Just want to say “thanks” to the designer of this game - Eric Reuss. After playing two games with my wify and looking through all the options in terms of spirits, powers, scenarios and adversaries, I have to say that the guy is a genius. I’ve yet to see a game so engaging/thematic/strategic where each session feels like completely different game and experience. This is definitely the best game of the year. Looking forward to expansions. Can’t wait.
Thanks again!

Agreed 100%. I'm now at my 8th game, and we tried all the different spirits so far just to see how they play. I'm having a blast. Thematically speaking, just seeing a spirit like the Ocean one, where placement of the presence goes like the tide.. it's great.

Game of the year for me also. When you keep thinking about your next game, and you have dreams where you're playing the game, you know it's a good one

Well deserved praise. One of my favorites as well. I love how much theme comes through from all of the names of the cards

Agreed in that this has quickly become my favorite non-legacy game, not just of the year, but of all time.

I concur. The best game I've played this year. got my girlfriend interested in this too. I've been playing this mostly solo before I met her. it's my #1 in the top 20 solo games of the year.

100% agree Eric is a genius! Also, just throwing this out there, but if you decide to come out with an upgrade pack with premium presence tokens, full art cards (keep the same pictures, but cover the entire card), and any other upgraded bits, then you sir have my wallet.

I have purchased around 20+ new boards games this year and without doubt some of those games have been awesome ...but nothing has excited and enthralled me as much as this amazing game ...

Secondly, and almost just as important has been the designers outstanding support for what is clearly beyond just a pet project for him ...

I purchased the 2nd printing having missed the KS but I will certainly jump on any expansions or future designs by Eric ...in y mind the guy is up there with the best !

All round a first class exemplar of gaming goodness from production, play and support ...MARVELLOUS!

Agreed!

I got the base game, and after playing it a couple of times I bought the expansion no questions asked! Now I wish I also had the promo spirits and keep checking when they will be back in stock!

We want more expansions!!
