Oddly I feel like they’ve been not so great? Not terrible and certainly fun but I feel like they’re missing something. Probably just me.

However I think these final 2 will be stellar and both Matt and Jeremy picked one of them as their current favorite scenario on the AMA. Very excited.

Well it might also be that this is my favorite mythos theme.  Missing something with respect to the story or the mechanics?  The only scenario I felt was a bit strange was Beyond the Gates of Sleep if you stay on the path.  Though it does pretty accurately recount the beginning of Dreamquest so kudos to the designers for correctly understanding the ways you can enter the Dreamland.

Yeah it definitely represents Dream Quest well. I can’t tell if it is mechanically or maybe it just feels like the pressure is off. I didn’t think I really liked the unkillable ever-present returning monsters like harbinger and specter, but maybe that’s what it is? Anyway I’m ready for some ancient one encounters haha.

Could it be because there are two groups you are swinging back and forth between, making it 2 months between playing  your wakers and dreamers? I wonder if that’s making the story line of and pressure of the quest feel less immediate.

Could be part of it but I don’t think that’s entirely it either. Maybe when we replay I’ll be able to tell once the whole cycle is out. And all honesty, I know y’all love some Patrice but maybe it’s partly her too. I’ve said it in other threads but she starts to feel very samey to me. But I’m using Norman in the waking world. Only time will tell.

I have decided not to play Dream-Eaters at all until every pack is out.

And this conversation is really making me reconsider.

Same.  Aaaaand not same.

I'll play it in a month and a half.  That's why I've been mostly absent from the message board.  (Also, I've been a little obsessed with the Marvel LCG, and I'm a DC guy!)

Now that Where the Gods Dwell is out you could play the complete The Dream-Quest campaign.

It's coming out in two weeks' time.

Time travel is more of a Forgotten Age thing than a Dream-Eaters thing.

You have been missed, our fine feathered friend!

Oh yeah.  I saw this and did nothing.  Thanks, @Mimi61!

We're checking on you @Duciris!  You're acting quite unlike yourself! Making sure you're okay in these times of social separation.

It is really good, yeah.  I'm a DC guy, but I can't put it down.

What's your favorite hero and villain so far?

It’s a shame because I love Marvel but I can’t collect 2 lcgs. It would be my undoing.

I picked up only the Core Set and I've been really enjoying it... yet at the same time I've not yet felt any compulsion to buy any of the individual packs that they've released. I think it is much, much easier to dip in to and out of than Arkham Horror, buying only what interests you. At least that's been my experience so far. If they start releasing X-Men expansions I may end up very poor, very quickly...

X-men is the only Marvel I’m interested in if I’m honest. Well maybe I’ll have room by then...

I think it's easier to pick up and be selective about too.

What's your favorite hero and villain so far?

I've been impressed with each hero released so far (Captain America, Ms. Marvel, & Thor) in different ways.

The villain release, of which there have been 2 (Green Goblin & the Wrecking Crew) and will be no more until the big box in July, have been very dissimilar from one another.

Thor, loaded for bear (or minions) against Ultron is very, very fun.  I really like the 2 different scenarios in Green Goblin.  They are very different and are more difficult than the core set villains, and his mix-'n'-match sets (the Encounter Decks) are all difficult, which I like.  Plus, he has 2 scenarios over the 1 in Wrecking Crew, so I like him more.

I'm torn about my favorite hero.  I really like Cap (America, although Marvel is better than I expected too), he is just solid and the most reliable Stunner (Exhauster in AH parlance).  She-Hulk has a fun push-yourself-low-on-hit-points-to-thrive feeling.  I really like Spider-Man & his evasiveness.

Maybe Thor, though.  If the villain has a lot of minions, he is singularly exceptional.  His starting hand size is 1 card smaller than everyone else's (you draw up to max at the start of the Villain Phase), but he has a card that puts him on par with everyone else.  In addition, once per phase (Villain & Hero) if he's in Hero form when he engages a Minion (Enemy in AH), he draws 2 cards.  Oh, the exploits.  Ms. Marvel is also great at removing Threat (AH Doom) or at attacking, whichever she needs.  I feel she is the most versatile at both of those functions.  Iron-Man has almost double the amount of cards in play as any other Identity (Investigator), he's weak and helpless early game, but unstoppable late game.  I don't like how long his turns take, though.  Black Panther is simpler, but weirder & wealthier than Iron-Man.  He'll eventually put 4 cards in play that do nothing, but cost 2 to play.  Then, he'll play 1 of his 5 "For Wakanda Event" cards which activate those 4 (Black Panther Upgrade (Asset)) cards.  Whichever card you activate last roughly gets its effect doubled.  Without exhausting those 4 upgrades.  Lately, I've been enjoying Thor, but he is useless on managing Threat, so maybe Cap (America)?

I've kept the 4 class decks universal (not perfect for any 1 hero) so I can mix any class with any hero - makes for very easy pick-up-and-play.

I'm a Doc Strange and Black Panther fan since decades before the MCU gave them currency. But from what I've seen of it, I just don't think that the gameplay is for me. FFG has me on the hook for Arkham, and they'll have to be satisfied with that.
