A few days ago, I posted a video explaining the rules of the game.

 

 

At the time, I figured this forum was the last place anybody would care about that video, since we were all so excited for the game to be released! However, I'm seeing a lot of posts now expressing confusion about the mechanics and the big picture, so I thought I'd share the link. I hope it helps!

 

I've also started a video series doing a 6-character playthrough. This was something that, again, I didn't think anybody at these forums would care about (since I thought you'd all be playing the game!), but it seems like there might be some interest in seeing the thought process behind a full playthrough, so I thought I'd share.

 

Merry gaming to all!

 

Edit: Thank you all for your kind words! I'm glad that folks find this video helpful. In case the embedded link above isn't working, here's a hyperlink to the explanation video: linky link.

Good videos, I especially like the party of 6 series. Good job explaining strategies and such, thanks for making and posting these.

Ok, but I'm not being good until it's actually stickied.

 

Well done, Papa Boris!

That was really nice! Good videos. I watched your playthrough 0.1 video, I like it when things get down to the wire. I beat the Villain on that scenario on my last turn. Got lucky. :)

Thanks for the video, it  helped explain to my friends about the game mechanics, but i cant customize my deck like you do in the video.

Looking back, I definitely should have been more clear on that point. Thanks for commenting here, though, so that I can explain! :)

 

You can ONLY customize your deck the way I do in the video if your party is brand new. Once you've played through a scenario, you can't customize your deck like that anymore. To make your own starting deck choices, create a new party.

 

Merry gaming!

By the way, that is something I always do... but to make the game harder, not easier! I swap the most useful Basic cards for useless junk; later, when I find a Cure spell (or even a Long Sword or a Sage) while exploring I think "I must have this boon" instead of "oh, I already have enough of these, I don't need this one"...  :dancing:

 

Cheers!
