I just played today for the first time and I liked it! A few things to note based on some of the questions here:
- We played with just two people. I don't think adding more people will necessarily change how long it takes because you'll work in teams rather than as individuals.
- There's a sort of dumbed down "first game" that lets you practice the game mechanics without getting into some of the nitty gritty details, which I really enjoyed. We were probably through the first game in 15 minutes tops once we started playing, but I thought it was a nice way to ease into the game.
- The full game took us less than an hour to get through, at least with the scenario we played. There are several scenarios you can use once you get into the full game that give you different objectives to win. We played one where you earn points for occupying space.
- There looks to be a lot of room for mixing and matching sets, at least within a property. I played the HP game and it specifically mentioned bringing in multiple versions of HP games, but I don't know how it might work if you wanted to combine, say, DC and HP.
Overall it was a fun strategy game to me! The mechanics didn't seem overly complicated, which made it easier to hop into the game more quickly, and I liked that it required some solid strategizing rather than relying overly much on luck. I'm looking forward to adding the other HP set in and mixing up the characters a bit!
