“In days of Yore, according to Lore, after a battle,...

“TPK, Man, TPK!” the adventurer screamed as he rushed from the dragon's lair just seconds before dissolving into a fine ash. Only a steaming skull remains. “Hmmm” The dragon mused “Blackened. Is there a modifier on Blackened Skulls?”

Thanks so much for the review! I'm really stoked on the new edition!

And I certainly have a lot of practice playing games with the bad kids at 2am...

This game is more fun than it has a right to be. So glad it is getting another printing.

It had permanent residence in our "rounding the night up" duct taped Yatzee box that's filled with waterproof cards and plenty of dice.

How damaging is this to the typical wood table? I feel like dropping angular metal pieces on the standard wood kitchen table would leave a lot of tiny dents, making the mat more of a necessity than an option lest the she-dragon of the house start rolling heads for reals.

And shame on you for not having a single pun about the devs name being "Matt Fantastic" :P

No real impact on our dining room table and I'm pretty sure the wife would have noted it. But we pretty much play exclusively on a lazy susan now.

Assuming it is even available, are the gold skull add-ons worth it? I'm entranced and trying to track a copy down but not sure which version to get.

I'd say to check out the kickstarter page for the most up to date info. They have done some changes to the sculps of the skulls, so I can't really comment on what the finals will be like. I think the KS is shipping soon-ish, so it should be pretty easy to pick up. I'll reach out to Matt about stopping by this thread and answering.

Question answers...

1. If you play hard on a delicate table you could fuck it up, but generally speaking it is pretty chill on the surfaces. I personally still prefer no playmat but I'm the only one of the team who does. But you also can't fit a playmat in your pocket.

2. If you have it or can buy it now it's the original edition (the new edition dropped the "Dragoon" from the name among other things) but there are a few very minor variations across the few printings it got.

3. I would wait for the new version to come out if you're only going to buy it once. The original runs are done using all existing Dragoon pieces, and for the new one we changed it up and made some pieces specifically for HWR. The shield is especially better for flicking.

4. New edition will still be a minute till it's out. We're supposed to have another round of metal samples in hand in a few days. I'm being sort of a dick about them having the right size and feel so it's been taking a little longer than hoped, but if these are good then everything else is done and it's on to full mass production and then getting them here.

5. Gold skulls are cool and open up some additional variants and ways to play. Totally not needed, and it is a duplicate sculpt, but I especially like some of the weirder stuff you can do with them. HWR "minigolf" is particularly fun and different. I don't actually know how many of the deluxe KS versions are getting printed, but there will be extras I'm sure and they'll be available direct at least.
