About this deal

Players should work together to determine the best use of their actions to stave off the monster invasion and protect the townies. The event cards are, again, very generic and lack a deep sense of theme - one card restricts movement to a certain number of spaces without much of an explanation as to why, others stop the special abilities of locations again without explanation or thematic description. The game doesn’t replicate the show’s stories in anything but the vaguest terms, and it doe The Buffy the Vampire Slayer board game looks nice, the original artwork is great but there is not enough of it, all the vampire tokens are the same vampire, all the demon tokens are the same demon.

This is such an odd review for me because even when an Unmatched set isn’t a “home run” for us, it’s still pretty great. Once the third plot is flipped over the villain fully reveals himself or herself, at which point they are usually placed on the board in a specific location and a special effect kicks in. This is a real shame as the artwork that is there is fantastic and if it had been spread across the entire game it would have been wonderful, as it is.The Spell of Phases lets you mess around with the moon and sun, while The Spell of Good Summoning lets you pluck a good guy from, say, potential danger to your side. And the group will lose some confrontations resulting in the destruction of carefully gathered items.

Different locations in the game have different power that you can access, which makes it seem like there’s an extent to which you need to defend and optimise your control of areas to accomplish the tasks. Fighting obviously lets you throw some of the vampires and demons around the place, but the basic fight action merely lets you stun a vampire – meaning it won’t activate at the end of the round – and won’t even touch a demon who simply shrug off even the Slayer’s attacks. The special actions, Artifacts, and Monsters of the Week add a lot of character to the game, and fun combinations can result in some exciting game play. As a member of the Scooby gang, you’ll fight to slay the baddies before they kill all the townies (or you)! Then an Event Card is revealed (one of these is revealed to start the game before the first turn), and this is how the board is populated with Townies, Vampires and Demons, as the card spawns them in specific locations.If a monster occupies the same space as a character then a wound is placed on the track instead, which isn’t so bad because there are a couple of ways to discard wound tokens.
