  1. This topic has grown into a very interesting discussion. So many knowledgeable folks sharing their experiences and insights. I'm really enjoying it :)!
  2. Sooooo fast! I ran a game with warsprinter and had my berserkers making a 3 move and a 4 move with 4 unstable runes. Deadly.

    Should you be excited for this game?

    Yeah the set-up for this game is pretty easy. It takes about 5 minutes. The footprint of so small! For someone like me, who plays gloomhaven, which can take an hour to set up before people show up to your house, this game is ideal. You're hanging out, feel like playing a game, suggest this one, bust it out and start playing in no time. There aren't many Dungeon dives you can set up or resume in such a short time.

    Yah good question. In the original Warhammer quest adventure card game you potentially get loot, most certainly upgrade abilities, and sometimes get legendary items unique to your character. These persist along the quests until the final quest where the game would then end. The replayability comes from trying different characters, and playing with different people. The original game was never supported amazingly. They never came out with more quest. My hope for this version is that there will be much more support because FFG owns the rights to the game. There may also be more character customisation, so you may be able to choose different versions of abilities each playthrough. Despite these somewhat limited replayability of the first game, I definitely played it more than 10 times the whole way through, which is about 40 + hours of play.

    I'm So happy to hear that! I thought getting kickstarters to Canada was sometimes hard but I bet Argentina is a nightmare. This game is a great low-medium weight dungeon crawler. Its not too long, introduces progression, and is all cards (without a lot of shuffling). It also has a very small footprint. Unlike Gloomhaven which weights like 12-14lbs this game will be easily transportable haha. Ill do another video when more information becomes available.
  6. Thanks for watching. It is totally a beer and pretzel type of game. Maybe slightly more advanced as you need at least one person to know what optimal plays are. I did a skim this video because I wanted to wait for more info on the game to come out before doing an in depth overview. I didn't want to review Warhammer quest and call it a heroes of terrinoth review as I'm hoping there are some improvements/differences.

    a measure of sucess ?

    Totally fair. Its just my experience. I still pay Runewars about once a month. Its a great game. Just is I'm looking for a casual war game Legion can fill that place.

    RWMG was my first true foray into miniature gaming. I loved it. I still love it, but a bit less. The biggest problem/strength for Runewars imo is the dial system. I don't think I realized how genius and incredibly tactical the dials were until I played SW Legion. I love that Runewars complexity is on the table not in a rulebook, but it is complex. Runewars makes my brain hurt. After a full 200 point battle I'm actually fatigued. There is so much complex planning that goes into a turn especially when you play an experienced person. Deployment as well. There is also, I find, a point where you just get your teeth kicked in for the rest of the game. One person deployed poorly and they pay for it for a long time. The templates as much as the dials are genius/intimidating. SW Legion on the other hand... Its a breath of fresh air. Laughably easy. I can make decisions in seconds. No templates. You just decide in the moment what you want to do. I can play two full games in the time I can play a Runewars game. I don't even feel mentally tired after. I have a hard time convincing anyone to play or try Runewars as I honestly don't think I can recommend it to anyone but the most hardcore tabletop gamers. Just my opinions. I've thought about it a lot lately.

    Are you guilty of these gamer habits?

    Yah It's a little ruthless. Unfortunately, you can't always pick who you play with. I'd rather play a Cheesy game that no game at all.

    That is a classic example with the gunner!! It gets real quiet and awkward at the table when that happens haha!

    Haha yah Runewars is great for the perfect predictions. My main opponent likes to play with my head by telling me what he could do, and what he will do if I react to a multitude of his plans. It's a brain burner.
  13. After playing a lot of Runewars I have noticed some behaviors amongst tabletop gamers. Are you guilty of these? I know I am...
