    I just received my box down here in New Zealand, and I have to say I’m incredibly impressed. The huge amount of effort and dedication that has gone into this is obvious. I was also impressed and pleased by the free extras that had been added and the personal message in letter form thanking me as a backer and talking about the subject matter.

    My only tiny criticisms are that the text in the book of scripts is a bit too close to the inner margin, and the cardboard used for the cards is a bit slightly lower quality than I would have preferred (though I’ll be sleeving my cards).

    Otherwise, a very impressive job and it’s been quite some time since I’ve been so excited about getting a game to the table.

    Of course I’ve filmed an unboxing that will be here on the site soon.

    I’m now going to have another look at Lords of Hellas (cleverly, they threw in a promo miniature), which I’d previously decided I wasn’t going to back … 🙂

    Did you have a chance to play some games of this? How is the heavy theme coming across…does it work to have “fun” with the game. I am looking at the game with interest…but I am worried that the theme and fun do not go well together.

    Yes, I’ve played it about 5 times. It’s not fun, it’s as grim as hell. But I still enjoy playing it. Put aside all ideas of fun and just get into the theme. I think it’s a pretty amazing game, but it’s definitely not smething you bring down from the shelf for a laugh!

    Ah…my choice of words was not really good. I did not mean “fun” in “having a laugh”. I meant is the game play good and can you enjoy playing it despite the grimm theme. Should have thought more about wording – sorry. But that is good to here…now I am more confident to get my guys playing this game. Thanks!

    It’s really a matter of personal taste this one. Give it a go and see what you think.
