As the title says, I'm a bit annoyed by this latest move. For one, I was led by a fantasy flight employee at GenCon to believe that this cardgame was going to be compatible with the LCG. Although that was certainly no promise, I feel a bit let down. I'm further disappointed by what a wasted opportunity this is to expand the player base for the LCG. Instead of providing new players with a viable set of cards for the LCG, they'll find themselves in the unappealing position of having two decks of tournament illegal cards. For old players of the LCG who wanted a bit of HBO flair like me they'll find their hopes dashed and without any true incentive of buying another card game that is essentially a dumbed down version of the card game they already love. All in all, this strikes me as a bit of a fumbling cash grab that's left a nice opportunity on the table.
OK End Rant.
