Once you get past the rather rough rulebook and some of the fiddly rules, the game play is actually fairly easy. After your first game or so, you’ll have no issue making your way through the location decks without having to constantly reference the rulebook. There is fun to be had with the , just know what you are in for when you sit down to play. While it might not be a true replacement for a traditional tabletop RPG game, the Pathfinder Card Game does a great job of incorporating those elements into a fun and addictive game.
Selinker is the designer of Pathfinder Adventure Card Game — a dungeon-crawling, monster-hunting, village-visiting, character-leveling, cooperative sorta-role-playing game. It’s set in the world of Pathfinder, a pen-and-paper RPG that publisher Paizo says has over one million active players worldwide and has overtaken the seminal Dungeons & Dragons in sales.
Once again, we come to an installment of Tabletop Co-Op, where we discuss the world of cooperative board and card games. This time around, we are taking a look at the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, a co-op deckbuilding RPG hybrid. Go on a quest, fight the bad guys, and find new loot cards to shuffle into your deck for the next session in this unique and innovative card game.
Which brings us to the replay value of the Pathfinder Card Game. Paizo has already stated that they are planning on releasing more adventure packs every two months or so. With the rules of the base set, you can play each adventure only once to get the listed bonus. That means, once you’ve run thought all the adventurers in the base game, you have to buy more adventure packs to keep playing (or start all over with a new character). As each adventure pack retails at $20, that’s a pretty sizable investment to play this game over the course of a year. For some people that won’t be an issue, but for the more budget-conscious gamer, that could be a barrier to further enjoyment of the game.
