He survived however, and continued to menace Samus...he would eventually merge with a parasite becoming Neo Ridley, but again seemingly killed in battle against his nemesis
El fin de semana probamos por fin el juego de mesa de Buffy y puedo decir que no ha defraudado.
Estéticamente me parece precioso y no le falta detalle, la única pega que podría ponerle es que me falta Cordelia como personaje para jugar 🙈.
El juego está en inglés pero si os defendéis bien con el idioma no tendréis problema.
¿En qué consiste? Pues tendréis que matar a tres monstruos de la semana (los malos que aparecían en cada episodio) para luego luchar contra el gran malo (el malo de final de temporada) a la vez que ponéis a salvo a los tienes para evitar el apocalipsis.
Como super mega fan de Buffy el juego me encanta, un detalle que me sorprendió muchísimo hace referencia al episodio de "Once again, with feeling" y qué incluye cantar jeje... Me aparecido un detalle de lo más acertado.
Es de 1 a 6 jugadores.
A partir de 14 años.
40 a 60 minutos de duración.
Se supone que la editorial @genxgamesoficiallanzará este juego en su versión en castellano ya que lo incluyen en su catálogo 2019/2020.
De momento he vencido al Maestro y como no viene Angelus como malo el próximo con el que me tendré que enfrentar será el alcalde 😉 .
