I am having an absolute blast playing this solitaire and learning the missions. I have now played it a handful of times solo and a couple times with another player and it continues to improve with each play. I foresee this being in my collection for a long, long time and one of those I am already working on improving with nice wooden bits.

Definitely a game that improves with plays. Now with about 8-10 plays under my belt, I'm starting to get a feel for the strategy. Games are quick and tense. Strategies are very dynamic. A classic card game.

Great beer and pretzel dungeon crawl for two players! Needs a big table. Atmosphere of the game is great -- tension on the human side is palpable. Easy and quick with just the right amount of randomness and strategy.

Finally got around to playing this. I don't feel like I can rate it yet after one play but I can't wait to play again. I feel it'll definitely end up in the 8-9 region: it's a game that takes a few times through to figure out how the interaction works but feels like it will move quite smoothly and interesting after that.

Nice mix of game mechanics and style/theme. Quick game play with strategical thought. Very high in fun factor!

I have yet to play this with a group that didn't enjoy it. Along with Claustrophobia, this is the most enjoyed game in my collection.

Yup. This game is good.

Easily the most stressful game ever. Opponent definitely wants to play some more. It took all of 30 minutes to learn and the remaining hours to figure out.

It's definitely a game you have to play many times before you know what to do.

I've only played the solo variant of the game so far. A beautiful game crying out for more. I cannot wait for he expansion although the game is plenty great now. It's the Arkham Horror of pirate games minus the confusing rules and fiddliness

I plan on making my Birthday day of gaming around this game! I may see about doing a Pirates Day for this game, too. This will probably be my first blinded out game since I will get around to painting the ships quickly!

The expansion perfectly fits the Romulans and adds a great deal of variety to the game. Only the lack of variety of ship models and imperfect application of espionage to the other factions lowers the score over the base game ever-so-slightly.

Simple and clean rules, plays quickly, very thematic. Lots of options and a perfect framework for extra options.

The only problem is I am terrible at empire-building and 4X style games! TERRIBLE! If I make it past the second DM in solitaire I am amazed.

A great game that's a lot of fun in short bursts. I'm rating it a 9 right now not because it is one of the best games but because it accomplishes what it sets out to do nearly perfectly.

Most intense pull-your-hair-out game I've ever played. My opponent and myself were both nervous wrecks during play. One of the biggest hits so far. I think this will be an oft-played game. The fact it plays in around 30 minutes doesn't hurt, either! Many games!

I played a couple 3p games with family members over Christmas and we had fun. It works quite well with three. The rules are so easy to teach and we were all noticing strategy as we played.

Nothing deep and brain burning but just enough to make things fun with a glass of wine after dinner. I'm glad I have this one.

This is definitely a nicely cleaned-up Talisman. My main issue is that I am not sure how much better it is and it also lacks some of the wackiness that makes Talisman fun. Hopefully, the new expansion may add some of that in. Otherwise, I'd like them to use this ruleset on a new version of Talisman.

This game is fun so far. It sits somewhere between Arkham and Eldritch on the rule overload scale, but closer to Arkham.

I absolutely love the theme and how it comes through. I just feel sometimes it has too much overhead. I look forward to more plays, either way, as it will most likely be played instead of Arkham when I feel like this type of game.

Great game for both fans and not alike. Great mix of co-op with mind-game tactics that really make the game full of paranoia.

This is getting hard to get playtime in due to the fiddliness of it and the length of time.

Not that great with only two players but not terrible just a tad too light.

With more players though the game begins to shine. It really becomes a neat game of trying to figure out which race combination to use and for how many turns (sometimes just a single one)!

Finally got an honest-to-goodness 2p game in, one investigator each and we won. A very thematic game that is a bit weighed down in its fiddliness. The story it told makes up for the cold mechanics, however. I look forward to more plays of this game.

This game has proved to be more headache-inducing than any other. Some day I will learn this.

Finally! It's not too bad but it is difficult to play well. Very cool game and I hope to get some multiplayer games of it in soon.

Game play is more in the 8-9 rating range but the components and design of the game drag it down.

A nice and solid game. Plays very quickly with two players. There seems to be a lot of hidden depth in the game. We will definitely be playing it more but probably not all the time. Somewhat calm game, in a nice way.

A decently fun game if a bit random and light. I find it works best with only one player as the zombie and one or two as the heroes. There's not enough to do for more than one zombie player and so it becomes one person making decisions and the other going along with it.

Players definitely need to be able to have fun with bad and crazy dice rolls.

The theme is great and a good variety of scenarios which truly change the game. It does feel like zombies!

P.S. The dice hate me!

This improves the base game a lot. The new board is much more interesting and so are the cities. The monsters I've run into have better powers which play off the mechanics a bit more. Most importantly, the weather and frost mechanic is fantastic.

On the downside, it adds too many tokens. I don't think the legends are worth all the extra tokens and while the princess is neat, again, the clues are a pain.

If I play again, I'll try it without the rumors and see if that helps.

I've only played this once. My rating may go up to an 8. It's a very solid game, easy to learn with a nice mix of strategy. A great use of dice which creates some unexpected results but I never felt owned by them.

This is the definition of an okay game. All the mechanics are solid enough and the game plays fine but I never feel any excitement nor care about the characters. I feel part of it is in the way the text is written, the board setup is uninteresting, and the combat system is designed for interesting choices yet I feel misses the mark.

All in all, not terrible but I doubt I'll play it much. It might be much better as a two-player game than solo since you have competition going.

This is a strange one. I think the game, as a game, is purely OK. The campaign play, however, takes it up a notch or two and turns it into a fun filler to play quickly and slowly watch my character grow.

I am saddened by the fact that future story arcs seem to be as two-dimensional as the base game without learning from other games. Too bad, as worth LOTR LCG-style adventures, this game could have been amazing.

Light game. I like the concept and the theme a lot. Easy to play. A solid 5: I can't see saying no to this game but I also don't see going out of my way to play it over others, either.

Only played with it once so far.
Pro: great new minis and more card and event variety
Con: We found the new ending very convoluted and unneeded. We also didn't really use the Pegasus ship.

We'll probably play future games with a mixture of mostly Pegasus but with the original game ending.

A solid-enough cooperative game doomed by terrible layout and design. A game like this, to me, relies on the theme and setting. I love Larry Elmore's art work but here it is ruined by garish overlay colors, hard-to-read font choices and unhelpful layout. I feel like there's not enough adventuring that can be done and the world and setting gets lost immediately. I don't know if I'll be playing again; downgrading to a 5.

Not the worst game ever and it is playable and quick but the bad part is just a lost opportunity. Some more interesting character traits and more exciting events from the TV show could have made it a great Talisman experience beer & pretzel game for the fans. Instead, it's a very mediocre game that's probably only worth playing in a group of four people after a few drinks and fans of the show that don't want to play LNoE.
