New Games For KoffeeKlub - Andean Abyss & Wars Of The Roses

I've added two new games to the KoffeeKlub to-play pile courtesy of a friend selling on some of his collection. The first is Andean Abyss, by GMT Games.

Andean Abyss
Andean Abyss is a card-driven board game depicting insurgent and counter-insurgent conflicts in Columbia during the 1990s and 2000s. It is played out through four factions, the Government, the Cartels, the Marxists (FARC) and the paramilitary forces (AUC). Reviews online are mixed, but I'm eager to give this one a try soon.

The other game is from Z-Man Games, Wars of the Roses: Lancaster vs. York. Wars of the Roses tries to incorporate the military, political, economical and religious conflicts that exists in this period of English history. I played it once back at Baycon in 2010 and enjoyed the intrigue the game managed to create. 

Both games can host up to four-players and are not an immediately obvious fit to our KoffeeKlub sessions since we normally have five-players. Still, I'm sure we can work something out and get them both to that table.
