Arcadia Quest is an adventure board game that combines PvE and PvP gameplay, pitting players against not only monsters populating the board, but also the Heroes controlled by other players. Monsters react to the players’ actions, so no one player is stuck with the role of 'game master' because everybody gets to play as Heroes!
Players will form their Guilds from the different Heroes on offer and guide them through an Arcadia Quest campaign made up of multiple, different scenarios. Players can choose the path their campaign takes, ensuring no two campaigns are ever the same. As players’ Heroes defeat enemies and complete quests, they get new weapons, loot and abilities that gradually make them more powerful! Fight alongside your friends to defeat monsters, turn the sword on your friends to get the loot, and become the Guild to take down Lord Fang, saving Arcadia City!

In Arcadia Quest, players lead guilds of intrepid heroes on an epic campaign to dethrone the vampire lord and reclaim the mighty Arcadia for their own. But only one guild may lead in the end, so players must battle against each other as well as against the monstrous occupying forces. Arcadia Quest is a campaign-based game for 2 to 4 players, where each player controls a guild of three unique heroes, facing off against the other players and the various monsters controlled by the game. Players need to accomplish a series of quests in order to win each scenario and choose where to go next in the campaign. Players are able to choose the path their campaign takes, navigating through six out of eleven available scenarios, so each time the campaign is played it can have a different configuration of scenarios. As the campaign progresses, the heroes are able to acquire new weapons, equipment and abilities that give them powerful options to tackle the obstacles ahead. Furthermore, by fulfilling specific quests in a scenario, players unlock exclusive features in subsequent scenarios.

The game set up takes a while and when your learning of the full campaign can fake 8 hours plus but there are save states to continue another time. Totally worth it!
But! Then it comes time to play the game.
Now, I'm a product of old school games like Hero Quest and i have to say, this is no Hero Quest. Of course, getting your hands on Hero Quest can be costly but even the AD&D series of games are more compelling (Wrath of Arshadalon, etc.).
We managed to go through one scenario and about halfway through the second before I really felt something was missing. Namely, the monster interaction. They are simply road blocks. As a reaction to an attack another player can move the monster towards you but that didn't really seem necessary most of the time and anti climactic when it did. The other thing was that the dungeon is all laid out there in the beginning so there is no mystery. Sure, you don't know exactly what flipping over an exploration token might reveal...but you know where they all are. The monsters are all on the board so you know what's "behind" every door before opening it.
So, it's basically you moving around with three explorers trying to be the first to gather up tokens and complet "quests".
It became ho-hum pretty quick.
This is a great example of the direction many games have gone these days; sub par gameplay with a box full of plastic and a high price tag to boot.
If you love painting minis then this game is a no brainer. They have a lot of character and the quantity/quality of them vs price really is worth it. But if you want a good, fun game to PLAY then you'd be better off with other REAL dungeon exploration games.
