I'm truly disappointed to hear that. I was really sold on this but all these negative reactions and the price are putting me off.

THE major knockdown for me is the off-scaleness of the miniatures.
There's a lot of *lemony goodness* minis in the game, but also some potential.

Have a look on my blog regarding descent. I cover the miniatures quite....honestly :)
Also i have the game . And although ut is t perfect an isnt a dungeon crawler it is still a fun game. I would suggest readin reviews iver at bgg from people that own the game rather than basing judgement on why others didnt buy it. After all in your own right. You may think its great :)

Just checked it out. Thanks for the info on it. I thought it was a dungeon crawler as well, so thank you for clarifying that for me. I'll probably still check it out though.

I really loved Descent when it came out and I played it an awful lot. The rich gameplay was fantastic with all the tactics of potions, trips to town and back etc. But after a while it just seemed a bit repetitive and took sooooo long to play. I also needed to read everything if I went back to it after a while. So it has not, and probably will not ever be played again.

I think the main downside for me was it was a (great) combat game. I felt it lacked the roleplay atmosphere I get with HQ. Perhaps Descent 2 has more of that, but I don't have the inclination to get into that though.

I have to try that game one day. Didn't play it until now because of all the markers. If there are too much small things to handle, in my experience it gets slow to play so I didn't even try.

Afterwards, there is a lot of very good feedback on that game, so it might be worth giving it a chance.

When playing, treat Descent as it's own thing, rather than as a dungeon bash game. If you go in looking for a dungeon bash, you'll be dissapointed.

Also, you have to keep in mind that you cannot clear teh dungeon, trying will make you lose the game.

The mass of tokens is to avoid having to write things down (it's not a dungeon bash remember). Have them neatly sorted and you'll be fine.
