I like euro games, worker placement and all kind of strategic games. I also like thematic game. I also like to have direct conflict on my game. Personally I like miniatures in my board game, but somehow all the game I played didn't fit my style of mechanic n strategic aspect as often found on eurogames. I've played mansion of madness, thief of cadwallon, and I felt something is missing. In the future I plan to buy Runewars, will it worth?

Short answer: Yes! Definetly!

Long Answer: Its a great game! At first it was overwhelming tha so much is going on.. and its took us about 8 hours to complete a session with mixed feelings. As we played more and more its has grown to be one of hour favorites! And we still dont use the advanced rules

I havent played mansions of madness. But if with " thief of cadwallon" you mean Cadwallon:City of Thieves then the only things in common are Miniautres and Fantasy Flight Games

I think Kemet will be an easier game to pick up, and will be more familiar. KEMET has worker placement . Runewars is fiddlier and longer, and less elegant. Runewars I do love for the strategy cards and combat system..

Kemet most definitely does not have worker placement.

Kemet is nothing like Runewars.

I'm not sure if Runewars is what you're looking for. Have you looked at Conquest of Nerath?

If you want a real Ameritrash game, a long one where you build army, expend and fight! Runewars is an amazing one!!!


If you want something shorter, closer to a Euro let say, go with Kemet!
