    On that same page you can also see Jaws and Jurassic Park and both of those have been reduced too. Jaws is $19 (usually about $35) and Jurassic Park is $25 (usually about $35). Jaws at this price went out of stock an hour ago but returned again a short time later.

    I'm real temped to buy Horrified and Jaws but the only 'fancy adult' board game I've ever bought (Resident Evil) has sat pretty well unplayed here for over a year now. I keep thinking about buying more, that I want to get into these games, but probably I should just stick to Monopoly. But then, maybe if I buy Horrified, things will click, it'll all come together, that it won't be like Resident Evil, that's what my brain keeps trying to tell me…

      I reckon go for it. Do you have other friends or family to play with?

        I have people I can play with but I'm definitely the one that would have to figure out the game's rules. No one else will even try and so it's left up to me (as the owner of the game) and I just hate it — makes my head hurt. What I need is a new friend who likes learning board game rules. Then I just sit back and throw the dice about. That would be the dream life.

          Yeah, that's just part of it. Have you tried watching YouTube videos to learn? Sometimes it's much easier than figuring out the rule book. You can also stick to low complexity games (like Azul). Two ways to figure which ones are these are the complexity score on BGG and the community recommended age. Anything that is 10 or under should be easier to learn.

          Is there a board game group in your area? Maybe on Meetup? You might be able to find someone who's interested enough to at least learn with you.

          Alternatively it seems Resident Evil may be able to be played solo, same with Horrified, so you can dive in and figure out the rules as you play, then when you're confident you can introduce it to others.

          Also agree with above comment about watching YouTube videos to learn.

    Should I get this or Gloomhaven? Or both?

      Totally different games, totally different play lengths. If you want to play a few different games in a night get this one.

      If you want to keep playing the same game for multiple game nights get Gloom Haven. Have some friends that have been playing Gloom Haven over 6 months due to the amount of time investment and only meeting one a week.

      The campaign book has 95 scenarios, but to finish the game, while playing a decent amount of side quests, most groups end up playing approximately 65 scenarios. This means that to finish a standard length campaign of Gloomhaven it will take, on average, between 113 hours and 184 hours. For my own group, it took us about 180 hours.

      I believe you can also get expansions to it to increase the length. If you meet once a week for roughly 4hrs of play time it should take about 11 months to finish the game, realistically a year of gameplay. Great purchase if you have the right group. If you can also spend some full weekends playing you can get the time down a lot.

    Thanks for your reply :). I don't have a group so I ended up getting this and Mage Knight. Never owned a Legacy game yet but maybe I get one in the future, was thinking of maybe Pandemic first
