Looks like Runebound Third edition is over 50% off at Amazon right now.

**EDIT** Price dropped a decent bit further, updated title. Surprised it's still in stock & actually dropping.

Is there any point to getting this if you plan to get Gloomhaven shortly?

The man with too many games.....

Yes, it's a completely different type of game than Gloomhaven. Gloomhaven is a brilliant puzzly card-driven campaign dungeon crawler that requires a 100 hour+ commitment to get the most out of, Runebound 3e is a streamlined and intuitive one-shot adventure game with clever and unique combat mechanics that plays in 2 hours and is great solo (especially with Unbreakable Bonds) as well as co-op and competitively. They scratch completely different itches, and I think they're both at the top of their respective genres (puzzly dungeon crawls and adventure games, respectively).

Anybody know if the size of the minis are closer to Descent or 28mm Heroic Scale?

Thanks.

Sad that I decided to not buy any games for a while. This year, it's one or more out for every one in.

Slightly bigger than Descent scale, but slightly smaller than some 28mm Heroic scale lines.

For anyone on the fence, this is a fun game if you're looking to scratch that medieval-fantasy-questing-hero itch. In each scenario, there's a big, bad villain threatening the realm while you and your companions race against time to power-up your heroes by completing quests, fighting monsters, upgrading gear, exploring locations, etc. This will eventually culminate in an epic showdown in which you save the realm or die trying. My group and I have really enjoyed it so far.

Is this relatively easy to pick up and play after you've grasped the rules?

Games don't get a ton of repetition with me due to time restraints, so I tend to like games that you can quickly refresh yourself on rules and play easily.

I think this game is easy to jump back into once you have played it a couple of times. Most all of the mechanics have been streamlined and are really easy to recall once you know them. That's one of the things I like about the game. You can put it on the shelf for six months then pick everything back up pretty quickly when you play it again.

Yep, I'd say so. This is a recurring favorite of ours, but we don't play it more than 2-3 times a year. The co-op expansion is pretty cool.

Re: [AMAZON] Runebound 3rd Edition $28.22 (Prime)
This is a really fun game that I'm always surprised that I don't hear more about. Haven't played anything else that captures that adventuring vibe so well. It's like Talisman, but fun and less abstracted. The only iffy part is that combat is fairly involved. Each time it comes up there's basically a mini game that's almost like a brief game of Magic, one other person gets to control the monster, so not an issue with 2, not a big deal at 3, but with 4 people it makes for a long game.

Slightly bigger than Descent scale, but slightly smaller than some 28mm Heroic scale lines.

Actually I would say it depends on which Descent figures you're talking about. The blister packs that had 4 heroes and 3 monsters had slightly bigger pieces, but the base 2nd edition figures were slightly smaller than Runebound. I am currently using some of my Runebound figures in my copy of Descent 2nd e.

You can play the base game solo - I owned it for a year before the solo expansion came out and only ever played it solo. The expansion makes the solo so much better of course, but it works fine solo without it as well.

I don't want to try to "push" you toward spending money you might not have, or be a "bad influence" in buying more board games - but you could always pick up the base game now for the 28 which is a very good price, and then later down the road pick up the expansion. Just a thought....whistle

That's what I'm fighting against now, damn we're such enablers.

And I just found some sunflower seed oil I want that's an add on item so I need to spend $25 to get it to ship.....

It seems to make much more sense for me comparing it with Mage Knight... Any thought on that?
