Have some similarities with "Talisman", though you play in 2 teams. Unfortunately the game has a tendency to drag out a lot and you are just going around trying to build up your characters and are being afraid to face the opponent, as the monsters are very strong and you need your strength to them. The combat system is also too complicated and you have to use the reference card all the time. It didn't get better as we had to restart several time, because the characters got killed by a monster. After two evenings hadn't we yet succedded to finish the game and gave up. To be more than 2 players isn't to recommend, even though the games requires at least one administrator per player....

The most of the things in the expansion set ought to have been in the basic set, as they only faciliate the game without give a better playing value. Particularly the dialboards and the money tokens, as this gets rid of the character record sheet!
