There are TOO MANY misprints on tiles, the board and charters in the new edition of 1830. AVOID until the problems are solved or buy another correctly printed 18xx game...

If you already own Agricola: Why not play Agricola 2-player instead?

This plays like a cut down version...

If you don't own Agricola: Buy Agricola instead.

You will have a better game, with more options and supporting more players.

Some tiles create great combos but you may never get them. The rules are badly written and need errata.

It looks like it needed much more playtesting to balance the different tiles.

The design of the tracks in the main board makes the tracks hard to read.

Much better and more tactical with 4-5 players. If only 2 are playing there's no shortage of different gladiators to choose from during setup (with 4-5 players you must decide which gladiators to get and when - before the other players get them) and the game ends as a dicefest...

After 3 plays it is one of the worst games i ever played. It is unbalanced, luck driven and feels unplaytested.

Delay the adventurers with traps/generic tiles, keep your monsters back and when they activate go for the fighter.

Boring!

IMPORTANT NOTE: While the rest of the components are printed on heavy cardboard, object tokens are printed on *very* thin cardboard (probably to lower printing costs) severely affecting gameplay as they are easily recognizable during play!

Works surprising well for a 2 player game with auctions. Every turn is tense as you try to figure out the right number of tiles to draw and the right price to buy/sell.

It forces you to buy a second M44 set and EVERY expansion released until today if you want to be able to play all 15 scenarios!

I don't like these marketing tricks...

The mix of miniatures from the original and the cardboard soldiers from this do not match! Buy a second copy of the original if you want to play Overlord properly and avoid this half-baked attempt.

The map is of the worst quality (cheap uncoated paper)... Too expensive for what it offers!

My rating would be higher if the quality of the board was of the same level as the board of the main game.

Strange game! The final scoring was very close but it varied wildly during the game. There are many things to consider but i don't know how much you can control the game as you can easily get blocked.

The quality of the components is terrible... the tokens split in two, there are text lines missing from the cards and the board tears in two after a few games. Avoid!

The game is tactical. Many cards do not appear during the game and that adds replayability, but can also ruin your game...

The game is heavily based on auctions and the rules are simple, but there are *many* things to consider during play - which colors to support, what pieces to auction and when, how much to pay, when to extend a building zone, the mayor, e.t.c.
