Resident Evil [Deck Building Game]

Resident Evil [Deck Building Game]
Release Date: November 19th, 2010
MSRP: $29.99
Promos: Pre-orders can get Alternate Foil Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine

The latest addition, sort of, to the deck building game genre! I say sort of because the game has not released just yet, and has been pushed back... BUT we got an advance copy to do some demos and help promote the game! Thank you Bandai! It is always nice when a company works with the stores to make sure promo items are available.  Players really like to get promo items when a game comes out, or during special events!

Here is a list of all the characters you can play as in Resident Evil:
Albert Wesker
Leon S. Kennedy
Claire Redfield
Sheva Alomar
Barry Burton
Ada Wong
Jack Krauser
Chris Redfield
Jill Valentine
Rebecca Chambers

Ok, now for the game and some of the cool ways to play...

Bandai offers 3 different ways to play the game right out of the box; Story Mode, Mercenary Mode, and Versus Mode. Each offers a different way to play and different ways to win! I personally find that games that offer a variety of ways to play tend to be played more, as it is hard to get bored with the game that quickly.

We have run several games of Story Mode using the First Timers set up.  Each game went for a good amount of time with interaction between the players, not just between the decks. We will be running some demos of the other versions soon, but we wanted players to be able to read about the game at it stands.
