I wasn't sure about posting this as a review, as it's more an opinion(ated!) piece, so it's ended up here. I basically do really like the game. I'll probably take some flak for it anyway, but I had to get it off my chest...

I think you've just missed the irony in that statement. ;)

I ahven't played wither version of Mansions but am keen to try the new edition.

I think you made some valid points, especially the bases. I much, much prefer your customised version.

Thanks for the article I'm still keen to try it but I also get your point.

Hey, definitely DO try it! I really like the game, and the app works surprisingly well, especially when it comes to introducing new players. This wasn't so much a "this game is crap!" review so much as a "This game is good... but could have been sooo much more!".

Plus I just feel that for the price, you should expect more from a developer.

Does this mean we will get the inevitable thread of why Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition is greater than you think! cool

I loved the article, you are spot on!

I may be in the minority here, but I mostly regret my purchase.

Worry not... just hang on to it for about 5 years and it'll be worth a small fortune on ebay ;)

Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition is exactly as great as I think by definition.

I have it but I haven't played it yet. But the monster miniatures are already in a bottom drawer somewhere and won't be seen again until I get a Call of Cthulu campaign going. Just wish they'd sold it with tokens, it would have probably cut the price of the game in half.

Otherwise, I'll reserve judgement until I've got it to the table.

I really enjoyed your article. I might not have all the issues you do with the game, but do agree with more than a few points you made like the app, miniature bases, and Kickstarter idea(all games should just do this lol...maybe cause I love freebies so much). Still love the game, but maybe they can change all of the above for the third edition!

A board game who needs work with app, is not a TRUE board game. Simple that.

I agree that the bases are garbage.
Hell most of my cultists minis wouldn't even fit in their base because of the poor quality. I had to shim my way in the base with a knife. And then some I had to ply the poor plastic to fit the second attachment.
I cried a little since I paid so much for the poor quality.
