Review - Project Pandora: Grim Cargo from Mantic Games

Foreign editions: Spanish edition had a run of 150 copies.

Package: Most people complain about the box as it's being too flimsy. I don't consider this as much of a problem as long as the package protects the game.

Rulebook: Black and white, A5 stapled booklet. Includes the rules and 6 scenarios. 21 pages.

Rules

I was told the rules are similar to Dwarf King's Hold if you are familiar with that game.

If you shoot the Veermyn in a dark zone, they respawn. Opposed dice mechanics. Players take alternating turns.

Scenarios:

Tiles: Similar to the Star Saga tiles. They do not have connectors. They look 1mm thick, less rigid than the Doom or Star Saga tiles.

Miniatures: The miniatures are multi-piece figures that need assembly before you can start to play. All of them are cast in the same gray colour, so it's not easy to differentiate them. All of them have the integral flat circle to fit a Mantic base, but the base is not included. As the figures are created in dynamic poses, this might cause balance issues, so you should glue them to a larger base. They are rigid PVC miniatures, pre-cut from sprue, but they need trimming and assembly.

Dice: Medium sized d6, with dots. There is whie dice in some boxes, others have blue dice. Some sets include 9 dice, but I've seen some with 10 dice.
