Yesterday I had my first taste of the characters in the Woods Expansion Pack 林包.
It was an 6 player game and the most immediate thing that struck us was how incredibly powerful Cao Pi 曹丕 is! More about Cao Pi in detail when I do my write up about him.
Here's a picture i took of the other ruler character in the pack: Dong Zhuo 董卓.
Look at the ridiculously long amount of health that Dong Zhuo has. A total of 9 units of health if Dong Zhuo is used as the Ruler. But don't let that fool you into thinking that it's tough to kill him, because after you've seen Cao Pi, it's harder to remove 2 units of health from Cao Pi than to remove all 9 units of Dong Zhuo. Till now, Cao Pi as the ruler remains undefeated in our play.
(Note that the super long health bar with 2 rows was an add-on bought by our friend. It does not come with the Woods Expansion Pack. Instead the expansion pack comes with extra units of health as separate cards to add for Dong Zhuo's usage. You can play as Dong Zhuo without the super long bar. We used the super long bar simply because it looks more fun!)
With the introduction of the Woods Expansion Pack comes 2 new "Demi-God" characters 神牌, namely Demi-God Lu Bu 吕布 and Demi-God Cao Cao 曹操. Since there is now a total of 6 demi-god characters, we decided to have an all-Demi-God round (aka Clash of the Gods 神战).
That's my character Demi-God Lu Meng 神吕蒙 (ruler), and anti-clockwise from me is Demi-God Zhou Yu 神周瑜, Demi-God Lu Bu 神吕布, Demi-God Guan Yu 神关羽, Demi-God Zhu Ge Liang 神诸葛, and Demi-God Cao Cao 神曹操.
The Clash of the Gods rounds were a blast!! Totally awesome!! I highly recommend you get all the Demi-God characters and have your own round or two. You will LOVE IT!!
Ok that's this post for now. Have fun!
