Boardgames?

Recommended Posts

Is FFG just becoming an LCG and minis producer. I ask this for two reasons: 

1) the recent news (rumors) concerning FFG ending it's RPG division https://www.fanthatracks.com/news/gaming/rumour-fantasy-flight-games-to-cancel-star-wars-rpg-lines/ 

2) for the past few months I've noticed that the FFG news page is almost exclusively dedicated to LCG and Miniature games with little mention of any boardgames. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/

If this is the case, I don't approve.

#1 isn't a rumor. Multiple articles and events have confirmed that.

#2 is a good observation and something I haven't thought of. It actually makes sense though if Asmodee is taking them in a more "profitable" direction by putting focus all on expandable games that can sometimes print money over risky board games. FFG has been in the LCG/minis market for awhile, but I hadn't even thought of how little they have been doing over the past year for that matter.

The owner of my LGS has attended GAMA Trade Show every year that I've known him and he said that for the last 2-3 years a lot of the talk has been about how the gaming market, and boardgames specifically, has been oversaturated. If that is true it might make sense to move away from those sales

I definitely believe that. Way too many new games each year, with a bunch just rehashing old mechanics it not so great ways. And the clearance sections on game websites never seem to clear out.

I adore playing board games. Every time we get together with friends, we take along some board games. But most of all we love economic board games, because they are many times more interesting and you can show your wits and judiciousness in them. Here is a review of the best, in my opinion, board economic games: https://jenga-game.com/reviews/best-economic-board-games/
