Give me 25 minutes to set up the game and we'll be able to start. Make sure you read through the rule book at least 3 times and if you happen to forget anything, I made you a player aid with all of the important information.

If you're lucky I'll let you see my expansions.

Ok, let me just take an hour to build out the Chart of Appearances.

That's done? Great, now let's take another 30 minutes to build the board, then set up all the site/sound chits.

Now you need to plan everything your character hopes to accomplish by the end of the game, plus everything you're going to do on the first game day.

Finally ready to play? Whoops, you walked into the caves and are now being attacked by 18 goblins (6 Sword, 6 Spear, 6 Axe). Let's just set up all the combat boards, one phase of combat, hit by 18 goblins, dead.

Hirelings, Magic? Let's just dig into this 300 page rulebook...

Still one of my favorite games, but no way I'd bring it out on a first date
