Wow I’m not sure if it kills those games. It is good but not that good from what I’ve heard.

I like it a lot more than those games (I heard) :)

I backed this, though I haven't received it yet. I don't have any game like it (or Gloomhaven or 7th continent). Mostly that is because I play D&D regularly, so I haven't had the itch to play a boardgame RPG, when I have a real RPG to play. That being said, I am intrigued to play it.
I could probably lend it to you sometime Trent.

Why do boardgames have to kill each other? :) These games can t even make each other obsolote because of the different story lines all of them will be a unique experience.I see that it is using elements from both game and also remains different, but I don t think it can kill the above two maybe it can join their company :)
I’m with you, board games don’t have to kill each other. There’s very few games that would do that for me.
I’m not bothering with Gloomhaven or 7th Continent anymore, so it’s killed those games. Mileage may vary.
I’ll volunteer to take those two off your hands for you ;)

After reading through the article I'd certainly believe what the author is saying for story, setup/teardown, etc. The only thing that will need to be proven through lots of people playing is if the core gameplay mechanics are of similar quality. Gloomhaven is #1 not only for its campaign, minis, and story, it's also a fabulously designed game in how fun it is to play.Tainted Grail looks pretty different so I think I'd just need to get my hands on.
After I saw the kickstarter I was intrigued but I'll have to dive in more to see.

The more I see and read about this game, the more I want it. I personally wish the theme wasn't quite as dark.... But I still would love to have /play it.
I agree about the theme!
