Go to target. They will price match. Plus 5 % off for using their redcard!

Got one copy just for the miniature and art. This game is really poorly designed though...

Hmmm, why do you say that? I actually just ordered a copy but I could be dissuaded if it isn't fun

Well plus you would have it in your hands immediately. I think that might be the greater benefit.

Put this in my cart and got distracted and let the timer expire. I hate that!

It's unbalanced with limited replayability, though it's cheap and everyone should buy it, even just to display it on the shelf.

It's a skirmish game. It's replayable for as long as you enjoy skirmishing. As far as balance, I haven't seen anything especially unbalanced. For $20 this is a must buy for anyone that even vaguely enjoys skirmish games.

For what it's worth both Dice Tower and Board Game Brawl gave this game very favorable reviews. I've not heard a lot about it being unbalanced, and if nothing else, I've only heard most people who've played the game say it was "fun." If there's 15-20 hours of messing around inside the core box, then you can't really go wrong for the price of the deal.

I received my copy a few weeks ago and I was pleasantly surprised with the components. I can't wait to play on my Heroscape landscapes, that'll add some replayability for sure.

If I remember correctly the same guy complained about the game in the last deal thread, he's a vocal minority with an apparent ax to grind.

Yup, only bad games get discounted.

I think this game is getting discounted because of the expansion coming out soon. By doing a flash sale, they'll get this product into a lot more hands. Then, if the game is any fun, they'll be able to push a lot more of the expansion. The expansion has both Ob Nixilis and an Eldrazi (so that should be pretty cool!)

IMO, I found it an odd strategy that they didn't release at least 1 expansion with the core set from the start. Also, the expansion doesn't include any new terrain, and I would have thought they'd have pumped out new battle maps or at least 3D terrain packs by this point. Who can tell with Hasbro's marketing strategy?

Alright well I'm taking my chances. I don't really own any true skirmish games and I'd like to mess around either one. And this is way cheaper than something like Imperial Assault. If I don't get to play it much I'm sure I can sell or trade it away for most of its value.

They're worth practicing painting. Weren't these mini's originally from the D&D miniatures line?

$21 for 35 miniatures is better than most KS!

It's basicly Heroscape without the cool 3d plastic terrain, and they added some deck building aspect by adding a magic spell deck. Your only limited by your imagination or lack of.....
