“Understanding the needs and wants of players of every stripe, whether they’re new to the game, new to the genre, or simply collectors who value incredible art and attention to detail, is key to making great strategy guides. Working in close concert with our testers, designers and artists, Prima has proven it has that understanding, and a depth of vision and attention to detail that make this strategy guide an essential accompaniment to the game itself and a beautiful book in its own right.”
