Hello. Watching the current Kickstarter, everything looks fine. Does the game come with dividers for every type of card? Or is it just a divider with "spells" then 20 different spells behind it I have to sort out every time I do set up?

How is setup/cleanup in geneal?

Dividers and setups are similar to Thunderstone and Advance, so there's no issue there. Setup can be a bit longer in Ques, unless you're playing a scenario.

I find the setup and cleanup really easy for this game. One thing I like are the Adventure setups provided in the rule book. They have a predetermined set of cards to use. Then in each following adventure from the same "campaign", some cards stay and others are replaced. It means that it is really easy to play 4 or more games in a row, each one similar, but with slight (and important) changes to the puzzle. It really allows you to see the use of and versatility of different cards when you have an opportunity to use them in conjunction with other cards. Lots of fun!

That sounds great.

I might just ask another question here instead of making a new topic.

What about epic thunderstone? I assume I would want to play that after the campaing but is the $25 addon worth it? My point is that after you play the regular game enough and move on to epic play I guess you will continue playing that? Or do people go back and forth?

Thanks

Some people really enjoy the Epic variant, but I didn't bother with it. If I would like a more random setup, I use the randomizer cards provided to create my own scenario.

It does however, provide you with yet another way to play the game! Combine it with the provided adventures, the randomizer setups, now the Coop - Barricades mode and Epic, you have a ton of replay value with the game.

Just to make sure you know, the $25 add-on is not required to play Epic Thunderstone.

Epic Thunderstone involves taking one of each different card from the types of cards and using them all in the same game. The add-on provides an extra copy of each of the cards in the game with the purpose of making it easier to switch between Epic and "normal" Thunderstone Quest modes. It's just for convenience.

So, if you do reach the point where you no longer want to play "normal" Thunderstone Quest, preferring the Epic Thunderstone variant mode, then you can set it up from just the base game without the add-on.

Yes I was aware of that I understand that the addon saves alot of sorting time but my guess is that I will like the epic variant more.

Awesome, well, I suppose my point was that you do not need to spend the extra $25 if you expect you'll like Epic more... unless you also want to play the normal game interchangeably. I'm sure that $25 is well-worth saving the time of regularly picking and re-sorting one of each card in the game heh

Agreed. In fact, at one time during thunderstone quests development, epic was the default mode. But we discovered that while people enjoy epic mode, it is more difficult to teach new players. This is why we made epic the optional method, and the stacks of cards the primary method.
