I know that the description page mentions that the older minis (monster/hero) and cards (monster/hero) will be convertible to the 2nd Edition, but what about the tiles? From the example pic on the description page, the puzzle mechanism appears to still be in place, but is it compatible with the older puzzle fit tiles?
If so, this would REALLY keep me from trading in/selling my older Descent game. As it stands right now, 1st Edition takes up way too much space on my shelf for me to hold on to it...especially since I've actually cracked it open so little of late. Speaking of box size, I'm super happy to see that they're moving to a smaller box format. This makes me wonder what's actually included in the core set....LET THE SPECULATION BEGIN!!!
I also hope they've addressed the play time issue. I would really love for this new edition to be a great game to break out when my Warhammer FRP gaming group can't all make it to a session...but only if it doesn't take an hour to set up and 5-6 hours to play.
All in all, I'm super stoked!!!
