I have to say that, having played two of the scenarios with friends today, that we totally enjoyed the game and
all are ready to play some other scenarios, and are looking forward to any expansions. We did have some minor
questions(on the charts, mostly), but all in all, the rule book was easy to follow. For value for money, the miniatures are 1/72nd scale (my
friends and I think) Italieri miniatures, and you get about 30-50 dollars (our calculations, I guess that depends on the value of the Euro)
worth of miniatures, besides the other game components. All the game components were of high quality, and the storage tray make it easy to sort and store the
The only component we were a little worried about were the boards, as they are large, and if you live in a hot, high humidity area you might (we think)
see some board warping. I don't know if Fantasy Flight can do anything about that, but best, if you buy the game, to not store the game in the trunk of your
car (in case you need to hide it from the girlfriend or wife lol).
I hope this helps you with your worries.
