We picked up Grimslingers and are trying to play the base game with items added in. It seems like there isn't a reason to play a spell (other than maybe two of them) when items are used as you can just keep belting the opponent with items. I have a feeling maybe we're playing it wrong?
Since you can always have up to 2 items in your hand, and you can always draw an item at the start of each "round" why wouldn't you always just play an item instead of a spell?
Thanks in advance!
Which edition of the game are you playing? First or Second? I can't see how you'd be able to only use items to win in either edition.
I'd also check out the third edition rules posted here on BGG.
