Mixing a cool new line-of-sight system with a Hellboy-inspired theme of World War soldiers against the occult, Tannhauser is a fun romp obviously taking cues from popular First-Person Shooter games. The pre-painted minis are gorgeous, and the combat is fast and lethal.
This is a relatively pricey and counter-intuitive game to get into, but once you do it's absolutely worth it! The only downsides to the base game are not including more options, but they've thankfully complimented the original game with an entirely new army (Soviet) and many additional small additions. The goal is to play a game in the suggested 60 minute time frame... once you can do that, you really enjoy things and come back many times. Great system, and one of the best themes I've ever enjoyed in a board game!
the reason i love this game is its simplicity of play, combined with the customization of the characters. the pathfinding system is genius. no more strings or templates to determine line of sight. the added individual figures add a whole nother element to game play, and is a regular in my group.
