Gloomhaven: Yay or Nay?

Postby Ragnar IronFist » Sunday April 30th, 2017 9:19am

So Gloomhaven has a new printing up on kickstarter. Only like a day left.

This is another with a LOT of hype and glowing reviews from everybody. Anybody here played it? Thoughts? Worth backing?

I watched a few 'how to play' videos and it seems to have some innovation in some aspects, but mostly seems like another overly rules-intensive dungeon crawler to me. But then I have a weakness for buying way too many dungeon crawlers and I can't ignore the hype lol. Can anybody who has played this sell it to me? Or confirm it's pretty much another fiddly-rules crawler with too much hype?

The best I can do is link to a Tom Vasel review. The Euro element of the combat cards is a deal breaker for me, but some love the puzzle of figuring the fights out.
