Sorry folks but I didn't really know where to put this and Eldritch Horror is one of my favorite games and one that I've been discussing the most lately so.....
My question is mostly, admittedly, to myself. I told some friends recently that I'd be willing to pay a moderate markup on FFG stuff if they promised to use it to create jobs, specifically jobs in playtesting or technology to make playtesting more cost effiecient.
I always try to vote with my dollar so if FFG were using the money to hire more real people you BET I would pay more! At our store FFGs balance issues are so much of an inside joke that there are some people that won't even look at FFG stuff unless someone else declares it "balanced." Don't ask me how they know it's balanced or what makes them the authority because I don't have a clue.
So I guess my question has two parts:
One: Have you experenced balance or other issues that you feel further playtesting could have countered with FFG products?
Two: Would you be willing to pay a moderate price increase on FFG products if you knew that money was going to be used to hire more real people to improve the quality of the games?
Three: (Yeah, yeah I know but this is more of a personal curiosity and kind of off-topic(ish).
Do you have people at your store who dismiss FFG "just because" or who need their FFG purchases approved by someone else who knows they are "good."?
Oh. I suppose I should answer my own questions: 1. Yes. 2. Yes. 3. Yes. Oooooor I could have just said that all my answers are yes....
