    No news is bad news?

    Except for the fact that Talisman as it is released currently is pretty much finished up for expansions. All the main sections have been released and the small box stuff is mostly their own in house brews.

    To Forge a Realm

    Heads up the expansion is back in stock at cool stuff. For anyone else looking for it. http://www.coolstuffinc.com/p/152425
  3. That version being made illegally still is in limbo though. It's a stick situation with how they are doing it base don copyright laws and infringement. Honestly though there are plenty of great games out there now that are spiritual successors to Heroquest and are just as good if not better. Hell there was a recent KS that put out a game that looks and plays just like HQ but is a little molre advanced and has a ton more content. Hell Dungeon Saga is essentially just a slightly more advanced version of Heroquest that has a ton more content and is more readily available.
  4. There's really no point to doing a reprint of WHQ as the game as it is with no overhauling is inferior to many others successors that are currently in print. It's doubtful they want to put any redesign effort into a new version and considering how lazy they were about the Space hulk and Dreadfleet reprints in the passed few years I'm glad they don't. A card format seems more realistic from a design perspective and it's vastly more cost effective. Not to mention if they do it right it will be a smoother more enjoyable game that can be distinctive from anything else out there. I'm personally looking forward to pure card based dungeon crawl game that removes the fiddly parts of today's dungeon crawlers. FFG turned one of my favorite GW game Blood Bowl into a fabulous card game. There's every reason to think they can turn WHQ into a great card game version of itself.
  5. For the record MMTobin Kosmos has translated MANY games from German to English and done a fantastic job with it unlike the translation that FFG did for Andor which has numerous issues. There is also absolutely zero chance FFG will publish any expansions for Andor since Kosmos is going to do them all and already has two done. FFG certainly has put out many good top quality games but they do drop the ball on some and this is one of them. However on the up side anyone that has a FFG version isn't SOL as the Kosmos expansions have already been confirmed to be 100% compatible. The major difference in the main game printings will be the better translated rules book in the Kosmos edition.
  6. What company? I NEED to know! I neeeed to know !!!!! Awful support by FFG ! Kosmos Games is going to release the game and all of its expansions in English. Here's a link to the BGG listing for Andor. https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/127398/legends-andor You can see that the base game in the picture now has kosmos Label on it. They are releasing it around November 2015 along with the expansions New Heroes and Star shield. They will eventually translate all the expansions over to English. Hope that helps.

    Runebound probably hasn't been reprinted because...

    Seeing as how ANdor is being reprinted by another comp[any now and they are actually do the expansions I would guess FFG gav eup on a winner. The Witcher although a brilliant property and computer game is a complete failure as an adventure BG. They tied the designers hands to much in making it a mass appeal game to stick in every big store. It just isn't worth your time to play. Hopefully this will convince FFG to put out a 3rd edition of RB.
  8. Not likely to happy anymore since it was announced another company is publishing this in English along with all the expansions. I guess FFG didn't see any profit potential in the game. Kind of sad since this is one of those hidden gems that is better than most games out there.
  9. Only thing I have found broken in this game is the lack of available product to buy. It's pretty much killing the game in my area since we can't get anymore and it's still months out for a reprint. Why did they not print as much as ususal knowing people would have to buy 3 sets for competitive level??
  10. Where are you located at? I'm in the York/Dallastown area and I am looking to try and get a league started at CSW in York but haven't really found many who play the game yet in the area?
  11. The game is utterly boring and this says something because I play Talisman all the time and even that game has more interaction. This is what you get when you have people that don't play Board Games dictating to a designer how they want their game to work as opposed to making a game that flows well and is playable by board gamers. The only thing I can think of worse to play would probably be monopoly. They made a huge mistake with a game that could have been so much better.
  12. Lilikin said: I obviously mean from the GM's perspective, I personally hated the first edition for that reason as the overlord you had to pull all the tricks out just to have an even chance. is there any news on this? you sure you were playing Descent? i cannot remember a single time when the OL was ever in a bad position to not utterly crush the heroes. Hell, they had to add a mechanic later just to help with this problem when the campaign system was introduced.

    Expansions?

    In case anyone is wondering Roberto Di Meglio has stated that Ares games is in talks with possibly picking this game up from the now defunct Nexus. Nothing is concrete but Robert used to be a lead guy at Nexus (he's now a lead guy at Ares Games) before it all went to hell and his brother is a Co-designer of Battles of Napoleon. So there's a strong possibility that they may get it reprinted and expand on it. He also says the games was more successful than most think but because it came out when Nexus was fallign apart it never got the support it was due. I personally think these guys can get it and will. They got War of the Ring from nexus and there's no reason they can't get a beautiful game like Napoleon as well.

    Conan vs Runeswars

    Runewars is a mess of a game with AoC a little bit better. If you have 4 players get CiTOW and never look back, it's an amazing game.

    A second edition request

    yewsef said: Mordjinn said: I at least put all the different little markers (door key cards etc.) in a small tackle box. It makes finding them while playing A LOT easier and faster. I do agree that ER box is one of the best when it comes to storage solutions. Are you serious???? I use 3-4 little bags that comes with the box. One for the keys, one for the timer, one for the command points/dmg market and put them on top of the upper right section of the box. Seriously using plano box for this little chits is just uncalled for you are just storing too much for too little you add more junk when you dont need to. Most of these chits are used BEFORE the scenario anyway and the bank of damage/command points should be placed somewhere as a pile before the game starts anyway. I honestly don't see how you justify adding a plastic box in Earth Reborn insert. Check out youtube and find out how to store Earth Reborn I am just shocked how you burned your box even more when everything is easily stored there without any extra plastic besides the bags which come already with the game. Sandwhich bags look TERRIBLY unpleasing to the eye. I prefer to have asmall plano box fitted with all the smaller pieces and the minis so i can store them neatly. Quick and easy access is also a big pet peeve of mine as well. then again you are looking at someone who spent a great deal of tiem and money to create a carry case for AH and all of its expansions which also allows the game to be played from the box without ever unpacking it.
