What you get: You get almost 500 cards (including your 7 basic heroes), a set of dice (multiple types), and a great tray for storage. You also get the first of many planned expansions; Burnt Offerings. The cards are well made, the art is quite nice (though admittedly that's a style preference). It may not be quite as much chrome (game stuff) as you might get in a larger game, but it's well made stuff and it looks good.
How it plays: The game plays 1-4 people, and it's a cooperative experience. The setup is intimidating the first time, but stick with it. Depending on the number of characters and the scenario, you'll set up a villain, henchmen, and locations to explore. Each location has its own deck of cards including good stuff (weapons, spells, items) and bad stuff (monsters, henchmen, and barriers). To defeat the scenario, you'll have to find the villain and defeat him. You also have to close all the locations (this means defeating henchmen or depleting each location's deck) so that the villain can't escape. You'll have to do this on a timer too. The timer is a deck of cards that gets smaller each time a character takes a turn. More characters means more abilities, but it also means the game moves quicker. All in all, this sounds pretty easy, but it's a little more complicated than that. Each character has their own set of skills and abilities. Some characters are good at old-fashioned combat, some are great at avoiding traps or casting spells. The actual play of the game involves a ton of decisions that you'll need to make, both individually and as a team.Read more ›
"The Rise of the Runelords" base set supports up to the 4 players, contains near to 500 cards and 5 scenarios.
The first of bi-monthly released Add-On decks consists of 110 cards and enlarges the number of players up to the 6, also giving additional options for smaller number of players including 3 additional scenarios.
The plan is for game to be expanded every two months with additional 110 cards.
Game is placed in magic land of Varisia where you must defend city of Sandpoint against dark magic, giants and goblins... Your hero alone or a party of 4 companions can choose one of the available classes (Fighter, Wizard, Rogue, Cleric, Bard, Ranger, Sorcerer) and go for a quest against dark forces. Each class has different skills and proficiencies, and RPG-usual ability scores (Dexterity, Strength,...) that are assigned using set of differently sized dice (d4, d6, d8, d10 and d12).
The goal of each game is defeat an enemy in a given number of rounds using different spells, weapons and allies help. The villain has its deck of cards that have different obstacles, enemies and challenges that must be defeated.
Good feature is that characters are becoming more powerful after each game making them capable of winning stronger opponents. Players will acquire stronger spells and unique weapons to their decks that make each subsequent game even more interesting. Nice add-on is that game can be fully played in solo campaign that is great if you aren't able to find one or more partners to play.
The Pathfinder Adventure Card Game is great combination of strategy and cooperation, at the same time providing a lot of fun.Read more ›
