A quick game of Thunderstone. I wanted to try out how the game ran with level-curved monsters (sorted by XP reward in ascending order). We had a few weird games where we were left boxing up against an impossible monster in the start and I felt it had made a few games less fun or at least less well paced. I’m not alone, because it’s one of the most popular variants for Thunderstone.
This levelled version ran smoothly but also lost some excitement – some of the unpredictability was fun! We intend to play the level-curved version when we introduce it to new people, though. The first time should be smooth (*cough*).
