I am soooo on the fence about this one. Walked into my local gamestore today (about 30 minute drive from me) and there it was on the shelf. I debated for about an hour in the store on what to do.

I've been looking at this one for awhile now (never was into Deadlands though), but I love the atmosphere of the Universe. Can't find much of anything online regarding opinions.

Picked it up three times off the shelf...then, I walked out with the Kingsburg expansion and a Talisman Expansion....no Deadlands.

Still, I sit here and wonder if I shouldn't go back and buy it.

Argh.....

Jeremy

Yeah Jeremy, I'm on the fence too. I love the setting but want to hear more about the game. Hopefully we'll get some more reviews. I'd like to read the rules too, have to go see if they are around to download.

If they posted the rules on the web site it would be great.

Same traffic here. The game looks good, but I need to know the rules before I get any game these days. I'm sure they'll pop up eventually...that's one nice thing about Twilight Creations, they seem to be cool about that kinda thing.

Yeah, very odd that no rules are posted. Feels like they are hiding something.

Did a demo at GenCon. Wasn't impressed, but I really love the Deadlands setting, so I'm torn between buying for that reason alone and finding something else with my money.

I am going to try to play it again next weekend at FlatCon, though.

I just gave in and pre-paid for it a month ago. Now I just have to go to the store and pick it up when it arrives next week.
I'm a sucker for Deadlands.

And now I can play it before I buy it. Will we see this at the next BOGS?

I'm with scubadawg1 on this one. Prior to Gen Con, I saw that Twilight Creations was asking you to sign up on a list in order to secure one of the limited number of copies they were bringing to the convention but I held off. As it turns out, they still had copies available for sale so I guess that not many people signed on. I went ahead and demoed the game with the intention of buying when I was finished but in the end, I kept my money. While I don't like to draw too many conclusions from a quick demo, I found the game to be somewhat fiddly. All of the player characters are unique but that means that you spend your time referencing your little player shield to try and figure out what you can do. So, at least for now, I don't have the game.

Very nearly picked this up today, but need to read more reviews before I invest the cash in another game.
