    Any know if they'll reprint this game?

    End of Netrunner

    People here seem quick to assume the fault lies with GW, with WoTC,... It can just as easily be FFG's who on one end went in overdrive with a variety of IP's and eventually ended up with Star Wars which they are clearly pushing as their main cashcow. The IP probably costs and arm and a leg but the 'easy money' appeal is a proven factor there. Can they keep up with all their projects? Are they willing to pay for the IP's worth? Do they wish to avoid being their own (semi limited) competition -> something they are starting to really do with their overly extensive mini's lines that dabble in the same pool. Etc etc. I don't buy this automatic 'Good guy FFG' as a baseline. We simply do not have the information to be sure of what happened and why.

    Game is Officially Dead...

    I have a the core set x2 and a few cycles but I barely used them. I don't know... it never truly 'caught' me. Invasion and Conquest are also quite good but 'gone'. Lotr I have and is still going and very fun albeit despite collecting it I haven't gotten around to playing it since 2 years ago.

    I was hoping for this kind of game... I clicked... And then I saw the presentation, lack of figs and the overall bizarre look. Soooo... pass. I'll wait for another L5R themed game to sate my warfare itch.

    FFG did this with Battlelore jumping to Rune Wars and now this. I know SW is a big IP. I'm a big Classic Trilogy fan but this does look bad on their part. But they'll milk SW for all it's worth. Probably have too. Thing is expensive.

    @BergerFett the SW IP is strong but somewhat in decline over the years. Toy sales and the likes are not as strong as they used to be. And the newer generations are more and more tied to a variety of IP's. Furthermore there's A LOT of SW IP's out there and a lot of SW mini games under the same umbrella. Granted in space, on the ground. Skirmish, rpg and mass combat scales. But this does seem to overlap a lot with other games. And doesn't do anything that exciting. Especially since all the cool Rebel toys are mostly in space. The Rebel popularity on the ground during the Rebellion era is quite lackluster. It'll sell but I don't think it'll have the impact X-Wing had.

    What does this mean for LCGs?

    Eh I never got into AoS as I'm an old world fan. (big on Mordheim and the Black Library novels like Archaon, Malus Darkblade, Brunner and the Bretonnia trilogy) but why i thought AoS was dead in the water i'm actually seeing a slow rise. The wargaming hobby is nearly dead over here. (me and my buddy dabble in many systems and play Mordheim with a few friends but the traditionals seemed dead) But AoS is actually on the rise. And in a way I do appreciate the system... somewhat. Not my thing but people are having fun with it. And they're buying kits which is good for local activity and the local store. So... i'm looking at it more positive than before. As for ending the current LCG lines. I've been collecting the LCG Lotr game (i already stopped with the SW one as well... i loved the art but it lacked something). If they announced tomorrow they're ending the Lotr LCG I will not even mind. They got tons of quests and options and frankly they're pulling plenty of stuff out of their (beep) as is trying to squeeze more content out of it. Also LCG's and CCGs are and stay playable if you enjoy casual play. Make some decks bring em out... have fun with a buddy.

    For Shame

    I actually prefer the prequels over the new movie. But ye know what... given all the reboots/retcons over the years SW lore wise (not to mention the current huge one). Just take what movies, novels and stuff ye like and stick to those. It is what i'll do. As for the business model. I did the LCG for a bit but stopped it didn't spark with me for some reason. I may give this one a chance if the business model isn't going to **** me over... I'll probably mod it for darkside vs darkside and all affiliation team up chaos. Not like we have a competitive scene over here for anything whatsoever...

    Where's our cooperative game?

    As big a fan as I am of oldschool Star Wars I only buy the games where I can play the Empire or Darkside. I have 0 interest in the Rebs or Republicans. This is the case for many. Hence the LCG was also massively changed. There was a lot of backlash as people wanted to play both sides. FFG probs won't go for a onesided affaire again. As for coops. I adore them. I prefer them usually over the PVP approach. But to each his own i guess.

    New movies?

    *nods* I'll keep an eye on it. If they transfer the cardgame to the new 'era' i'll pick up the missed cycles and expansions probably.

    New movies?

    Is it possible we might be seeing cards for the new movies? I actually stopped collecting just before at the end of the Cycle prior to Endor. But if in the near future the game would begin focussing on the new movies, I can see myself completing the old trilogy cycles and expansions. In fact is there any buzz about FFG jumping on the new movie hypetrain to sell related games beyond those mats?

    Size of box

    Size of box

    How big is the box of this game? Is it another 'giant' of a box like the first Descent or the DnD Strategy game in the same genre? Or more compact?

    Why no love for this game

    Bad reviews? I mostly read good reviews about it. http://firebroadside.blogspot.be/2012/05/review-of-age-of-conan-board-game.html http://www.armchairgeneral.com/age-of-conan-boardgame-review.htm http://drakesflames.blogspot.be/2009/03/board-game-review-age-of-conan.html

    Maintaining the L/C/R card mechanic?

    I love Command and Colors Ancients and I do not find it a flaw in the least.
