ENTER THE ONIVERSE THROUGH A MYSTERIOUS LABYRINTH. Onirim is a solo/cooperative card game: you must work against the game and find the oneiric doors before you run out of cards. Will you wander in each room, hoping to find the door that will take further, or will you let chance sort things out and trust in your luck? In both cases, you will have to deal with the slithering nightmares that haunt the hallways of the labyrinth. This new version of Onirim includes a total of seven expansions and one appendix.

First, opening up this game is a small thrill in and of itself. After you remove the top of the box, you are greeted by a nightmare who unfolds for you to reveal the two rulebooks (base game & expansions) which are themselves intertwined together. My description doesn't do it full justice. To see the quality of the components, I recommend going on youtube and watching "Onirim 2nd edition unboxing" by cardboard castaway. The game insert is of a soft velvet-like substance. The figurine reminds me of the same quality as the pieces in the game Hive, and yes, as stated in the video, it is cold to the touch which fits the theme well. The artwork on the cards is surreal but beautiful in an eerie sort of way, again fitting for the theme. I was impressed with the quality that was put into this. Impressive for a little card game.
Whenever I get a new game, I always play a few rounds of it myself to get a feel for the rules before I unleash it on my poor unsuspecting non-hardcore-gamer wife. This game was a joy to test drive. It is a solitaire game (but has a two-player cooperative variant). Gameplay is smooth and quick. I would like to make one clarification that was not made clear in the rules. "Discard" and "limbo" are two different piles. Aside from that it is not difficult to learn. After you get your hand, you essentially "draw a card/play a card" in an effort to build sets (location cards) to acquire the cards you need (door cards) to win. In addition, there are "key" cards that will open the "doors" quickly for you, and there are "dream cards (nightmares)" that punish you. It actually plays more fun than the description I just gave. If you would like to see a game played out, on youtube look up "Onirim the card game: play through" by Solo McLaughlin.
That is the base game. I won't go over all the rule variants for the expansions but, again, if you go on youtube and look up "Onirim overview - spiel 2014" by boardgamegeek tv, the actual designer of the game briefly goes over all the games.
Okay, my thoughts? My non-gamer wife is my primary play partner so I'm always on the lookout for light-to-medium games, that play in under an hour, that work well with just 2 people. This is a light card game, solitaire or 2 persons, plays in a half hour, and is fun to play. Score!
-2 stars for the shuffling.
-2 stars for the base game being very boring (unless you love Solitaire card games, then ignore this -2).
+1 star for the co-op variant.
I added the first expansion in to the mix (The Book of Steps Lost and Found) and the game plays much better. I feel like I'm actually playing the game, instead of the game playing me. Can't wait to try out the other expansions!
+2 stars for expansions
The third included expansion called "The Dreamcatchers" greatly reduces the amount of shuffling required to play the game! The "Limbo" pile no longer gets shuffled in to the deck, but gets placed on top of Dreamcatcher cards instead. This cuts out at least 75% of the shuffling, making the game more enjoyable. I no longer feel like I'm spending half of the time shuffling.
+1 for not having to shuffle as much with the 3rd expansion.
