Sweet Expansion - not a stand alone game.
on January 18, 2014
SDE is a miniatures boardgame where a group of heroes (controlled by individual players) explore a dungeon for sweet loot to strengthen their characters while fighting through waves of baddies in hopes of finding and defeating an epic dungeon boss all for great justice. All of the bad guys are spawned and controlled by a single player, so make sure you pick the smart one (the one that reads instructions thoroughly) in your group if you want a tough challenge (or go with the jerk if your buddies just want to play out your social issues through dice rolling). Anyway...
Von Drakk is a stand alone expansion to the game mentioned above. This box basically includes a pile of figures and a stack of cards all of which enhance the core SDE experience (it even gives the baddies a hero!) but can't be played alone. The models are unpainted, but assembled - unlike the original SDE. The quality of the figs is fantastic with highly detailed sculpts. The theme of this set is vampire, goblin, and graveyard inspired (if that's your thing).
The last thing I'll say is, as a 30 something gamer, I find it difficult to get a gamegroup to play this game with me - it's a bit of a guilty pleasure I guess. Most of the kids I've seen playing SDE at gameshops average about 14 to 18 but hopefully you'll fair better if your on the older side of gaming and pick this up.
