So I tried the print and play version with my friends over the weekend. It involved some time cutting and so on and wow it was worth it. This is one of the most cool games I play in some time. The montage turns are more tactics and thinking and then the fights are action-ful and exciting. Every player's turn is like a mini-game which involved everyone. We played aggressive killing each other bosses and taking skills they wanted.
We play a lot of games so it was easy to understand and start playing. My only comment was it took some time to get used to which minions where which but we used meeples so I think miniatures help with this. You need to know who is who to make quick decision (we played with timer like in the designer video).
