At first this game give me expectation of playing SPACEHULK in small package. I dont mind the card format replacing the original SpaceHulk mini and tiles.. but when i play it again and again, the randomness of the dice breaks the game for me. Yes the Survival Ratio is about the same as with the original Space Hulk but at least there is lot of stuff to do / to prevent disaster... here in SHDA you just 1 dice away from disaster (unless you got support token for re-roll)..

a good concept but still too raw and not worthy enough to replace SPACEHULK the boardgame..

regards

I had heard so many good things about it, yet after buying I couldn't understand any of them. I thought this game was devoid of theme, purely mechanical, and deathly dull...

Bought this for my son as a birthday present a while back. He likes space themes and card games.

For me, figuring out how to play this game was very challenging.

I hated the symbols and icons. And the other symbols and icons. And then there were more symbols and icons to learn, as well as reading all of the cards and the terminology.

Barf.

Thankfully, this game plays quickly.

I still play it when my son requests it ( I like playing ANY game with him), but I would not recommend this game to anyone.

Another FFG Card game that i want to love. the Artwork and production quality is stunning.. i love LOTR setting so this game is a must buy for me. After initial rush gone, i find it too mechanical and lacking the tolkienese narative.. its like im playing with generic fantasy heroes. The game feels like a bad abstraction of questing, combat and travelling in middle earth. Lot of time was spent on this game and trying out multiple decks but then again the mechanic of deck building breaks the already limited immersion. I know this game is good , but somehow i missed the fun and maybe im not cut out for these abstract cardgames.

I got this as a Christmas present one year (after being given hints that I'd be getting something 'Zombie-themed) and had to work hard to conceal my disappointment. I'd played the game with the gift giver about 6 months before and it was a laugh - we had 10 people at the table so it was mostly a social interaction thing with the game being there for laughs. Apparently my having a great time at this event convinced the gift giver that I must really love Munchkin. In fact a loathe this game and it is now on (permanent) loan to a friend of mine whose kids like it. It really is just about the worse game I own but I can't just sell/give it away since it was a gift. *sigh*

The major problems with this game could be used as a template for why I am reluctant to buy FFG games.

Too much down time
Too fiddly
Too much chance
Too many pieces
Too much text
Too many unanswered questions in the rule book
Too many FAQ's
Too many expansions
Too much style over substance

I believe this is the worst game in the top 100.

When I think of the money I spent to get this game it makes me sick. It's way too long for the game it is and the while interesting I think it could have been simplified to make for a better game. We got through 2 turns and were over it.

I was hoping for something fast and funny, easy to learn and quick to play. Instead, everyone spends time trying to understand what the race/powers mean and counting points every round. Then they started to pile on the expansions. I traded this one a while ago. I tried again with the iPad app and realized I it's the game itself I hated, more than anything else.

I mentioned this in the other thread, but I'll do it again here. I really, really did not care for the combat in this game. It was anti-climactic, it was a little silly, and it just fell flat with us. We were rolling our eyes at it and groaning when it came up. Ultimately, we stopped confronting one another and engaging in combat because it just totally killed the ambiance. The rest of the game, I thought, was pretty good, but the combat felt like we were hitting pause on the game and playing a poorly thought-out card game for a few minutes. No one watched the "battles," no one cared, no one cheered, no one was invested. It was basically a default bathroom break.

Subsequent plays of this game were basically treating it like a non-confrontational Eurogame, and nobody really felt shortchanged.

I thought this was going to be the mother of all East Front games, unfortunately it didn't do it for me.

I think a bit too much chrome in places and a vague rule book didn't help

I dont own many Wallace games, but a few of the recent ones have been pretty good. So I decided to get this one.

However, the game is horribly flawed. Whilst you are presented with a few choices, there is one strategy which is completely broken and wins every time. The loan mechanic doesn't work at all, the components are poor. There may have been a good game in there somewhere, but with all the major redesign changes along the way, it felt like this one was just rushed out without being actually finished.

I wish I'd bought Age of Industry instead.

I was on the P500 list for this one. Waited...waited....waited. Read the rules. Reread the rules...waited. Then when the waiting was done...I waited. I finally got my copy...and thought it was pretty dull. I loved what I read of the game thought it was going to be greatness but in the end just found it DULL. Played it a full 4 times before giving up on it and trading it off.

I bought this one in the hopes that my wife would play. She loves zombie/horror movies. The game was an epic fail with her and she initially refused to play it ever again. Although I cajoled her to try again with friends and family this just produced such a negative reaction amongst every female who played it that I ended up giving it away to a friend last week. I don't miss it.

I made the mistake of jumping headfirst into this game, buying the base game and everything up to Dragonspire. Boy was that a mistake. I thought I'd like it. I like deck building, and liked the dungeon crawl theme. Unfortunately the game seemed like a huge mess to me. Compared to the elegant design of Dominion(even the haters have to admit the game is well designed), this game was just an exercise in frustration. It seemed like each expansion was trying to fix the issues with the one before it. The rules were a mess, the clarity of the text on many of the cards were a mess..it was just ugly for me.

Fortunately I was able to sell everything and at least recoup some of my investment. I also learned a valuable lesson about not jumping headfirst into a gaming system right away.

i miss DnD. i love DnD. i game largely with my wife - and she loved DnD. so a dungeon-crawl for 2 players? and relatively cheap???

sounded great.

in reality - and bear in mind i've only played the one, disappointing time - this was an analysis paralysis prone chess match. this was the game that finally made me realize that i don't like perfect information games. i like games with a healthy dose of luck. so you a) don't have to THINK so bloody much, and b) if you lose, you can blame the luck! this makes gaming so much funner. AND better, when you play largely with your spouse. and when she is better at thinky games than you.

replaced largely by Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation (Deluxe Edition). still thinky, but there is a large random factor (you don't know where all your opponent's pieces are). she still wins more, but i can blame luck...

I read a bunch of reviews that just raved how the game was so FUN. I thought "Hey, I want a fun game!". So I put it on my Math Trade selections. We've played it twice now, and I'm just not getting it I guess. Perhaps I just don't like "fun" games. I guess it will go back up for trade and hopefully find someone who will appreciate it more than I do, but perhaps we'll take one more shot at it first.

It was hard for me to teach with all of the not very logical rules about tile placement, very dry, extremely fiddly. I really wanted to like it, but for the reasons above, my husband loathed it at first sight and wished the dynamite tiles were real. devil So it was traded away. Oh well. zombie

I played a single five player game, and two players were eliminated within 10 minutes. Every one else kept playing for another twenty minutes without even a single bird coming up. The remaining players ended up quitting.

The game seemed too deadly. The "row" cards were way too random, and the provision card draft just wasn't interesting. Also, the equipment wasn't useful enough.

Not a good first impression.

I just don't understand the love this game gets. I don't think it's a horrible game, but I don't really care for it either. It's just....boring. My first and only game of this, I slept walked to a victory...and I was bored every minute of it.

In the same niche (medium weight worker placement), I'd much rather play Egizia, Fresco, Carson City, or Magnum Sal.

I've played A LOT of new games over the last year, and this was probably my least favorite. My opinion may be a bit jaded because it gets an incredible amount of love on bgg, but....bleh.
