I played a demo of this with my brother and a couple friends at Gencon when it just came out, and I can tell you that all of us would 100% agree with what you are thinking. The game has literally zero strategy of any sort...you randomly pick out dice, randomly roll them, and then buy the biggest thing you can with what you rolled. There is zero thought process. Then for your monster to attack you have to randomly roll its attack side, and the combat between monsters again involves zero thought. Is attack > defense? Dead.
None of this would have bothered me if it wasn't advertised with huge posters everywhere saying how it's some heavy strategy game. Taking a shower involves more strategy than this game.
