The game play is solid. The way that cards work is simple and direct. It would have been nice if the Honor mechanic mattered and could have been implemented prior to new cards coming out so players could get used to it. The card and token quality is good. the art is still very pretty. The amount of items you get for $40 is really good. However the value is extremely poor. You need 3 core sets to play the game properly. In addition not all clans get the same number of cards making unbalanced for a core set, but better for a starter. If you have people who bought 3 core sets they will win consistantly unless you also bought 3. So while the game is good. Buy 3, wait to buy 3, or find a new game.
