After a few disappointments with CMON and handling the shipping for non U.S. backers Arcadia finally arrived mid December. My 2ft cube of joy with and obscene amount of miniatures finally arrived and I couldn't be happier with my purchase!

Arcadia Quest is beautiful and having only got through about half a campaign thus far I am loving it! (despite currently getting a thrashing (damn exploding dice)) I am thoroughly looking forward to getting this on the table more in 2015 and whole intend to buy the additional character expansions that are on sale in America once they reach British shores.

As I came from a miniatures back ground and this was probably my favorite tabletop game through the 90's this is naturally high on my list. Not only do I get a nostalgia kick from this but also it is also a great game with simple mechanics that stay true to each race of the warhammer world.

I really enjoy the back and forth in match ups and more so when you are having 4 player games and it becomes extremely hectic. I feel like this game might benefit from a play mat though in order to organise and uniform set up a little.

I thoroughly enjoy this with any number of players although I do need to do a little additional reading to clarify I am playing everything correctly.

I played this at the local club and bought it as soon as possible along with Trains: Rising Sun. Somewhat ironic as after watching video reviews I thought it looked really bad, this really goes to show that you shouldn't judge a game until you've put it on the table yourself.

I took a punt on this after buying a whole load of Marvel Dice Masters stuff and immediately regretting the plunge back into CCG world.

After seeing this on Tabletop I was a little unsure but with little other options that interested me I got this in a trade and I've never looked back.

Lords of Vegas has seen a lot of value for me despite only owning it for about 6 months it hits my table regular and everyone seems to love it.The theme is excellent and I love the balance of luck and strategy.

I am currently considering upgrading it a little with clay chips as appose to paper cash.

I can't complain at this game at all, simple mechanics and fun with family. the artwork is gorgeous, I love the fact that they put doubloons on the back on the board and it inevitably pulls out everyone's worst pirate impression.

One of my first purchases about 2 years ago when I first began board gaming and this is a perfect gateway or entry level game and I still find it just as fun today as I did when I first bought it.
