Harbour has only just come to my attention via Mr Boydell's blog and it seems my kinda game ...

So, do these cards add any value to the base game?

If yes, I want them and don't want the base game without them and if they are unavailable I'll pass on the base game.
If no, well that's good and I can get the base game and not worry about not having something worthless.

Opinions?

That's kind of back and white. If they don't add value, why were they even made? Of course they add value, the question is whether there's enough value without them...

I'd look at them as something like an expansion. There are many characters in the base game, so plenty to enjoy there. If you end up liking it and playing it a lot, to the point you've played out all the characters, then you can seek out the additional characters.

In other words, in my opinion, there's plenty of value in the game without the additional characters, and the additional characters also add value to the game (in the same way any expansion does).

Thanks for that. It meets my expectations

Unfortunately it seems the cards are not going to be available in the retail chain (only for the Kickstartetd version) so I think I'll pass. I'm too much of a completionist not to be able to get an expansion for a game I enjoy. Entirely my own weirdness, of course, but I've enough unplayed games to keep me going for a while!

Thanks for the reply.

I don't believe they were exclusive to kickstarter, but I don't think they're going to be in retail stores either. They may be gettable some other way.

Hard to say with Amazon. If your copy is an English copy, it could have been some mix-up with the boxes, or you might have gotten it from an entirely different vendor who was selling through Amazon and had launch copies.

In either case, congrats!
