Orcs Must Die! The Boardgame: Unchained Edition dares you to preserve your stronghold sieged by orcs. Teamed with Robot Entertainment, our new game is precisely adapted to the tabletop environment. It includes scores of great plastic figures including your favorite heroes, plus hordes of orcs, crossbow orcs, kobolds, trolls, ogres, and more. Build a fortress, then watch swarms of baddies plunge through your defenses.

Looks good but too random
This game has good miniatures and a good premise. Unfortunately, it is let down by an over-reliance on randomness and a lack of meaningful decisions. I hope that Peterson games revisits this to smooth it out because the premise is really good and I feel that some good ideas got cut in the development. For example, every tile is the same but there is a huge name on each tile, making me believe that these used to matter.

There are also some quite unforgiveable typo's.
