Customer Reviews

Three StarsIts a lot of fun but feels a little over complicated3a very fun gamethis is a good game for when your tabletop group has too many players missing and you all still want to hang out and play games. with the possible exception of a few of the cards (and excluding these only if you consider yourself extremely conservative), this would also be a fun game to play with children, provided they can learn the rules. the cards are of good quality and well-illustrated.this, like monopoly/risk/etc, is one of those games you can make alliances with other players and then betray them (and there is incentive for this), so be prepared for possible hurt feelings if certain people you know can't handle that.4Slow and repetitious enough to drain all pleasure from the fun premise.This games tries very hard, but it feels repetitious and slow to me. While the designer succeeded in his goal to create a satire game that lasts as long as an RPG session, it turns out to not be a good goal to pursue. A satire that is too long and slow is not fun. All the shortcomings of Munchkin without the zippy play.1Disappointed!We purchased this game on the recommendation of a GM in a reputable game store in the Twin Cities, MN. I explained that we intended to use the game for a birthday party with a group of 11-13 year olds and wanted something that wouldn't be too competitive. (We actually have one 11 year old and the rest are 12 and 13. The box is clearly labelled 12+)As we were opening the box, the first thing I noticed in the quick start instructions was a reference to being transported to a "strip club". Hmmm... Ok. I can explain the game to the boys without reading that part of the instructions. So, I keep going...Next is a whole stack of cards labelled, "Screw this!". The intent according to the instructions is to modify the game play as the game is being played. To play one you're supposed to loudly shout, "Screw this" and slam the card down on the table.Fortunately the birthday party is still a week away and there is time to substitute. Maybe we'll just go back to Dominion.We never did play the game. So, I can't comment on the quality of the game play.The quality of the packaging is pretty poor as well for a game in this price category.2Great gameGreat game, guaranteed for hours of fun (added value if you know the comic). When you read the advice to play the game on a large surface head this advice! the game will take up a lot more space then you initially might think5Five StarsGreat quality! Fun game!5I don't like itArrived Damaged2Awesome game, terrible packaging inside the boxI love the game, and the shortening rules provide excellent options to speed up and time limit a game that before took way to long. My one disappointment is the really cheap/thin plastic inside the box. The box itself was packaged perfectly by amazon with no marks on it, but inside the plastic separators were all torn up. I will have to find a different container to keep my cards separated in.4Great Looks, Sense of Humor, Disappointing Game PlayThe Order of the Stick comic is quite funny, if you have the right background with RPGs so you can catch all the inside jokes. This "board game" variation also has a lot of humor to it. I say board game in quotes because you build the dungeon room by room by laying cards down on the table. The graphic design is excellent.You play one of the characters from the comic, such as Durkon the Dwarven Cleric or Haley the Rogue Archer. Each Player has a set of Schtick cards that represent his or her special abilities. You start out with three of these cards and can add more in play. Acquiring duplicates of these cards gives you Boosts to their listed abilities.You move from room to room in the dungeon, trying to make your way down to Xykon's lair for the final confrontation with the big bad, battling monsters along the way. Upon entering a new room, you are given one or more monsters to fight by the other players. These monsters have funny illustrations and dialogue taken from the comic, and may have special abilities of their own. You roll a twelve-sided die, add up all relevant modifiers, and try to defeat the monster's attack or defense values, depending on the circumstances. When you defeat them, you get Loot cards. Defeat enough monsters and you can trade them in for more Schticks. When battling monsters, you can also trade the Loot cards you have accumulated to other Players, provided the Loot card has one or more symbols that match the character whose aid you are seeking. This aid boosts your attacks and is often the only way to defeat certain monsters.There are a lot of other elements to the game, which I don't have the time or patience to list here, except for one of the deal-breakers for me: Players are actively encouraged by the winning conditions and the Schticks in the game to backstab each other. Yet you have to cooperate with each other to have a chance of winning. The result is a game with a really schizophrenic feel. Are you competing or cooperating? Aiding or