I just saw this listed on CoolStuffInc:

http://www.coolstuffinc.com/p/240733

Did I miss something? I didn't find it on the Tasty Minstrel Games website.

Anyhow, estimated release is 4 May.

Amazing! It already has four 1-star reviews on CSI and it's not even released yet.

I heard back from the publisher today. I'd sent a couple of e-mails, asking about info, updated release date, etc.

Their answer was, "Henchmen is already out," and a link to the CSI page. (Which does indeed show that Henchmen is available, and no longer on pre-order.)

If Henchmen is as good as the rest of the Dungeon Roll releases, I'm sure I'll love it. That doesn't change the fact that I'm very surprized at the total lack of publicity, marketing, or even basic information surrounding this release.

Weird.

I'll try and see if I can find it somewhere else closer to me, because from CSI, it'll cost me four times the price of the pack in shipping fees wow

And I agree, why such a discreet release ?

Hi Steve, I contacted another BGG user (cdarlage) who owns this and asked for an overview. He kindly responded and had this to say:

It comes with 8 henchmen. At the beginning of the game you can buy 1 if you want. They give you a 1 time use power for that delve. Before you begin your next delve, you can spend 1 treasure to buy another henchman and you can also spend 1 treasure or 1 cleric to refresh your other henchman. The same for your third delve. It is pretty neat. If you like Dungeon Roll, this just adds to it. If you don't like Dungeon Roll, this probably will not change your mind.

I agree with this. I am actually brand spanking new to the game since I bought the expansion along with the base game and other expansions less than a week ago (they're doing a bundle sale!). I played several solo runs using both the official rules and NuMystic's alternate rules, and also played two times with a friend. I just got done playing a couple solo games using Henchmen. It basically adds another strategic layer to the game. I feel like it is balanced enough in terms of treasure as an expenditure and the power of most of the henchmen. It does NOT add to player interaction, so it is best played solo or with NuMystic's rules.

It's also worth noting that the henchmen cards are smaller and made of a thicker material. They look to be about the same size as a Magic or Pokemon card. They feel nice. Plus, every single expansion fits in the treasure box along with the base game. I think there may be room for one more expansion in the future!
