"Great heavy dungeon crawler"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I've been the overlord for 3 quests in a group of 4. Here's (some of) what we all loved:

  • Turns are quick
  • There is HEAPS of tactical choice
  • Players have lots of opportunities to perform actions outside their turn so there's very little downtime
  • There was no feeling that the players or the overlord had to take it easy on the opposition
  • All the heroes feel powerful
  • All the lieutenants and red monsters feel genuinely threatening
  • The component quality is very high

Here's (all of) what we didn't like:

  • The rules take a bit of getting used to regarding what does/doesn't take an action
  • The Line of Sight rule seems silly (but then again it works for and against both sides)

Seeking a fun-filled Dungeon Crawl- This game scratches that itch and does it well. Plenty for expansions as well if you are keen to expand.
