Played the expansion for the first time last night. Initial thoughts are that it seemed the easiest of all the expansions for this great game (although maybe we were just lucky- we were playing with the 'easiest' elder god contained in this pack). The components as always are great and the artwork is terrific. *Spoiler* At no point during this game did we feel under any kind of real threat - our boat did not get wrecked (in fact we had only one deep one during the first stage) and the second stage was methodically taken apart leaving us with a comfortable win. I would even suggest that some of the adventure card rewards are too good, we were playing a 2-player game and nearly ran out of clue tokens we had so many! I will certainly be trying it with the other elder gods (I can see Cthulhu being a real problem) and hopefully the challenge will increase. All in all though - this is another good expansion for adding to your game and certainly contains some new interesting dynamics.
Buena expansión. Agrega una variante buena al juegl como la expansiones previas con dos escenarios en secuencia, pero es despiada y te encontras con un juego dificil de ganar aun con los enemigos mas debiles. Es buena pero dificil.
Elder Sign has been one of our favorite games for years. We play at least once a month.
The most recent expansions have taken the game out of the museum. This expansion takes the investigators to the deep ocean. While the core mechanics have stayed the same. The new adventure cards and monsters capture the theme well.
This expansion also adds skills, which I found to be a great expansion feature expansions. The skill decks from other expansions can be combined with this one.
Many of the components are combined with the base set, but the adventures and omens are totally separate for the ocean theme.
The expansion easily stores in its separate box with the combined components fitting into the main box. But for serious Elder Sign fans, check out the storage solution from Broken Token.
We really like this expansion; the new cards live upto my high expectations for art and story. This expansion adds a fresh feel to Elder Sign.
This expansion adds a whole different level of difficulty, but I like a challenge! It has two phases, in which if you make it to phase two, it seems to get a little easier as you start getting Elder Signs to defeat the final monster. I played at least 10 games and only won once, it adds that much to the game! Quality components as usual from Fantasy Flight Games and I'm looking forward to playing the other expansions for Elder Sign.
