This game should still be called #Epoch or the name should have been changed to #Redemption but instead it was hypocritically and contradictorily called #vindication Which is why I hate it, because the literal inherent contradiction promotes evil.
Why do I own a copy and am posting about it?
As an objective reviewer, it is my due diligence to give it a try, and all reports were saying that it's well designed. Thus, I traded for a #swanky copy, mainly for that reason but also because my trade was not going to return it's cash value in a sale.
Is it truly well designed?
Yes, the contradictory hype is real, this is a really good game! Overall it's an abstract adventure game where you can plug and play a bunch of modules that add flavour, intrigue, and unique abilities to each #abstract #pointsalad #adventure that you head out on.
One other significant issue is highlighted in my second photo. Despite there being really well done minis in the game, they are completely #useless and were even forgotten in our plays, except this one time. #sad
Is it worth your money?
Not as a #kickstarter with the extraneous components. I suggest waiting until retail, so that you don't have to pay for plastic sculptures that you won't use and metal tokens that don't even match your player colour. #smh But, do get a cheaper version, because the game is good, despite promoting evil and being absurdly over priced and over produced.
