Reviews of Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Rise of the Runelords Base Set

  • rated this product 3.5 out of 5 stars
Played this recently with a friend's set. Mechanically it's like 'D&D' light, with scenarios being defined as a set of locations with a mix of different cards that form a deck for that location. The adventurers explore these decks, hoping to find and defeat a villain that's hiding somewhere and can move from location to location (or deck to deck). Exploring consists of flipping cards and passing tests on that card depending on your character's stats. That sounds sort of dry, but the mix of interesting card art, different tests (monsters, barriers, traps, items etc) does give you plenty to find and do. The fact that the cards are randomly drawn from a larger pool in the box each game, makes each scenario play out differently of course, so there's good replay value. You can also gain 'experience' by changing the mix of cards your character has available in the game, allowing you to keep items and spells you've discovered in past play-thrus, which is a nice idea. My only criticism would be that the cards are printed on pretty flimsy card stock and feel quite cheap when playing. Still you do get an awful lot of them in this set. I'd be tempted to sleeve the frequently handled cards to give them some extra life, as I suspect after a fair amount of play these cards might start looking ratty.
