I've been trying to decide if #Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island would be a good fit for our crew. This campaign looks like it could just sway me!
The only reason I'm hestitant is because of the dic rolling. Does the randomness rolling, when resolving actions, make or break the game? I know that you can always use two pawns for an action and avoid dice rolling. How often is that possible though if you are actually going to win?

Your input is absolutely helpful!

I honestly don't know if I would play solo. I've never done that before. It does sound intriguing though.

I may just do as you suggested, sit on it for a bit and decide in a couple of months. Once again, I appreciate your thoughts!

That is a great observation . There are two things that have me doubting #Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion. The first is as you have said, being locked into a game for the next X session. I don't mind it at all if that's the only game we WANT to play, but I don't know if that will be the case. The second issue is that I don't always have the same group. That's why the replayability of a game is highly important. That way I can play it with several groups and still have it be fresh and fun for everyone. Not sure if the campaign-style games will allow that, which is why I was hopeful that you could play one off scenarios in JotL.

That is great to know about #Legends of Andor. I was hoping there was more replayability with each scenario. If what you are saying is true though, solve it once and then move on. Is there enough variability in consecutive game plays that the solution could change at all? Maybe I should be looking at some other options. #Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island has come up a lot. Not to shift the conversation entirely, but maybe that's a better option?

Thanks , that is exactly the info I was looking for. One of the great things about many games like #Pandemic, #Forbidden Island, etc, is that you can always pick it up and play again. While the puzzle remains the same, how you go about solving it is very different. I was hoping that #Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion had a similar component, but it seems like that isn't the case. 

So the question then becomes, should I be looking at something else?

Thanks for the input! I'm surprised that no one has yet to say #Legends of Andor. Maybe that is for good reason. They both sound like challenging puzzles to solve. 

Then my follow up question is, with #Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion, can you replay a single mission that is really fun, or does that mess with character progression? Or, for example, I want to do a single session with a totally different group of people that won't play the campaign?

Still looking to pick up#The Quacks of Quedlinburg. $60 would make that happen immediately.

Yes!#Stuffed Fables is definitely worth it and a ton of fun with kids.

What? A game based on Brandon Sanderson's Reckoners Series!  Well, you caught my attention. I'll have to go check this one out!

The dice rolling is just fine for me. The color of the dice that you pull from the bag determines the types of actions that you can take on your turn. How you spend them is up to you. The rolling mechanism adds a bit of unpredictability, which some people don't like, but it actually makes the game fun for us, not knowing if your going to land a hit on a minion or if you'll be able to recover some of your stuffing. It works!

There are 7 stories total, with an additional Print & Play story on the website. Part of the fun, is the discovery as you read through the tale the first time. There are a several different paths though, so for the first story, from what I can tell, we didn't go to 3 pages. Additionally, there are random encounters, lost toys to help, and a bunch of items cards. I'd say there is a fair bit of replay-ability. My kids read the same stories over and over, so I think they'd do the same here.

I think it’s a blast, as a dad to play too. I do moderate some of the bad things that happen so it’s not overwhelming to them, but it works well!

I just received #Stuffed Fables for my birthday. My daughter, 5, and son, 2, are loving it! Played through the first story over a couple of nights. They mostly love the story and all the figures. I guide my son and give him some interesting choices based on the dice he rolled, which works out really well. He is content just rolling dice and moving his stuffie. My daughter though, is making her own choices and having a blast!

Thanks for posting this @Courageous Bob! I would go for #The Quacks of Quedlinburg in this line up.

Oh wow, super excited for this. Agree with some of the comments above, the reviews so far look fantastic. I can probably get my group to play this!

Very excited about this one! I’be even hearing great things all around. I agree with @Marshwiggle92, anything stonemaier would be great!
