Great stuff, really glad to hear it. I have to wait until they ship everything, unfortunately! I backed their new one, Tainted Grail, too.December 26, 2018 at 9:29 am #18803
That is good to hear…my lokal version will take a few months longer…but to know they hit it again is good news indeed.
@UH I backed the new one too…looks really good…then canceled…I REALLY want to tone down my gaming budged with so many untouched stuff waiting here already 🙂December 26, 2018 at 9:33 am #18804
I know, the unpainted minis backlog is getting ridiculous …December 27, 2018 at 10:11 pm #18805
Yeah, I decided to back Tainted Grail as well. I was a little worried about the replayability, seeing as it has a strong choose-your=own-adventure element, but after doing a bit more research I don’t think you’ll be running out of things to do in the game anytime soon. Plus, the artwork and the miniatures look great and I’m quite taken with how the whole system works.December 29, 2018 at 5:57 pm #18807
Yes. Great game. Very cinematic. Both solo games I played, played out very differently.
I like the fact that the story emerges from the gameplay and isn’t reliant on teams of text in cards or a book (although there’s nothing wrong with that either) 🙂December 30, 2018 at 4:26 am #18808
Exactly. For example, I played a game with my son today, where his objective was to destroy the nest. I guess the Queen got wind of that, because he had to make a noise-roll and the random encounter he drew was big-mama-Intruder, which he subsequently blew away with his Assault-Rifle (Ripley, eat your heart out).December 30, 2018 at 7:10 am #18809
Ha. Same thing happened to my Scout. She had to get an egg back to Earth … but Big Mama came roaring after her. The Scout’s piddly gun couldn’t hurt her, but the Mechanic’s one did! After 2 rounds of combat, Big Mama ran off to lick her wounds while the 2 struggled to repair the Escape Pod hatches and Escape Pod room malfunction. To cap things off… the scout got infected with a Larva that she had to get rid of before escaping. So while the Mechanic frantically repaired, she searched for stuff to use … and was finally able to craft an antidote. Just in time!
BTW… to take a page from our esteemed leader’s book… a game play aid (but not a rules summary) is now available on BGG for your gaming pleasure 🙂December 30, 2018 at 10:35 pm #18810
This is really sounding like a great game, I’m looking forward to it. I’m with you guys, I really enjoy a game which forms stories through to the mechanics, not with fluff text.
