This is a great set, I've even recommended this as the starter set for one person looking to buy into Thunderstone for the first time. There are a number of great cards and truly awesome combos in this set. I love most of the new artwork and it provides a decent mix for the base cards. I've enjoyed playing this solo but it's very easy to get locked into a specific strategy with some cards and ignore the majority of villager cards. The game really shines with three players IMO as you need a strategy but also may need to "fight" to get specific cards and keep a flexible strategy at the same time.

Including the Dragon-Humanoid index card for a future promo...cool but cruel! The setting cards are a great addition to further mix things up and break up any future monotony (as if!).

My only minor complaint is that there is no index card for my Harruli. This box is completely full with all the prior sets and promos and weighs about as much as a cinder block. So what are we going to do when the next expansion comes out? I need to carry TWO boxes?!? LOL

This game has what Dominion is missing: theme. It has a story line, the game play is great. I don't like the CCG style 'keep making crap till they stop buying' but the game is consistently becoming more interesting, not less.

Definitely my preferred deck building game. My introduction to the deck building games was Ascension. The next game I tried was Dominion. This game feels like both games in one. I did not like the lack of theme in Dominion. Thunderstone definitely has theme. After playing my first couple of games, I knew this was much more enjoyable than both Ascension and Dominion.

Dragonspire is the best Thunderstone set. For anyone getting into Thunderstone, buy this first. It is both an expansion and a base game, it is much more balanced than the base set, provides much needed strong monsters, 2 Guardians, and introduces the experience tokens, dungeon board, and the settings which add to replayability. I also love that they re-printed all randomizers with a different back. Every Thunderstone player should own this set.

The box and the card dividers are perfect; so much better than the box and dividers in the base game. The XP chips are great, as is the dungeon board.

It's cool to have some variety in the hero leveling, making some heroes deeper and some wider.

The settings are strange. We've played with two so far. A setting to rotate monsters in the dungeon is strange, and makes it difficult to plan ahead. The setting for monsters not generating gold really slows the game down and clogs up my hand. Yuck. We don't play with these anymore.

Favorite Heroes:
1. Stoneguard
2. Veteran
3. Phalanx
4. Flame
5. Gorinth

Favorite Village Cards:
1. Toryn Gauntlet
2. Frost Giant Axe
3. Frost Bolt
4. Guardian Blade
5. Burnt Offering

Favorite Monsters:
1. Giant
2. Hydra•Dragon
3. Bandit•Humanoid

El juego más adictivo de los que poseo actualmente, mejora, para mi gusto, al dominion, esperando comprar ampliaciones porque lleva muuuuchas partidas en poco tiempo.

Makes a game I already love much smoother. The board is very nice, especially when playing with new or inexperienced players. The tokens are even more awesome than I anticipated... I can't count the number of times someone in my group has said "Oh, I don't think I got experience for some of those kills" or "ahhh man, I've already re-shuffled that card, does anyone remember how much experience I should have tkane?". Now, you can easily put the XP tokens on the monster cards as the enter the hall - problem solved - and in a very COOL way. The cards themselves are with great effects, nice artwork... lots of thought went into this stand alone / expansion and it shows. I LOVE IT.

Third expansion for Thunderstone, but has everything needed to play, so it can double as a base set. For new players this is the best place to begin collecting the game because you get lots of extra card types that were not available in the base set.

I love the things that Dragonspire adds: Experience counters, a box that also holds all the cards of the previous expansions, randomizer cards with different backgrounds for all existing cards, a board to place the encounters on, settings that give a dungeon a unique theme and a whole bunch of additional everything.

You probably won't still find this Thunderstone stand alone title anywhere for under $100. It is certainly the best of all the base Thunderstone sets with tons of great monsters, characters and items to equip your heroes. It also contains a very useful dungeon board to stage your monster encounters and a great box design with a much better card racking system than the base game. Grab it if you can still find it for a reasonable price!

I really like the new cool art for the basic cards. I don't like the second set of reference cards for some cards, but I like that it is also a stand alone game. Great addition to game, also Settings cards are great addition...

The best base set to start, cause it contains all the different game features that were out when it hit the streets and adds a couple more. It takes Thunderstone to an upper level, more sweeping and exciting.

Just adds more great options to an already great game. I love the deck-building genre, but adding the dungeon theme really makes it for me. This expansion does just what it should--it makes me want to play the game more often.

Also, the new dungeon board and experience point tokens are a very nice little touch.
