A friend's KS copy arrived the other day and while the components made us smile, the rule book had quite the opposite effect. We're old gamers and even we had trouble working out what goes where and how and how does this mechanism work exactly?

We played through an incomplete game that, while fun, was a lot more difficult and less free-flowing than it should have been.

Today I watched the videos and they were everything the rule book should have been. I think it's a misstep, especially for the casual gamer, that videos be a pre-requisite to fully enjoying the game, but in this instance I highly recommend them.

Overall we did have a lot of fun playing (even if we did unwittingly select the expert level heroes) and with my new found knowledge I'm keen to give it another go.
