The missus and I played the opening quest, First Blood, and it took about 1 hour 15 minutes to play. As I read the rule book I chose to be the Overlord and gave her complete choice over which heroes she wanted to use and how many. She chose 3, Avric, Jain and Widow Tarha. To say that the game was one sided is an understatement It was lot's of fun though.
Please feel free to correct anything wrong in the following explanation with regards to rules.
The way I played the Overseer was to just run my Goblins as fast as I could to the exit, that meant using 2 movement actions per goblin for a total of 10 movement points each. The Ettin 'Mauler' was brought down to meet the heroes in the crossroads and try to put the hurt on. As it turns out this was a big mistake as Avric can stun which meant that at the start of each activation turn for the Ettin all he could do was remove the stun card. So he became chain stunned for the entire game. (We know not to stack a condition on a single character/miniature).
The reanimate ability proved to be very useful, giving the heroes an extra body to attack passing goblins and put the hurt on the Ettin a little. Despite having no defense dice he managed to stay up for the entire game.
Overall this was a fun game, a good game that I feel has not been a waste of money. I can not wait to play it again, and if I can pry the missus away from Skyrim I am sure that a fun campaign is on the way.
