Total Plays: 5 cooperative, 5 solo Xenoshyft : Dread mire is a deck building game based on the movie Avatar. You have taken up residence on an alien planet in search of a valuable resource (xenosathem, in this case).

Contents

Collecting xenosathem allows you to buy new troops, weapons, armor, and items. After the buying phase of your turn, you're going to place your troops, equipped with weapons and armor if possible, in your lane.

During battle, your troop and the enemy creature attack at the same time. Also, The Brood have reveal effects that take place before the battle happens.

Luckily your own troops, along with their equipment, have some offensive and defensive abilities as well. There are instant cards that you can play from your hand to attack, defend, or neutralize the enemies in another way.

At the end of a battle, if any Brood are left alive, their combined attack power goes against your base. If any of your troops are alive, they can stay in the lane until the next battle but if they are wounded, they are not healed.

But, as you move up through the waves, you gain access to more powerful troops as well. The cards all seem pretty good quality and the tokens are plastic as opposed to cardboard, so they'll last forever.

The box is nice, but I was disappointed because my brother-in-law, Logan's, copy of Onslaught has all these little holders for the specific cards. Rules game is pretty straight forward, but there are some piddly little rules and things that are easy to forget and mess up.

Also, some of the abilities that let you draw cards from your discard pile on your turn have to be done at a certain time too, and I think I always cheat when I do that. That being said, the basic concept of the game is very straight forward and pretty easy to figure out.

The rules are nicely laid out, look dark and creepy, and give examples of gameplay. Gameplay probably think I'm a broken record, but I really love deck builders.

There's just something special about starting out with crap and then slowly adding to it over the course of the game so that by the end you have a super deck! I like the unique spins that this game puts on the deck building mechanic.

I like that in Xenoshyft the cards you purchase, the troops and items that you equip, get used in almost a secondary game where you battle evil. REPLAYABILITYThere are a lot of items to buy and aliens to kill.

Even though you can play troops and items into another player's lane during a cooperative game, you never really DO that because you want to keep cards in your own deck, and it's not really useful that often. Then the game just slows down waiting for each player to fight their enemies.

I like mixing both Onslaught and Dread mire to have more options with troops between games. Logan's copy of Onslaught has all these little holders for the specific cards.

I have both Onslaught and Dread mire from the Kickstarters, and they just had the basic plastic insert. I just picked up the new Broken Token insert, and it has really helped.

Yes, I have both base sets, Immolation, Forbidden Sciences, Grafting Lab, Psychogenic Lab, the upgrade troops/items, and some promos all sleeved and easily fits. I really like the Dread mire box look, so I used it. I will try to remember to take some photos of my setup and upload them in the next couple of days.

As I open the lid, both base games manuals are on top. There are cutouts in the wood for the player lanes and large divisions.

All cards are sleeved (Don't have the Hive expansion) with some room left. I found some dividers that someone made, but they were for horizontal card storage.

I also found a few card dividers were missing, so I created them. I found and printed some troop pickers, laminated them, and they are somewhere around the item picker cards in the top right of the box. As I open the lid, both base games manuals are on top.

Before this, I had everything in bags. It took me a long time to figure out the best order for the cards. I like having the different wave decks along the top, but it would have been nice to have all the items in one column.

Thinking about it, I might try putting the items in the right column and moving that stuff to the center two. Hi, I have been playing mostly solo recently (lack of time due to 17mo daughter).

But have come across this one, watched few YT videos and must say the theme really suits me! Hi, I have been playing mostly solo recently (lack of time due to 17mo daughter).

But have come across this one, watched few YT videos and must say the theme really suits me! It is true solo, you only need to play one handed (which is really nice).

I rarely did. As for solo deck builders, if you're not set on the theme, there are other ones I'd recommend:1. A Deck-Building Adventure (fantasy with a board, solo with free app, 45-60 minutes)2.

I believe it's actually part of the Renegade app where have their other games supported as well? This site prioritizes game information.

Prioritize PricesPrioritize Information (Change this option in the future in the Account dropdown) It features the same deck building and base defense aspects that made the previous game a fan favorite, but adds new troops, aliens, items, and the all new weather mechanic that can drastically alter the course of battle.

You and your fellow commanders must fight back the brood as North continues their endless search for more Xenosathem. You will control one of the North divisions, each with their own unique abilities.
