A couple of years ago I got to play a couple of games of this gem, and remember those sessions fondly.

So discovering that a new edition is actually in the works couldn't be a more welcome news

Reading around the forums I already like where this is heading, and the guys behind it seem to know pretty well what they're doing; so this might not be relevant, but it can't hurt to put it out there.

Speaking for the completist/collector tendencies in us all, have you folks behind the new edition considered including everything that is to find about the original Kremlin? I'm talking about the several "variants" that are listed in the GENERAL magazine. Are they worth it? Are there any others variants or additional material that the project could benefit from?

Wish you guys all the best!

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

IMHO the basic Kremlin game is all you need.

I never liked the AH Kremlin: Destalinization Expansion or Kremlin: Revolution expansions, as they try to take that game seriously. Which is a completely wrong approach. Kremlin is all about making fun of the old party communists, and not about historical events. meeple

I agree with Ron. This game is about fake Russian accents, sending people to the Siberia, and aging the characters rapidly with stress. I like the fake Russian names. I would not cheapen it with a dose of reality.

Ron & I are both completists, and I've never felt an urge to do anything other than play the base game.

The JRG edition's going for guns and butter on this.

Playing the original version will be doable--as will the Revolution-style. A third will be included with modern Soviet politicians and some other twists.

The events will be altered to fit the time period (but that's mainly a flavoring/naming thing)--but the whole thing of aging guys 50 years as a 'recon by fire' to see if someone has influence on a guy...yup, still there
