To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
1) This box has odd dimensions - While there are title cards (more on this later), even those do not take up the whole width of the box. I found that even with sleeves, the width of the box is a bit wider than I'd like. 2) Yes there are title cards, but... Title cards only cover encounter cards specifically used in the Path to Carcosa and Return to the Path of Carcosa expansions. There are no title cards for any other encounter sets, which is annoying, because there are some sets used in both this and other campaigns, so there is still no easy way to keep all encounter cards in the same place without making additional title cards. 3) You need the base expansion. If you don't have Path to Carcosa OG expansion, stop here, buy it, then come back. 4) Cardstock is the same high quality we expect from other FFG products. 5) There are plenty of extra cards to help flesh out decks and keep your game fresh
Overall this was a good purchase, but I wish they had put a little more thought into box dimensions and printing the extra 1-2 dozen title cards to make this more useful.
The premise is really interesting and there is a huge community out there if you are passionate about this; which is great. I’ve read most of H.P. Lovecraft’s works and enjoy the setting. However, there is a really steep learning curve to this game. I grew up playing D&D (multiple editions), MtG, Video Games, Risk, etc...and I found the instructions to be very anemic and unhelpful. I had to watch several YouTube videos and join a FaceBook group to really figure it out. That alone makes me not want to play past the first scenario. I also think, for what you pay, the packaging storage could be much better. There a lot of little pieces and they make poor use of the box space to meaningfully store them. Sadly, we bought an expansion when we purchased the main game and I doubt it will see use.
