Played tonight the 2nd sidequest (Soul to save) from Kindred campaign. Three heroes, Leoric (Hexer), Durik (Beastmaster) and Avric (Disciple). I won without feeling it is getting out of hand. Last week I lost the intro mission and the first sidequest (don't remember which was) and managed to win the 1st quest, saved the monk last moment. I love playing with Rtl, great experience. I can't wait to reach Act II and gear up. With a couple expansions you have enough variety to keep the game fresh. I have also printed the cards for RAMV and I plan to try it after I finish Kindred campaign. I didn't vote this year for top 100 (haven't played enough solo to feel sure for my choices) but if did this game would be hands down my number 1.

Yesterday I received a package that had an awesome box of goodness from my Secret Santa. It was another set of adventures with random setup cards included. I will have to get it out with the family this weekend. I will include pictures soon.

Thank You Santa

I finally got around to uploading the image I promised.

I thought this would be something Chad might like. He is a big D&D player and he loves dungeon crawls. We played a two-player game for the intro scenario. Neither of us were enamored with the game, but we decided to try another scenario later.

Chad really wanted to like Descent, so we decided to try a few more advanced scenarios.

No dice. We still thought the system was clunky and just not very fun.

This is a great campaign-based game. In my limited experience the quests seem pretty well balanced as long as the heroes play very efficiently - there is definitely an edge in favor of the overlord. I believe this game rests on the shoulders of the overlord for this reason. As the overlord I play with the hope that the heroes win, but I do my best to make sure it comes down to the last turn.

Some overlords will probably play very competitively and I believe it's possible for the overlord to demoralize the heroes too much. The fun of this game rests in the overlord's ability to balance the game towards fun.

Recently I've found that the game seems so overwhelmingly in favor of the overlord (me) and I simply can't do anything to give the heroes a chance. We are still enjoying the game, but I think the campaign mode of this game may have a problem with a "run away leader" problem for the overlord. I won act I and moving into act II seems impossible for the heroes right now.

I literally have half of my monsters just running in circles and still destroy the heroes. The heroes playing the campaign with me are made up with several casual gamers so I don't expect them to min-max their heroes. Because of this I feel obligated, as the overlord, to adjust the difficulty to account for this. At this point, however, I almost can't lose unless I just have my monsters open all the doors and just run into the corner.

Great find today for $2.99 at Sunray Valu Thrift. Unfortunantly the majority of class cards and 2 shop cards missing, but otherwise everything else accounted for.

Very good condition on this one as well. Played only a few times.

This is the first edition OF THE SECOND EDITION, so it has the original campaign for 2nd edition. You can buy a hard-cover copy of the new campaign if you'd like, which is the one included in newer copies of the game. To me this would be a bonus because you can purchase (somewhere else) the newer campaign for another roughly $20 to get even more game out of this.

This includes the small-box expansions Lair of the Wyrm and The Trollfens. It also includes the Conversion Kit.

Also included are two of the co-op adventures: Nature's Ire and Forgotten Souls.

Lastly it includes a number of 1st edition minis to use with the Conversion Kit. I believe this is the full list:
Andira Runehand
Runewitch Astarra
Bogran the shadow
Mad carthos
Ispher
Battlemage Jaes
Grey Ker
Landredc the wise
Lyssa of the fast
Mordrog
One Fist
Spiritspeaker Mok
Red Scorpion
Ronan of the wild
Silhoutte
Steelhorns
Trenloe the Strong
Sir Valadir
Varikas the dead
Vyrah the falconer


Soft Reserve: $80
BIN: $120

38 days before Christmas my Santa gave to me:
1 Rulebook
2 Quest guides
7 plastic stands
8 hero sheets
8 DETAILED HEROS!
9 coloured dice
31 AWESOME MONSTERS!
84 cards to play
152 more cards to play
AND HUGE amount of tokens to punch out!



This year my collection has been extended to a direction unknown to me, but what an exciting direction it is! Boardgame version of DnD! With a lot of expandable opportunities, it seems that for some time now my direction in buying games has been decided!

Already the rules are clear and first game has been played and a new one is planned. Got to go to form my dark OVERLORD plans devil.
