The anticipation I had for this game is fading over time and that seems such a shame. I had such hopes for this. Read through the other threads on BGG for this game to get a few ideas on issues being reported (there aren't many threads and none of them are long at all). There are some mentioned problems that give me pause. But the biggest issue (which is mentioned again and again) is the resounding silence of feedback period. Why is next to no one even talking about this game? Danger, Will Robinson. While I still monitor in the hopes of reading something that will reassure me enough to buy in (I'm here right now, aren't I?), I'm not holding my breath any longer with it panning out for this game.
So much scorn is voiced for the idea of a solo RPG but I am still on the lookout for I love the idea. It will happen. It will happen.
I brought it with me on a trip last year, thinking I would have time to play. I did not have time to even think about playing. My copy somehow got shuffled into my "travel games" pile when I got home and I forgot about it. I have moved it back onto my "to be played" pile, but I am waaaaay behind.
There is a lot to like about it and I do look forward to the session.
After watching the videos Deano has made this month, I'm enticed to give it another shot, although he had some major bad luck in his playthrough. Search YouTube for "Playing Journey to the Overland" or see this playlist and skip to the Playing or the video just before the Playing one. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDV4wc6uP3Yk41-8QEyT3e...
