I'm thinking about backing the latest KS with the expansion, just wanted to know what people think about this game.

I like it. I have yet to play against another human as I rarely have time to play games these days (and thus can't really comment on balance and such - but I think I'd need quite a few 2-player games under my belt before getting a good feel for that), but I love the action dice mechanism. It's lots of fun, and nothing is a sure thing. Hints of games like Song of Blades and Heroes, or even GW's Warmaster (i.e., you spend a die to roll it to attempt something - and often have to beat a number to succeed) - which to me is a good thing.

And I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the figures are. Metal King studios (just one guy) did a great job with them. Very, very happy with my little toy soldiers!

I have played it several times as 1v1 games or 3v1 games (three play heroes and 1 evil) or 2v2 games. In all aspects the game is fantastic! Very easy to teach (5 minutes or less) and you can jump into a great game. It will only get better as more models are made. And will be absolutely amazing once the campaign book comes out. When that happens you can say bye to Frostgrave!

Also, the models are fantastic, as well as the cards and all the artwork on the cards and rulebook. All around a fantastic deal and game.

The game plays very well and the layout and readability of the cards are very unique and original. My only complaint is the lack of scenario variety. It really needs the new scenarios and narrative play the new Kickstarter is promising...
