I’d estimate we’re about halfway through this box and it’s already delivered us 4 playthroughs. The new content trickles in slowly but adds interesting new mechanics that fit in well with the game and doesn’t throw off any balance. Looking forward to continuing to work through this and finishing the “makeover” of one of our favorite games!
Not for beginners. The base game already has a lot to keep track of. While there are more overlapping rules than new rules in this set, this definitely adds a lot more complex cards. They're easy enough to pull out. The good is that there are a lot of cards, more dice, and more types of dice. The campaign is the highlight, and worth playing, so resist throwing everything in. The included card listing is appreciated. I have cards from the original run, so the backs are slightly off in color - they can be sent in for replacements, but, honestly, not necessary. My biggest concern was sleeves. I sleeve everything. Thankfully, a company called Sleeve Kings offers some that fit perfectly! Finally, related to the seemingly odd size of the cards, they actually fit sideways into standard deck boxes: bonus! If you have the base game, get this one.