sabotaging? Combine this with the need to account for all the niggly little ability modifiers that crop up on various cards and which may or may not stack with other monster modifiers and room modifiers and adjustments caused by special Screw This cards that you or OTHER Players may throw into your battles to help or hinder you, and the game play is SLOW.Moreover, the sheer randomness of the monsters you will face and WHEN you will face them is aggravating. It's entirely possible to be facing extremely tough enemies on the first level that you have no real chance of beating, depending upon how cruel the other Players are. There's no strategy that will help you with this. Certain Player characters are simply completely helpless when encountering certain types of monsters that negate all of their significant Schticks. In addition, the Players themselves are woefully unbalanced. Haley is clearly the most powerful, with Roy probably coming in second, while Belkar and Vaarsuvius are one-trick ponies at a consistent disadvantage.This leads to a game in which it is difficult to plan, that requires you to add up a lot of different modifiers and keep track of special abilities even though dumb luck is often going to screw you or pull you through, and where defeating the most monsters is no real guarantee of victory in the end if you get back stabbed.We've played the game half a dozen times, because I want to like it, but my experience has been that it routinely brings out the worst in people, encouraging arguments over the rules, petty bickering over things like "why didn't you heal or aid me last turn?" and backstabbing that can bring progress to a crawl just when momentum was being built. In other words, it encapsulates the things I like least about role playing games and compresses them into a brightly colored, visually attractive package. If it wasn't for the humor on the cards I would give this game a "1" for actual play experience. It's funny, but I don't see the point in spending four to five hours of often dull play punctuated by arguments and resolving rules disputes just so that someone can cherry-pick a victory.2If you enjoy RPG parodies, this game is probably for youI wanted to do a review for this game, because my opinion differs quite a bit on this game from the person below me. True, I began playing this game not really expecting it to be that great after awhile. In fact, it felt like there were certain things that felt suspiciously similar to games like Munchkin.After giving it a real go, however, I had a very enjoyable time, and before I knew it, 3 hours had gone by. This is one of those games that is hard to recommend to certain people. I'm a pretty hardcore gamer, and I had fun with this, but I don't think it's for everybody. If you like RPG parodies like Munchkin, this will probably be up your alley. The only major difference is that you play as a specific character who gets specific items each game. It isn't as random.But while this game is meant to be light-hearted and fun, it can sometimes be very punishing in difficulty. Yes, sometimes it's the luck of the draw (most results will be based on a 1-12 die roll), but you can also get help from your friends on defeating monsters. That is, if they don't stab you in the back while they're at it.Sure, this game may never be nominated for any game of the year awards, but I feel it does a good job of trying to accomplish what it sets out to do. It's just that there may be games more suited for people who want to play games of this genre. The one thing I will say that I loved about this game though is that it gave me enough freedom to choose from fighting monsters, stealing items from other players, exploring the dungeon, searching for loot, teaming up against other players, and laughing at all the silliness that was going on. So if you don't take your games too seriously, and want something a little more light-hearted, I would recommend picking this one up. Below I'll list some pros and cons I found from playing this:Pros:+ Light-hearted fun for gamers of all experience levels.+ Lots of ridiculous humor specific to each character. They all feel fully fleshed-out.+ The game is different every time you play.+ Expansion pack adds some nice cards, including a variation that makes the game much shorter.+ There is really no way for anyone to "die" or "lose." Everyone is in the game the entire time without any significant penalties if you DO lose all your HP.+ "Backstabbing" other players never feels like anyone is out to get you. That is, unless you do it to others too much...+ One of the few games that is appealing to the non-gamer girlfriend crowd.Cons:- A lot is left up to chance.- Can amount to a pretty long game, even with just two players.- Appeals to a certain niche of gamers. Not every hardcore or casual gamer will probably enjoy this.- Certain rules can be a little difficult to grasp at first- Some monsters are far too common. The idea is that monsters of the same type give each other bonuses, but I would have preferred more variety.4
