Good Game

****( )

I ran about 12 games for 20+ people at the FLGS. We had varying levels of boardgame experience, from none to heaps. Only 3 people did not enjoy the game. And 6 of us plan on buying the game upon release.

None of us had played the 1st Edition so we decided to learn as we played. The first game took about 1 hr and 15 minutes to play the introduction scenario, learning as we went. The next scenario (chosen from the middle of the quest list) took 50 minutes to play with about 10 minutes of looking up rules for new options. By the end of the night we played using the campaign rules which unlock more abilities and options. The rules seemed daunting at first, but they made sense and were presented well.

We replayed a few of the scenarios and discovered there is no value in replaying a quest with players that have run it before. They easily won without much of a problem.

But the box has enough materials to create your own scenarios. I created a couple myself easily. I think that is the main draw of this game.

The only rules question we had:
- Can the necromancer's minion activate the first turn it is summoned?

The player complaints:
1) Too easy (experienced war-boardgamer)
2) Too hard (player had problems keeping track of abilities, even though cards with abilities on them were provided)
3) Not enough classes (only 8)

A quick search reveals the previous edition had expansions, which I can't wait to see for this game!
