Short answer: if you like H.P. Lovecraft horror / occult / mysteries and card games, yes.

It's a bit bewildering but it drew me in and it's got a learning curve.

Also, if you get it on week 1 of release you get all future DLC free.

Looks interesting but I cannot stand the timer thing.

Some cards are temporary ad expire and some actions take time to do but there's no 'mission countdown' as such.

  I got it.   Theoretically there's more or less nothing about it that I should enjoy -- but it is kinda fun and so far a good break from blowing things up.  i like popping cards into the despair box thing.  I'm not sure where the whole thing is going exactly, but so far it has been fun.

I thought this was a rather clever way to review a well crafted narrative card game
