What a beautiful game! The box is great, very sturdy and comes with a decent plastic insert sufficient to hold all cards + dice and tokens (I think everyone has seen how awesome the art on the cards are). I'm particularly fond of the 'Initiation Campaign' that is included with 9 scenarios set to teach the mechanics in a very flavorful way.

I was hoping to get this on the table (and provide a better review), but upon sorting out the cards, I came to realize that about half of the Hades cards were in French. Hopefully I can get a hold of Iello and get that sorted out.

Happy you enjoy the game.

Sincerely sorry about the cards in French. The factory rushed to have a few samples available for GenCon. Be insured you will get your English cards.

Just to confirm, there are no miniatures in the box, correct?

For some reason BGG lists miniatures as one of the categories for this game, but I didn't see anything in a skimming of the rules or the topics here indicating that any are provided or used.

No miniatures. The units are represented on the board as tokens and their stats/abilities/health are represented with card stacks.

It does do a good job of emulating a miniatures game, in a similar fashion to Summoner Wars.

I checked mine - they seem to all be in English.

Of course, I did just a quick glance-through.

Which cards are in French?

We just discovered the issue with some of the games having french cards in the box.
We will replace the cards, email me your mailing address at stephan@iellogames.com
