Is it just me, or is Horus Heresy a really bad game?
Me and my brother played this board game in the past easter. More like bored game.
It seems the rules are utterly poorly written. Very very abstracted, and impossible to wrap one's head around on the first go. You have to like go forward two pages, back one page, forward ten pages, then read the first page, maybe even more - just to understand a single thing. It is really messy. It's like the person who wrote this had the attention span of a bag of feathers, speared by a poker.
No dice is used. Just the cards. Which really doesn't feel right for some reason. And the 'turn hopper' seems pretty redundant. I don't think anything interesting at all happened through event cards of any form.
So yeah, my brother was pretty miffed at me near the end for making him play this convoluted tragedy.
Does anyone have a better first-time experience with this?
I've had recurring nightmares
That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
To become a better man
