Review - Mazu's Dreadful Curse board game expansion for Rum & Bones Ed1 from CoolMiniOrNot

Opening the package

Review

This expansion adds magical Chinese pirates to your Rum & Bones game.

The ships: You get three Junker ships, so you can flank your opponent, even those that have two ships. There is only one objective and one deployment point on every ship. The locations are harder to destroy, as they have 12 hit points. The ships also have teleport gates on them that allows you to quickly move through the gates, between the Junker ships.

The ships are shorter (4 zones long) and thinner (2 zones wide) than the usual big ships.

The crew: I've felt this Chinese crew play significantly different than the other factions from the base set, or the French from La Brise Sanguine.

The Heroes of Mazu have some interesting magical abilities. Moving abilities allow them to move quickly, move others quickly, move through enemy zones, or even swap miniatures.

The miniatures look like Chinese. I like it that the bosun miniatures are visibly larger than the deckhands, so it's easier to distinguish them from the rest of the crew. The Heroes include really strange ones, like the Kung Fu Panda, or a small guy riding a big one.

The Tide Deck complements the Hero abilities, they add extra moves, they might reward the Hero for moving, or harm enemies when they move.
