    Oh dude, I wish that he would stop that. I nearly cried once, I can’t remember which game it was but I do remember that the FLGS wanted $80 for it and he just dropped all over the table. My one escape is that I enjoy picking out components that I recognize and I’m genuinely happy when the cards land in packs lengthwise so as not to scratch or scuff. Otherwise, yeah, Tom needs to stop doing that.

    I guess after playing a normal pen and paper rpg, this just don’t scratch the itch.

    Sure, you’re wrong. …
    Sure, you’re wrong. The box doesn’t say Pathfinder Adventure Role Playing Game. It says Pathfinder Adventure Card Game. The rulebook does not say this is an RPG or an RPG wanna be. In fact, the rule actually says “This isn’t an RPG.” And that is the only instance of the term “RPG” to even be found in the rulebook.

    i dont own but have played several times. the card stock is in fact flimsy to my taste. this is definitely a sleever. as opposed to any game by flying frog lol.

  5. Glenn Rittenhouse says:

    no one likes the “components drop” except tom vasel for some reason lol. i ALWAYS forward past it. pointless, and cringe inducing to be sure.

  6. Glenn Rittenhouse says:

    its is as much luck …
    its is as much luck based as any actual RPG. the idea and strategy involved is to minimize, and remove as much luck factor as possible. for example assuming a party of 4. so multiple locations for a scenario. each location is closed with a different tactic. wisdom divine, or straight strength. tactically you place the character with the best chance to succeed at that location. cleric at the temple, and the fighter in the mine, etc. just one example there are so many strategic choices to be made.

  7. Glenn Rittenhouse says:

    There is a story …
    There is a story definitely. and the expansions packs he showed briefly tell that story. they plan on regular releases every quarter to move the story along.

    I have the same problem with it. 

  9. Gene Griffith says:

    I think he means …
    I think he means Talisman wanted to be a short version of a fun epic adventure without the need for a DM….

  10. s0mars says:

    The game “Talisman …
    The game “Talisman wanted to be”? Tom, I’m sure you know this, but Talisman was first published in the 1980′s long before Pathfinder and while it hasn’t aged that well it certainly had some influence. I do agree with the criticism about the cards appearance being bland.

    Go ahead and buy it dude, its ok, tell her its a card game not a board game.

  12. BlackRazor54 says:

    Ok your wrong.
    Ok your wrong.

  13. BlackRazor54 says:

    Put your character …
    Put your character cards in sleeves and use a china marker on the sleeve. When a new player uses that character erase or remove the sleeve and put a new one on for the new player to use.

  14. OdinWolf74 says:

    Except it doesn’t …
    Except it doesn’t call it an RPG. It calls it an adventure card game. Small, but essential distinction. Tom called it an RPG in a box, which is kind of a disservice.

  15. Barry Allen says:

    I admittedly have …
    I admittedly have not played the game but I can’t get over the feeling that when it comes down to it there really isn’t a story in this game, which is what I want from anything that uses the RPG term. Please tell me is I’m wrong.

  16. HarukoZ001 says:

    Which I believe Tom …
    Which I believe Tom already suggested in his video and it completely slipped my mind until I thought about it just now….this is what happens when you get old. :P

  17. HarukoZ001 says:

    That’s a good idea- …
    That’s a good idea–I think they have a mini set in this setting as well if you want to add that little bit of extra to the game. Another thing you can do (which is what I am currently doing) is put a clear sleeve on the character cards, and use a sharpie to mark the sleeve when you need to write on the cards.

    Just ordered it from my FLGS up here in Toronto. I was wavering a bit between this and holding out for Firefly a little longer. You review has made the decision easier, thanks.

    o man when you …
    o man when you tossed all those cards in the beginning I cringed a little

  20. KarlM1818 says:

    Well, this is …
    Well, this is essentially a CARD game not a BOARD game :P

    Ugh. I JUST made a …
    Ugh. I JUST made a bet wroth my girlfriend that I could make it until December without buying a board game. That was 2 days ago and now I just saw this review. Thanks Tom. -_-

    That’s not really saying very much.
