I'm looking at a box, and one of my earliest memories is looking back at me. An implacable figure in a blue-black jumpsuit, eyes obscured behind a helmet and joints protected by padding. On his chest is a gold badge emblazoned with a single word: Dredd. I drew this character in felt tip, from memory, before I was even able to read, without knowing who he was. That's how deep Judge Dredd had embedded in the psyche of '70s Britain.

Heard a whisper that Osprey is doing
A Dredd Wildlands based on the
Helter-Skelter storyline...

Man, I want both of these...

Well there it is.
Both sound good, not sure which wins out at the moment - more family orientated Lost Expedition or Dredd based version...

I'd pick on whichever theme appeals most.

I would say I enjoyed TLE marginally more as a co-op/solo game than Dredd. Dredd seems extremely difficult to beat and I'm not sure the new mechanics add much to the experience. Plus TLE has an expansion for more variety if you want it.

That said, Dredd has a better theme, naturally and as a competitive game, it's much better.

What player numbers would you recommend? We have 3 for family games, while the gamer group rarely is below 5 - would Dredd be good with 5?

Player count tops at 4 max. I've only played it co-op with 2 and 3 and it works well at both numbers. The competitive game is 2 only.

Oh, that's a difference then. I checked Lost Expedition which goes to 5 and assumed Dredd did the same. Lower player numbers would probably be better which ever.

I'll probably stick with TLE, but I can't say I'll pass up Dredd if I see it in an auction or on sale.

You can fudge TLE to more than five players, we tried it and just added a rule that whoever doesn't play a card in the day must be the first to play a card in the evening so that we didn't break the basic structure of the game whilst keeping everyone involved. I don't know if this would work with Dredd or not. You could probably just play with more people all putting cards in and it would be the same difference, it's a co-op after all so all that will happen is the game will be slightly easier or harder depending on your card draws. When we were playing it I felt that the competitive mode was better than the co-op in any case.

I eventually gave TLE away to a friend after it went out of rotation and with the expectation of replacing it with Dredd but I'm not so sure now. I'm usually a sucker for 2000AD related stuff but it doesn't sound unique enough to be more than a novelty after we reached a point of feeling all played out on TLE.

Same. Based on Matt's review, as much as I love Dredd, it doesn't sound like I'd be playing it for any reason other than the fact that it's Dredd. If that's the case, I'd rather play a game set in the city.
