Rum and Bones

Has anyone checked this one out yet, its by Cool mini or not. I seen it at a local game store the other day. Its amount of pirate miniatures(some 70 figures)They looked so awesome and at the same scale as heroscape. It was a hundred bucks. I left there wanting, so I checked out some reviews on it on youtube and it looked quite fun. Now I'm a painter so I think I'll attempt to paint all those beauties as well. Anyhow, I got it on amazon for 65 bucks with free 2 day shipping, making the minis well under a buck a piece not even counting the pretty neat looking game inside on top of that. I'm really a sucker for pirate miniatures and have been wanting to pick some up. This was my chance to get a cool new game and have pirate minis for heroscape.


Heres what the minis look like with a bit of paint.

Will do, I'll be getting it in a couple of days. Looks like a heck of a lot in the box for the 65 bucks. Excited for a new game and more minis to use for heroscape pirate heros and pirate squads.

Re: Rum and Bones

Definitely interested to know how this one plays. I'm eternally on a quest for a great pirate game.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: Rum and Bones

Will do guys, If it plays well, I recommend picking it up on amazon as it is a good 35 dollars cheaper than retail and a good 10-15 cheaper than my usual mini store prices.

Re: Rum and Bones

No Kickstarting for me. Only aftermarket stuff, and probably well after market considering how full of dusty air my wallet is!

Re: Rum and Bones

I kickstarted Rum & Bones, it certainly did result in a ton of very cool minis at a cheap price. Very happy in that respect. We have played the game several times now and I'm still not sure how I feel about it. There are lots of stuff I like about how it plays, but one issue seems to keep it from being a great game. It seems like whoever goes first has a big advantage in the race to score a win. I have managed to pull out a win by going 2nd, so it is possible to go 2nd and win, but it still does seem like the person/team that goes 2nd is playing at a disadvantage. The only other issue I have with the game is that the Kraken seems way too powerful. Once it comes into play you just flee from it and wait for it to go away on it's own. There really isn't any way to get close enough for long enough to destroy it. Even if you could manage to deal a bunch of damage, you run the risk of bringing it down to just 1 or 2 life and then watching the other team finish it off and get all the Victory Points. So there isn't much incentive to go after it. The game has tons of potential though so don't let me discourage you. It is entirely possible I have been playing something incorrectly. If any of you get a chance to play the game, let me know if you run into similar situations.

Re: Rum and Bones

Hmm, interesting. Not sure of how the game plays at all, but maybe you need to give the other players somewhat of a starting advantage based on their starting turn order (like player 2 gets 1X, and player 3 gets 2X, etc.).

And maybe the Kraken needs a life reduction?

I dunno. I do like minis, though.

Re: Rum and Bones

I just got this in the mail yesterday. Man, the figures are so detailed and really neat looking. There is enough figures in there to do common squads of deckhands (3 figures) of regular pirates and 3 sculpts of undead pirates. Also the boson figures could be a uncommon or common hero. Also leaving 5 unique heroes for undead and 5 for reg pirates. Very cool looking. I am looking forward to playing the rum and bones game and converting them into a full heroscape pirate faction. Also, the mini plastic material is great. Not brittle and not too bendy.

Re: Rum and Bones

This is one I didn't buy but would love to try out! it seems both beautifully produced and very thematic. Are you going to go for expansions? Boardgamegeekers seem to like them.
