So I picked up Dropmix(Best Buy had it for $50) and I am sort of torn on the game.
On the one hand, the core game is basically 90% RNG. It is possible that having a critical mass of FX cards from the expansions will allow for ginuwine choices during deck construction, but the core of the game doesn’t appear to have enough depth to let you really get invested in it.
On the other hand, this game is a goddamn super weapon as far as spectacle is concerned. You can teach the game in about 4 minutes and having this thing play what is almost guaranteed to be an interesting mix in any sort of play is going to get a crowd around your table super quick.
I feel like the entire experience makes it worth having, especially because you can switch it to freeplay and screw around, but I really hope to see another pass at the mechanical aspect of this game to bring it up to the level of the style involved.
