Warhammer Quest Adventure Card Game

My son stopped by for a visit yesterday and we broke open my new WQACG box set. I had excited about this game for a long time and was glad to see it on my doorstep last week. We both greatly enjoyed the Pathfinder ACG and thought that this would scratch our Warhammer Old World itch.

We played two games, the tutorial and the first quest. Game setup didn't take too long and is fairly spelled out for you. However from there on things get a bit muddled. We were left to trodge through the rules and cards without much guidance. The rulebooks should have been laid out better. You will find a topic which you have questions on only to be referred to a previous page or the tutorial book. Overall it felt that the game was left unfinished or was rushed to production. Perhaps a sign that quality control has dropped a bit since FFG was bought out.

The Warhammer flavor is there; along with splendid artwork. We really wanted to enjoy this game as we are both die hard old world fans. However the clunky mechanics and poorly laid out rules left us a bit let down. We will give it another go later on and see if there are any modifications we can make to clean it up a bit. I will report back here if when we do.
