Fun short game if you play with 3-5. Not a fan of 6-7 player games, not enough strategy.
EDIT: Feels a bit stale now.

Despite so many aliens, games... eventually start feeling the same. Which is ironic, considering the main point of CE is that it should never feel the same. Downtime starts getting too high once you add a sixth player, and is nigh-unbearable with seven.

Still good for a bit of fun once in a while.

More Cosmic. New aliens are always nice, defender reward deck feels a bit overpowered.

Good for about 4-5 hours of fun, if you have that amount of time to spare in the first place. More fun for the heroes than the Overlord, but hopefully you have an experienced group of players who can rotate Overlord duty with you. Quests are frequently imbalanced, some seem to be impossible unless you've played before and know where everything is, others are way too forgiving.

House rules are your friend for this game.

Quests are frequently imbalanced requiring house rule fixes - although that could be said for a lot of other stuff in Descent. Treachery is cool, but some of the other additions (e.g. power potions, some of the new treasures) seem a bit unnecessary. Still a solid addition, should be added into the base game.

So easy to teach (everyone plays Poker, right?), intuitive, light and doesn't take very long unless playing with people who manage to AP on die rolls. Not much strategy here, but for an hour of dice, better than most.

Makes the game from above average to great - no longer just a gateway game but rather a light strategy game that's easy to pick up but even experienced gamers can enjoy strategically. I'd consider this essential.

Theme is hilarious (funny how simply making your objective the opposite from what it usually is works so well) and multiple engines all viable, it would seem.

Currently want to play again, pretty short as well.

Need more plays to confirm, but looks like a fantastic strategy game, lots of depth, together with the bling and production quality you find from FFG.

Edit: feel no desire to play for some reason... it's well-designed but maybe a little imbalanced?
