Really tempting - the game itself has so many expansions I don't even know where I'd start after playing the core game...but the minis are gorgeous.

Darkroot- then either the character pack, or the summons pack. After that a megaboss.

Also great game, very very long

Is this game still enjoyable if you never played the video game?

Is this board game as hard as the video game?

This game is really hard just like its video game counterpart i guess so I'd caution getting it. Check the reviews first and make an informed decision The enemies are super hard so the game isn't really super balanced, takes a lot of fun out of the game.

People say this game is pretty good, especially the boss fights, but some house rules are required to make the game more fun. I dont have the game but something like giving yourself twice as many souls to make it less grindy.

This is tearing me apart. I'm still waiting to receive the complete collection of Bloodborne from CMON on Kickstarter. Q.Q I wish I could pull the trigger, but so many expansions dear god

Yup, the base game rules were not good, so many people created house rules for them. I haven't tried many but I think the extended rules work well: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... p3vadFUfyv

6.6 rating and a rank of 2265 is not blind buy worthy especially for $90.
When you think about it $90 can buy you incredible games.
A boardgame with great production and great minis is worth nothing if it stays on the shelf because it's too boring to play.

I've heard not great things about the game with the 'out of the box' rules, but like someone mentioned above I think there are some really good house rule sets that address this. This is a good price for the game, if you like the IP and want the cool minis I think this is an alright deal. Sure, if your goal is to get the best board game your $90 is going to get you then there are probably better options out there.

I would stay away from these kind of games. I played Kingdom Death and my group died at the second lion twice. What a waste of time, and the game host treated everyone like crap by micromanaging (coop? He might as well play by himself Lol)
Best shopping deals I got from here:
Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom $300, ZTE Blade V8 Pro $175, Fluld 55' 4k TV $360

Looks too hardcore to be fun. Just like the video game, lol, for me at least.

Unforgiving like the videogame. So to win combat, you need to throw two dice, get 6 on both and have one land and stay on top of the other one.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't say not to buy the game or judge the person who buys it. I simply say that before buying a $90 game with this rating, you should make sure to play it first. If you cannot play it first and want to blind buy a game, you better get something with better ratings or at least a game there are more people wanting to get it in trades than the people that wants to trade it.

Out of curiosity, I looked at my ratings on BGG and out of about 500 games I currently own or owned in the past, there are only 3 games I rate an 8 or above that has a BGG rating of 6.6 or bellow, so you might be lucky, but I wouldn't take the chance for $90.

I really hated the game and except for the minis it didn't have any redeeming quality about it.
I would stay far away at that price.
