I'm stoked as a childhood fan of EQ, but I'm wondering if this game is any good? Has anyone actually played it?

I got to play this at Denver Comic Con. I very much enjoyed it. We only played through the very first adventure. It's a resource management/card management game.

It does have the feel of ElfQuest. Each of the different characters have three different stages of life. As you go through the game they do change. I think the game comes with 7 different characters. I do wish that the whole tribe was available in the basic game. Further expansions will eventually add the whole tribe.

How the resource aspect of the game works is that the players, as a tribe, need to complete what ever stage they are at. Whether is be hunting for food or dealing with some sort of conflict. The different characters have different skills they are good at. At DCC we had three players. We used Pike, Skywise, and Nightfall. Nightfall was very good at hunting. Skywise had more social skills than Nightfall. I dont recall what Pike was good at. But I did have a great time playing.

The game does not have an RPG feel to it though. I so wish it did. I guess you could RP your character but thats not part of this game.

I have some great memories of playing the EQ RPG back in the 80s. I still have the character sheets.

Thanks for the info. Do you have a sense that it would scale well down to 2 players? If you don't have any great food elves in your party, are you screwed?

You can play with two players but I would recommend you use 2 characters each. The game is designed for 4 players. And your characters carry over from scenario to scenario. So if you are out of resources at the end of stage one then stage two is going to be a bit harder.

At DCC with played with 3 and we won by the skin of our teeth. If we would have played the second scenario we would probably have had a rough time of it. Having that extra elf would have made it a bit easier for us I think. Of course we had never played before and we got a few rules wrong so that probably contributed to our game result.
