I am trying to come up with christmas gift ideas and was considering tossing Warhammer Invasion on my list. It seems to have gotten a lot of good reviews and its based around the warhammer world. So that's 2 gold stars for me.

I was just curious if anybody on here owns it and what do you all think of it? Also... Any mention of whether or not you are coming from a MtG or other card playing background and how it compares would be good.

Artwork looked pretty bad@ss. Always hard to tell with card games though since they're EVERYWHERE now. I look forward to anyone who reports on how this one stacks up.

I bought the game and we had our first games on friday. While the game mechanics are fairly straightforward, the gameplay introduces several tough choices to make: where to play cards, which opponent zone to attack or when to use certain actions. I can't comment on the game balance yet, as we played only 4 games and played some rules wrong. We had read the rules beforehand, but it took a while to get used to mechanics and develop some strategy. I hope to get couple of more games under my belt tomorrow. From what I have seen by now, the game appears to be good and exciting, but some of the appeal is certainly because of Warhammer theme.

For those that are interested in the game, I can suggest video tutorial at FFG site (http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_minisite_sec.asp?eidm=85&esem=4) and take a look at BoardGameGeek entry for Warhammer: Invasion (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/47185).

I've been playing it a lot, and it's a fast paced and entertaining game! Captures the spirits of the Warhammer races really well in my opinion. If You are interested in any of the races in the core set, I can recommend it.

The video link was very helpful for getting an idea what the game is all about, thanks :)
