<t>Based upon the trailer and the names at the very bottom of the screen, it looks like you'll be able to play as a variety of characters, which is great. This looks better than I'd imagined. Thanks for the follow-up posts, Joe!<br/> <br/> Anyone want to talk to me as though I am 5 years-old and exp...

Sigh...I'd buy that, I'm forced to admit. Assuming you had a variety of characters to play as. I would not want to be stuck having to play as Circe or Daenerys. Or I suppose you could just play as a non-canon character and deal with all the others.

Great review, Matt. This looked so appealing, but I'm glad I waited before pulling the trigger on this one. With no challenging AI, this is totally not worth it for me. No wonder Asmodee released this with so little fanfare.

Great review! I tried this last week and it didn't do much for me, but I did not delve into the High Stakes mode, which sounds a lot more interesting the way you describe it than the way I imagined it. Time to give this a second try....

Re: <t>Become Legend: Hearthstone's 'New Player' journey is tough, but not insurmountable</t>

It depends on what kind of gamer you are. I dabble in card games, I'll never be committed enough to get to legend. But I want to experiment in all kinds of decks. When I watch Trump (no not that Trump) play a unique new deck, I want to jump in and play that deck, but I know that I never can. I've h...

Re: Re:

I hear ya Biff, I'll make sure we do better next time. FWIW Matt only did what I asked of him, and what I asked of him was probably a bit too vague. There's a lot of good HS content out there and, surprise surprise, Matt does most of it! I was trying to find something that doesn't clash with his ex...

<t>While I usually am a fan of your work, Matt, this was pretty fluffy. <br/> <br/> Perhaps offer some tips for new players? Which classes to focus on building up first? Key non-legend cards that make life easier for a new player? Maybe even talk about the advantages of Arena vs. other play modes as...

<t>@TheMightyHoplite: I am so glad to see someone else who states it like it is about Dream Quest. I have never gotten the appeal of that game. Great that it's so popular for a one-man op, that's awesome. It's just not for me.<br/> <br/> @TheShoes76: Most people who really love Poker will admit that...

<t>As always, thanks for the great update, Nick! And thanks too for defining the new HS keywords. I logged in last night to open some packs and had no idea (because I don't read HS sites) what I was looking at regarding those terms. And I will need to make new decks, as all my Standard decks are out...

<t>Nice review--answered a lot of my questions about the game, and it doesn't sound like I will be making space for it on the old ipad. It looks so pretty, though, I was very curious. I had hoped it would be more similar to Age of Wonders, the old PC game, which is what the layout sort of reminded m...
