The play is elegant and sublime. The story is fun, the character progression is interesting and customizable. This is an exceptionally well crafted game.
The 20 lbs box comes with a ton of stuff. Recommend buying an organizer right off the bat.
It brings together the fun of a dungeon crawl adventure and the smoothness of a modern eurogame brilliantly. Play is your standard dungeon crawl with upgrades for your character and town. Game is challenging and entertaining.
There appears to be a misprint or a weird cut with one tile page. There are a lot of boxes that i can't open without spoiling the game. The cardboard is low quality and many of the cardboard items have started to separate from one side.
This game is dnd without the roleplay and cards instead of dice. Any element of chance is pretty much dampened by the additional sets of cards you draw. A few gold, but not enough to even go back to town to get potions.
Game play might be said to redeem these issues. Everyone plays the same class the same way due to how horribly the game is balanced. It’s dull to play.
Small amount of lore in this game is nice but because there's is no rp and the game is mostly combat you never really notice that anyways. There is no real long-range strategizing possible since game play is pseudo-chance. The themes are largely deriv... Read More

The tiles click in place very securely on the board and stay in place after you close it up and carry the pouch around. The tile trays have a cover that can flip down, which is great if you're playing in close quarters or need to pause the game and st... Read More
It's easy to pack up the game and put it away in the middle of the game without ruining your progress. You can fold up the board, zip it up, and resume the game with everything still intact. Holders click into slot on the back of one half of the board... Read More
I wish they made the letter holders a little bigger. If i look for it, i notice the letter thickness is slightly off depending on which letter, but it is barely noticeable.
This set has too many flaws for me to be able to recommend it. Shoddy work. Very annoying and disappointing. By the time we played 4 times they have for the most part become unreadable!
Some letters have so much ink that they look like they are in bold. When the tiles are in the racks (which are themselves very fiddly to use, and unstable), the tile numbers are covered by the bottom of the rack - so it's impossible to see what each l... Read More
