I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are wooden cubes from boardgaming. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

Is there any word on a reprint for Europe Engulfed? I don't even see this on the P500.

Somewhere between highly unlikely and not going to happen. I heard from Rick Young that he is working something similar.

That is unfortunate.

When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.

Not a bad news story. It won't be reprinted in its current form, but he wants to tinker with the design and make the game a bit faster-playing then publish. So in the meantime, it's the used market for EE.

- What's new Leonardo?
- Well, basically I want to repaint the Mona Lisa to make her look more like Lady Gaga. I think that is the right direction.


I dunno. Can EE really get better by being faster?

I agree with this statement. What's the point of making a very good game as is play faster? The game time does not scare me.

It may not. But I feel that an excellent game that is difficult to get on table because of the time commitment is worse than the faster one that has no significant playability disadvantage.

Completely agree with you there. A game with lackluster gameplay that can be played frequently is better than a perfect game that can never be played because it takes too long or is too complicated.

Still disappointed to see EE out of print though. It's a playable classic even if it doesn't live up to the designer's original expectation of an 8 hour game.
