The new Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Board Game 13 Apr 2017 22:23 #246527

Granted I haven't been super active on the forums of late, but has anyone played the new Buffy the Vampire slayer game? Was thinking about getting it for my wife's birthday as we both enjoyed the show. I bought the old game off ebay years ago, and while it was kind of fun as a simple adventure game it never saw much play due to the 1 vs. all gameplay and none of our friends were really into the show. The new game is a co-op though which makes me think we might have fun playing it, but is it just a Arkham Horror lite? Not that would necessarily be a bad thing.

I've played it twice. It's ok, it won't win any trashdomes anytime soon but with the wife if a fan of the show it might be nice. It's lite maybe closer to pandemic than the Arkham Horror or Eldrich Horror.

I like the original game better than the new version, it's more unique. The original version has the moon dice and the phases of the moon which was very cool in the original version. The new version seem more like pandemic with a Buffy Theme.

I forgot about the moon dice and phase system, that was pretty cool. Hmm ... I think I'd rather have it closer to AH than Pandemic. It's been years since we watched the show, so not sure the theme would be as appealing?
