This game has some of the most beautiful art I've ever seen in any board, card, or tabletop game. It is the first impression that the game gives and it is a great way to be greeted when you open the box for play. I also really appreciate it's cooperative nature which makes it an easy sell for my girlfriend who is hesitant to play competitive games for two players.
There is some really rich lore in these cards and all of the scenarios we have played so far are interesting and engaging—if not a little difficult, at least with just the core set. I think we're going to be playing and collecting this game for many years to come.
I do wish that the core set came with 3 copies of each player card like the expansions do. The value takes a bit of a hit for me because it doesn't feel like a complete set.
