    Default Looking into Mouse Guard

    Hello! Recently, Iíve been hearing some people talking about Mouse 2nd Edition, and itís got me looking into it. It seems fun, but I want to know from people who have played it, is it worth the money? And if so, is it worth getting the box set rather than just the rulebook?

    Thanks in advance!

    I ran Mouseguard for a little while put of just the book. It's got a few things in it from Burning Wheel that can be obtuse to approach but doing them a few times really helps you get used to it. With Mouseguard specifically, combats/challenges are very different from most other games along with the concept of the GM/Player turn.

    For the book or the box set, I often have the issue of looking at a novel game or ruleset and thinking "Cool, but what do you do?" And that was definitely the case for me with just the Mouseguard book. If you have that issue, the box set might be the place to go if it gives you a little bit more adventure stuff. Otherwise, I think being pretty familiar with the comics and having the book would be more than sufficient.

    Thanks for the response!
    Definitely a good way to think about it, and since Iím not very familiar with the comics, looks like Iíll be saving up for a little.
    Thanks again.

    The boxed set is worth it. It comes with a map, dice, character sheets, GM sheets, and additional content (rules for boating and such).
