That picture looks good. I have to say that I like Games Workshop and this is a good game though my all time favorite I actualy played is Hero Quest. I will have to play Talisman a bit more, only things that it is a bit slow but on the good side I like how things are happening, and You can fight monsters and adventure there in relatively short time :).

One CCG game that I had been collecting before and I still like it is MECCG, and I had seen online engine to play CCG with this one but it was hard to find oppnent and it lasts long. I wish that there is a good engine with single play mode for MECCG (Middle Earth CCG) like this one. Meaning this engine is very good and it works :)

You can speed up the game against AI opponents by going into the settings and turning up their speed.  That makes it harder to read the cards, though, so it's really only recommended for players who know what the cards do already.  Honestly, though, it's still faster than sitting around a table with four people and playing.  It's always fun, but it takes hours to get through a non-digital game.

You are right, I figured out about AI speed before, Thank You. And it is a bit slow but still faster then some games and a lot can happen and it is fantasy.

Today I have played my first online game, and player who hosted had a lot of expansions if not all. I was just surprised to see how board can be expanded and lots of othe cool new things added. I played Minstrel and was holding good, but was a bit slow as I was new to the expansions.

And after that I discovered tutorial option so I guess I need to go trough it and learn to play it good. After all I though yes this definitely looks like expanded fantasy monopoly and it is good, I mean at least from time to time when there is no better RPG game to play.

Wow I have been playing a lot today, and it is great but it takes time. Also on Steam there are achievements to unlock and to level up as player. I achieved 2nd level for now. Really nice game :) but now to DC.

It definitely looks like the player you were playing against has a lot of expansions.  I see the three corner board pieces (there's another one coming, which will expand the board on all four corners), including "The Dungeon," "The Highlands" and "The City."  Other expansions currently add multiple endings, more characters, a couple of NPC troublemakers like the Reaper (who can mess you up in various ways) and the Werewolf (who can turn you into a lycanthrope, and adds a day-night cycle to the game).

Yes I figured most of the things needed, only thing I don't know is if it is possible to play in windowed mode?

For the game it really is great and addictive, I mean it lasts long and it has very nice fanatsy feel to it. One of the thing I like is that it is possible to play evil characters. I mean just for the fun, only game similar in that area was MECCG, but this one does it better, because everything is more simple and it works good.

Here is the guide for player classes http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=323483911 to the right there is guide index after scrolling down, where you can click on expansion and see the classes. Also there is more guides on tis link http://steamcommunity.com/app/247000/guides/

Edit: I have found help about windowed mode and it works great, and window can be resized as needed https://steamcommunity.com/app/247000/discussions/1/619569608732472572/
