I've been thinking about getting this for a while. The main thing stopping me is that I don't often play 2 player games. I know this will play more than 2 players, but I don't think I'd do that very often.

So, my question is, if this game only comes out a couple of times a year, will I have to re-learn the rules every time I go to play or is it fairly straight forward to pick up again with just a quick skimming of a few rules?

I just played after an 8 month gap, and though I was very worried I'd be nearly starting from scratch--(I played lots of other games in between)-- a quick skim got me back up to speed. I was pleasantly surprised how quickly it came back.

I'm in the same boat. I usually only get this out 3-4 times a year. I find that the rules are relatively easy to pick up. Remembering the strategies is another story.

Fear cannot be banished, but it can be calm and without panic; it can be mitigated by reason and evaluation.

I haven't played in a while and wouldn't need the rules to play again minus the setup instructions.

It's not a difficult game once learned.

You should have no major problems playing this game after a hiatus of a few weeks to months. The turn order and combat round order are layed out on the back of the instruction book, when playing the cards, follow their instructions. The game has a very nice rules reference book for anything you may of forgotten over time, or are unsure about.
I've only had two complete playthroughs with my son, after learning the game with a couple rounds of solo/instructional type play, and I think that I could jump right back into it after a considerable time away, just keep the rulebook and rules reference handy.

Happy Gaming!

P.S. I think you may surprise yourself and play this game a little more often than you think. It is an excellent game.

I play my board games only about once a month, so this game probably won't get played too much even though its a great game. Fortunately though, the rules are actually quite simple. It's the strategy that takes some thinking.

Great question. I feel that although there is a lot of depth to the game, the rules are fairly easy to remind yourself of especially if you print off the Quick Reference Player Aid for each player. https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/130954/quick-reference-an...

I'm not super good at remembering rules and played the game after about 6 months. It was pretty easy to just pick up and go.

There are some finnicky rules that you might forget or mess up on, but the game otherwise plays pretty intuitively.
