My fellow boardgamers, never before have I been so hyped for a boardgame since I first heard about Gloomhaven. While I don’t expect ratings going skyhigh like Gloomhaven did, and I don’t want to even give the impression to compare both, I am still so hyped !!
I saw an announcement on Facebook in january and was immediately sold to This game. Still, I waited until yesterday before finaly late pledging, because I wanted to know a little more gameplay things before backing This up.
But now I’ve backed and I cannot wait to start surviving This sci-fi horror dream of a boardgame !!
When did you decide to go for it and are you as pumped as I am to relive your youth nightmares from Alien and The Thing?

firstly, fellow Belgian friend, welcome to THE HYPE TRAIN !!!

choo choo

secondly, to answer your question: I decided to go for it as soon as it was announced (kickstarter draft)... just by reading the draft I had the impression of living the 1st Alien movie in a boardgame.
I set a reminder to be one of the first backer

than I read rules... and I hyped few people around me

result: we're taking the retail intruder pledge (all in *6)... 2 waves shipping, in French...

And I'm already sad I know I'll have to wait when people will receive their first copies... because translated games will take longer to produce

anyway

CHOO CHOOOOOO

I am a huge fan of Gloomhaven. I've also played this on TTS.

They aren't very similar except that they are both semi-coop using the same kind of mechanic (hidden battle goals), which works well in both.

The difference is that in Gloomhaven, it's like "we're gonna work together, but I may do stupid things from time to time that don't always make sense", whereas in Nemesis, it's more "I will cut you (unless I need you to survive)"

Thus far, every play of Nemesis has felt like playing through a movie with an emergent story line. It's very cool! I'm not generally one who is big on theme, but the theme here is so well done and so integral to the mechanics of the game, it just works.

The only downside at all is that I don't think my Gloomhaven group will enjoy it (They are much to cooperative for the nature of this game, in which you really have to be willing to sacrifice others if you want to win).

I pretty eager to play it too for the same reasons mentioned. I was hoping for a bit more subtle homage to those Alien and The Thing themes I get that it's tricky ground to tread. Still an P-3000 anthropomorphic exoskeleton power frame would have been a cool mission drop.

Things are really silent about This game. For such a blast of a Kickstarter campaign (I think top 5 ever for boardgames-higher than Scythe and Gloomhaven) the hype has died.
I wonder what Will happen when This beast releases...
