We just played for the first time tonight, after having the game on the shelf for three weeks or so. God damn it is hard. It feels like a cross between Pathfinder:ACG, LOTR:LCG and in part Assault on Doomrock. We found it quite fiddly and we've probably missed a couple of rules. Certainly not an elegant game. Will try again tomorrow night.

Ah sorry about that. Still, a lot of people should have it from.Spiel, they had tons of boxes at their booth.

Perhaps asking in Deutsch would help?

Actually, 75% of the copies we had at Spiel were for backers who chose Essen pick up. But during The next 2 weeks many more will be delivered so perhaps more discussion will spark.

A friend is waiting for the ks to arrive and I'm planning a first game this week. Read the rules a few times and did the tutorial from their website. Questions may come.

I am unhappy to report that my gaming group has indicated that they are only interested in either complex war-games or 18xx games. So I doubt I will get to play much until I figure out how to form a new game group given my schedule. Things were different a few months ago...

It takes some time to learn. A great learning curve but darn well worth it. Mistfall is my favorite adventure card game hands down. While the first 5 plays left me confused at many points and flummoxed by some encounters and progressions, the second 5 were clicking on all cylinders and truly bringing the wow factor out of me. Few games have such a "yes!" feeling when you pull it off and beat the boss. Keep on it. Invest the time. It's worth it.

Being considered. Fortunately for me I like complex wargames. If I can figure something out I can always play fun games (like this) with other people on nights when a8xx is on the table (I am not a fan of those games - Different games for different folks).

Everyone's busy talking about how Arkham and Lotr are dying, obviously.

Yeah, it's an in-joke.

Waiting on mine.

I grabbed the core set a while back but haven't played it because I wanted to wait for the errata'd cards.

Still processing the new characters, so no playthroughs I'd consider "shareable" yet, but I plan to be posting a few, yeah.

Player's Guides for the new characters will also be forthcoming, deadmarlowe and I are going to split those up somehow once his copy arrives.

It might take some time though, because prettyboy JPop boyband road trip theater Final Fantasy 15. zombie

Took 2.25 pages of densely scribbled arcane notes during a somewhat haphazard Mother of Nightmares playthrough, so expect a writeup of that in the next days.
Used a somewhat haphazard group of Aseke, Sigraed, Durgen, Valkea - really not a great quest for Sigraed, can't keep her burn recursal engine going well. Or I just can't manage it well yet. shake

P.S. The new Focused Thrust (changed from the deeply mediocre version PnP Valkea had) is awesome.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
2-shotted the boss, lol.
