"Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of the Essential Collection for Runebound! This box of adventure contains six previously released expansions for Runebound, now available in one convenient and specially priced package. Featuring six single deck expansions, consisting of Adventure variants, Challenge cards, Items, and Allies, the Essential Collection is a great way to breathe new life into this beloved game of fantasy adventure."
WOTC made me hate the term Essentials. Now FFG makes me love it!
I already have all but one of these expansions but am tempted to buy this set just to support Runebound so maybe they will make more of the deck variants.
If you have Runebound but none of the expansions this is definitely worth it. It includes my favorite variant "The Cataclysm".
As far as market cards go, familiars and rituals are a nice addition to the market stacks. Rituals in particular allow for some interesting customization and combos if used correctly.
GET THIS SET!
