeless moments. Willow's enthusiasm for the game mirrors her growing curiosity about wargaming.

Full Tilt has become more than just a jousting game; it's a portal to the fantastical realms of Warhammer where a father and daughter forge tales of glory together. As our tilted lances clash, we weave our own stories amidst the tapestry of Warhammer lore, creating memories that will endure long after the cheers of the jousting crowd fade away. In the Warhammer world, where battles are fought and legends are born, Full Tilt stands as a testament to the enduring power of shared adventures.


  1. Not only you got me interested in the game itself, you really made the experience so great playing with your daughter. Kudos to you!

    1. They actually just rereleased in on Warhammer Community check it out.

  2. such a good read, kinda inspiring in a way.
    i remember this game back in the day, and lost the materials to play it.
    only to come across a full intact White Dwarf issue at a local gaming convention few years ago, then to find several unpainted Bretonnian knights at the same convention. it was a good day that day.

  3. Now that, sir, is the awesome we've come to expect from Give 'Em Lead! Sharing the joy of the game with a new generation of die rollers . . . oh, magnificent! Keep it up! That's the sort of game where everyone wins, and that is, in my opinion, the best kind.
