Had my first play of Mage Knight
this evening at FAQ - the Edinburgh Uni Boardgame Club (which meets in the Southsider pub every Tuesday night) with +Bryan Bradley
and +James Cruise
I went in with no expectations and really enjoyed myself. It's a coop game of map tile exploration, defeating baddies, recruiting henchmen with a view to ultimately overcoming the big bad boss.
I liked the deck building aspect and hand management as action points. There are a lot of pieces in this game!
Sadly we spent too long exploring the map and failed to control the city in our chosen scenario which meant the boss didn't show up (he was randomly wandering around the other side of the board).
3 of us ended up on the same experience points while +Bryan Bradley
moaned that this was "a rubbish game with rubbish cards" ;-)
