PW:U and Malifaux

Recommended Posts

I've been lurking for some time and have been very interested in PW:U despite the lack of continued support since its release. So i have a few questions to make a more informed decision on whether or not to purchase this in the future.

1. How similar is this game to Malifaux?

2. Is this game easy to teach to non-gamers? For example i play with a very small number of people, 1 of which doesn't like anything heavier than Pandemic.

3. What is the quality of the miniatures?

Thank you to all who take the time to answer these questions! :lol:

The game is very different from Malifaux.

It is relatively easy to teach non-gamers. I never had an issue teaching either version of the game to non-gamers in only a turn.

Both miniatures batches (metal and plastic) were very nicely done. The plastics are easy to work with and have good detail.

Both games have their rules available for free on Wyrd's website (see the 'Resources' page), so you can compare them yourself. Much of the flavour of Malifaux seeps into PWU but the latter is simpler. You still flip cards to resolve actions, have a hand of cards with which to augment flips, each character has their own set of actions and abilities, etc.
