Great strategy game for little kids

Reviewed by on

There are not a lot of strategy games for preschool kids, but this one really stands out from those we’ve tried so far. My 3 year old daughter enjoys playing this game, but more importantly, I enjoy playing it with her. The game also comes with very good components. I feel this game is really good value for money.

Worth getting the MALL and the FARM extension packs

Reviewed by on

Both of the available expansion packs -- the FARM and the MALL -- are money well spent. They extend the entire game, since the cards aren't limited to the enclaves. You can use all of the cards in any scenario. Apart from the actual enclave cards themselves, of course.

There are two cards per enclave. All of the other cards can be used to extend the entire game.

I've bought both expansion decks, and they're view fully integrated into my ZOMBIE WORLD game.

Extends ZOMBIE WORLD by adding cards to add to the full pool

Reviewed by on

The cards in this expansion pack aren't only about farming. You can use all of them (except the two cards specifically to do with the actual enclave) regardless of the enclave you're playing. You get more character options, more fate cards, and so on. Really worthwhile having the FARM (and the other extension deck currently available -- the MALL) in your ZOMBIE WORLD game.

Overall happy about the dice.

Reviewed by on

I am overall happy with the purchase. I got some really nice dice, was lucky to find a crystal D20 (which I was hoping for).

I got 2 damaged dice, one is unusable and cracked badly, the other is also cracked, but usable. Luckily both are D6's which are the most abundant in my pack. I would have liked to see more D20's and D4's (I got about 6 of each).

HPHB too easy? Well, step right up!

Reviewed by on

This expansion to Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle raises the base game in difficulty and plays around with the base rules too. Definitely more fun and interesting if you enjoyed the base game (required to play this).

Also definitely more difficult. Depending on the handful of Hogwarts cards from the inceasingly tall pile you get to buy from, apply their suggested "change store cards" rule. Or one the base game inevitably gets as a house rule: where you simply put out double or more cards in the store to avoid bottlenecking on cost 6+ cards...

That said, we have really enjoyed the changes and extras in this game. A must buy if you love the theme and are finding Year 7 of the base game less difficult.

A fun family game and really good intro game

Reviewed by on

The game and theme works really well together and one of the best parts is that you are slowly introduced to rules and mechanics one "Year" at a time. This is invaluable for players not used to the tons of rules that come with more advanced (and fun) board games and I recommend this game for that feature alone.

This game is a favourite in the family and the kids picked it up easily and like replaying it. It sees regular play time and provides a fun time to laugh and groan together!

Second mission in the Dunwich cycle and fun to play, if a bit more fiddly with encounter card effects. We had a great time even making the odd mistake.

Good intro to Arkham Horror the Card Game

Reviewed by on

A great card game for novice or better players. For complete beginners and casual players, it will be a rough ride and playing a game like Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle first several times is an easier first game with similar concepts. Arkham has a lot of steps and rules from the beginning and will easily overwhelm beginners and/or result in a first intro mission 2 hours long with plenty of rule reading and waiting.

Once you get the hang of it, this game shines. Keep in mind, this core set has basic cards and not enough cards for 3 or 4 players. I recommend buying this Core set and as much of a single campaign (cycle) as possible, which should supplement enough useful player cards to avoid needing to buy 2 Core set while also giving you more missions at the same time.

The Core set missions are good and scratch the surface of what is possible in this game. If undecided on the game and its purchasing model and investing in further packs, buy the Core set only and play it a few times. That said: the expansion cycles are where you really play this game to its potential.

Demonstrates what this game is capable of

Reviewed by on

This cycle expansion should be bought along with the Core set. More player cards and more diverse mission types. This pack contains the first 2 campaign missions only and is followed by the separate 6 mythos packs.

The Dunwich cycle as a whole provides a variety of different mission types and objectives. It is the next step up after the Core set's introductory campaigns.

Clever, quirky and fun!

Reviewed by on

Easy-to-learn card drafting game that is beautifully illustrated and well thought-out. Takes me back to my days playing World of Warcraft, equipping items and fighting bosses - this time from a very different perspective. The cards are witty, good quality, and the game easy enough to learn that you'll soon be flying through the different phases of play as you equip your heroes with items and send them off to battle. Plenty of replayability.

Simple and fun for newbies

Reviewed by on

Very simple game of drafting cards with the aim of having the highest number at the end, or discarding them and triggering effect against the people you're playing with - forcing them to show you their card, or to discard one of high value. Takes a round or two to understand all the cards, and best played with 4 or more people. Funny, simple, and beautifully made. Worth a buy.

So pretty

Reviewed by on

Great game! Different from anything I've played before. The tiles click and clatter together as you scratch through the game bag, filling up the factory with each new round. It's simple, delightfully tactile and fun to play. Great for two people; and a completely different feel to it with three or four. Love it.

Amazing co-op game and the app makes it a better experience

Reviewed by on

Don't be put off that this game requires an app, I know that using an app goes against the grain of board games but here Fantasy Flight got it 100% right.

The app streamlines the whole setup, rounds, damage and storyline. This game also includes physical expansions and digital add-ons for each expansion (and base game). I went from disliking apps for board games to wondering why more of them don't have it.

The figures in the box are good quality and if you enjoy miniature painting, these are not too bad, and if you don't paint, well here is your chance to dive into the hobby, check Army Painter range under the Hobbies & Toys.

Currently playing with my kids and this is going onto my self with big-box favourite games like Scyth, Gloomhaven and Eldritch Horror.

Bought it purely for the miniatures, not the actual game. (honestly didn't realize it came with the HeroClix game)..
Happy with my lil miniatures! Just a warning for those buying it, be careful when removing it from the package, it doesn't just pop out. I accidentally broke my one lil figurine but managed to glue it back on, just wanted to write a lil review saying it's well worth it quality-wise just take it out with caution :)

Loved it!

Reviewed by on

Bought this as a Xmas add-on for my lil one (and myself and my partner as we all duel each other and love the Yu-Gi-Oh series.. I honestly expected something smaller but when the package arrived I was pleasantly surprised and excited! Great quality cards, packaged securely (none of the cards were damaged). The only downfall is that the packs are identical so we all have the same cards and can't swap out between each other etc.

Highly recommended for any fans! Great prize too!

Steep learning curve, but well worth the effort

Reviewed by on

This game is heavy! There are a lot of components to it. From the real-estate tiles, to the goals, to the money. There is a lot. Adding to that, it's also heavy to learn. The rules are simple enough - but only once you've chewed through them once or twice. Trust me, it's worth the effort. This is a fantastic engine builder, with so much content that your boroughs (suburbs) will be different every time you play.

The magnet locks also keeps the deck box together tightly.
