I just read through the (WIP) Rulebook on the KS and here are my thoughts:

1.) On page 8-9, "Chapter" is misspelled in the top header.

2.) For movement on page 12, the language is inconsistent. it says "When a player uses a card to move..." I think it should say "When a player discards a card to move..." It seems like to perform any action besides an attack, a card is discarded from your hand.

3.) I really love what I read on the mechanics. I love how your deck starts at 12 cards and remains at 12 cards as you progress. I love how the 3 cards you have in your hand double as action tokens. Not only is a hand of 3 cards super easy to manage (unlike Gloomhaven's 9-12 card opening hands), knowing that each card can be discarded to perform several other functions is very cool.

4.) More thoughts later....

I was hesitant to back this one actually, until I looked at the rulebook. Not because I needed so much to see gameplay, but to see if it would be an easy enough game with easy to understand ruleset and examples etc.... I grabbed an early bird right after. Was a moderate fan of the game, not huge, but enjoyed it and dont mind giving this one a try.

Same here. Huge fan of Dark/Demon Souls. Only a moderate fan of Bloodborne.

But the rules are simple and the gameplay looks like a Gloomhaven lite. It’s more of a euro than the Dark Souls Board Game and so I’m all in.

You should post your thoughts in my feedback thread. I'm hoping if we get enough thoughts together it'll be worth CMON taking a look and seeing a lot of thoughts in one place.

That's exactly what I'm concerned. My group just purchased Gloomhaven and we're about to start a campaign. We WILL NOT end it before Bloodborne is distributed, and even after that, I'm afraid people won't enjoy it so much after several hours of Gloomhaven play.

I backed the game, but I'm considering cancelling my pledge, specially when it will cost a fortune to have it shipped to Brazil .

It looks like it’s going to play very well solo and so you don’t need a group.
