I'm new to these boards, and new to descent. I'm not sure if this is allowed but I couldn't see any threads talking about just how awesome this game is!
This game has everything to satisfy the geek in me;
- Fantasy Setting (grew reading Lord of the Rings)
- Dice Battles (grew up playing Pen & Paper RPGs)
- Playable Cards (grew up playing Magic: The Gathering)
- Miniatures (grew up playing Warhammer Fantasy Battle)
It's a perfect blend of all of these elements that I love - it's like the delicious Rocky Road Ice-cream of boardgames.
I like that there's quite a short set-up time required, you can very quickly go from taking out the game box to starting a quest. And the short quest times mean you never get bored.
And then there's the replayability - so many combinations of Characters/Classes/Quests available!
Colour me one happy Geek!
