Point of my review: If you want to add a little something extra to your game, The Inn is not a waste of your time.


What you get:

Well you have to download the expansion, print it, and cut the 9 cards out. Quality is up to you.

I played with the Inn, and I like that it gives each gang a little different edge to use. A couple items break on a roll of a six, so it is a bit of a gamble to buy the item. Other items you have a nice advantage at different times ( only one of your gang can have a particular item.)

Furthermore, as this happened in our group, you have to pay the inn for the use of each item at the end of the game, and if your a point ahead of someone, having two items, and they only have one, your going to lose. So if your going to invest in items you have to be sure you can pull ahead.


As for strategy, make sure if your banking on trapping a player in the corner and beating them to bits, stealing their treasure, that they don't have an item that allows them to leave the gates or gives them extra die. Basically, don't forget about other player's items.

Overall

This is a nice little addition for those that want a little more skulldiggery to the game. And its free to print off so you shouldn't complain anyway. There really isn't too much more to be said about this tiny expansion, I just wanted to share with people wondering if they should spend time, trying this in a game. My answer: Yes.

What did you paste them onto so the cards don't wear out, also did you laminate the cards, if you pasted them onto something?

Mario, I don't know what the OP did, but I like to print out cards on photo paper, cut them out and sleeve them.

"The Inn" is a very nice expansion. Characters have the same stats and differ only in their skills. The equipment cards makes the characters more individuel. All items cost 2 ducats, but differ in strength and benefit. Compare the mighty "Blunderbuss" whose bearer automatically wins a fight on a roll of 5 or 6 before the regular fight with a "Shield" whose bearer wins a fight on a tie.

I am modifying some equipment cards and working on new cards.

Here is one of them. You have to know, that the Alchemists of Dirz (an evil faction in the world of Confrontation/Cadwallon) are working with mutagen (some kind of drugs, whose effects are not predictable).

Mutagen
The Mutagen can be used twice per game. Put a token on the card after the first use.
Roll one die before moving, attacking or defending.

Movement
1: the character cannot move this turn.
2: he gets no bonus.
3-4: he adds +1 to his speed.
5: he adds +2 to his speed.
6: he adds +2 to his speed and may move through a space occupied by another character.

Attacking or defending
1: the character automatically looses the fight.
2: he gets no bonus.
3-4: he adds +1 to his highest combat die.
5: he adds +2 to his highest combat die.
6: he adds +2 to his highest combat die and wins ties.
Debt: 1 ducat

Re: Is it worth it to add the Inn? (Sure!) ( Short and Sweet, since the expansion only adds 9 cards)
Hello Peter,

I love your Mutagen card.
