First, lemme say i hate kickstarter exclusives that have special rules/characters/enemies. I hate the idea that there are features of the game that i miss simply because i never found out about the KS in time.

So that said, is this game worth it? I tried to look at the original KS but found it confusing what was bling (token upgrade to minis) and what was exclusive to Backers.

Thoughts?

You don't hate ks exclusives. You hate missing the ks.

The ks campaign description makes it very clear what is exclusive and what is not.

You would be missing some of the characters you can play in the game. The abilities of the characters are not super important, as many of them can also be obtained by leveling up. I don't think you miss a ton by not having them. But that is the gameplay element that was exclusive.

And to be clear, it's only some of them. You have access to six in the core box, two in the big expansion and 3-4 in the small character expansion. But there are several more that were exclusive stretch goal rewards.

The plastic token upgrades are not needed, but the KS characters give the game some much needed variety. That said, you could just buy the separate hero packs, each one gives you 3 hero's I think, and you'd be good to go.

not needed to plastic track markers, messenger, or building status (protected, damaged, destroyed). These are ok but the cardboards are just as good.

extra figures can be found on ebay if you need but really unneeded as well. The biggest thing is figures... but they mostly just have the level up abilities that you buy later as a starting ability. They are nice but looks like most will be purchaseable later/now.

2 small boxes of 3 characters to be exact and 2 characters in the expansion. 6 in the main box that is still 14 heros to play which is more than enough.

this. play it and maybe get the hero set with axel. the other set barely sees the table in our games. I may pickup expansion for the extra 2 heroes and cards.
