I can’t quite seem to help myself with new games. Carnevale has periodically caught my eye a couple of times. I finally took the plunge.
The 2-player starter is a pretty good value, with a big pile of cardboard buildings, 1×1 foot tiles for a board, and a decent size start for each faction.
The models in the starter are all one-piece, which is great for ease of use. But some, like the Raadru in the middle here, suffer pretty badly in the limitations of one piece. It would be great to get him as more than just a big ol lump of resin.
And then there are the slaves, which can feed themselves to the monsters for some extra health.
