In Sword & Sorcery, you control heroes with unique powers; legendary characters, brought back to life by powerful sorcery. Weakened by the resurrection, they grow stronger during the story-driven quests. Explore dangerous ruins, ominous forests, and the besieged cities of the Talon Coast. Fight together against the forces of evil, controlled by the game system itself, to save the kingdom and break the spell that binds their immortal souls. Sword & Sorcery is the ultimate heroic fantasy board game experience, with an advanced AI system for monsters, a high degree of character customization, and rich tactical options during battles. At the same time, gameplay is fast and dynamic, thanks to an innovative area movement and area control system, and to new features never seen together in a game of this category: -Ultra detailed 32mm scale figures -Solo or group fully cooperative gameplay, with no game master -No player elimination: when your hero dies, you continue to play as an ethereal soul -Ten different hero classes with hundreds of skills, weapons and spells to choose from -Sophisticated combat and magic system, using tensided custom dice and an intuitive cooldown system for spells and skills -Modular boards, allowing the creation of endless new quests -A deep, story-driven campaign, with different paths to follow and multiple endings

Initial thoughts - I own a few 'Dungeon' games, and each has its merits, but S&S is the first I have owned that feels like a 'true' Dungeon Crawler. To cite just two of the things I am a fan of: 1) I LOVE that the Scenario goals are not wrapped up in a neat little bow at the start and that you need to discover what is going on bit-by-bit. So immersive! 2) The way the tiles work is masterful. Those little sight marks on each area are BRILLIANT! While S&S certainly has a lot of complexity to it, not having to faff around with hexes is a breath of fresh air. I still have a lot of reading to do and things to figure out (yes, there is a lot), but this game has already totally won me over.Once I’ve internalised the rules, I am sure I will bump this up to a 9, easy. More thoughts to follow...

Kickstarter Immortal Hero pledge. I'm about halfway through a campaign playing with a friend. The story is decent though I would rather not have the goofy pop culture references (e.g. meeting a tomb raider named Lara). Gameplay is fun but requires frequent rule references. It's a bit fiddly I suppose, but no worse than others in the genre. I'm playing Gloomhaven too and while it has better gameplay than S&S, this one is probably more fun. I prefer Descent with the Road to Legend app to either.
