groan... I thought First Sand was about some war/battle in the Middle East.

Sand Castles... yuk

Thanks for the report though! Well done and very informative.

Reading this makes me think what Friedemann Friese's take on a War Game would be....

Solo Hero?

Are they kid/teenager games?

They lost me at 'real time' anyway. And the rumours about an app.
It's Kane Klenko, though. If it's basically "FUSE, but fantasy," I'm down for that.

Thanks, Morten!

Any interest I had in the game has disappeared. My wallet is happy. laugh

I hope it honors the contract I have with it about me getting 20% every time I stop you from spending money.
Shouldn't be too hard to calculate that: 20% of the nothing that was spent is... let's see... carry the 1, drop the 1, pick up the broken husk of the damaged 1, hide it behind some dust bins and hope nobody notices, evade the math police, adjust to a life on the run, then move to Denmark and let Morten know that 20% of 0 is too costly a sum to attempt to calculate again and it's not worth the irreparable pain and suffering I have cause that family of 1-times tables by accidentally offing their primary earner. Well that took a bit of a turn.

14. Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth. Peer Sylvester. 1-5 players.
Description: 'An immersive sci-fi western in which players must lead a team of judges against dinosaurs, mutants, and the Cursed Earth itself in search of an object of immense power before it falls into the wrong hands'.

This is a sequel/re-skinning of The Lost Expedition, so take that for what you will.

I thoroughly enjoyed TLE and like the theme, so I'll pick this one up too

Oooh, thank you for that info! We also enjoyed The Lost Expedition and were already on the lookout for similar games. Of course the Dredd theme also suits as well. Definitely gonna be on the lookout for this one then!

Thanks OP! I'm a new gamer, doing research on some possible games I'd like to give a try and you've saved me a ton of time (and energy) researching! Also makes it easier to know what's available to buy. I'm finding some games are hard to come by (retail wise).

Ry,

Welcome to the hobby! As you will soon find it will not take long to spend more than you should on games that look interesting. In hopes to save you a few $$ I browsed your Wishlist and have found a couple of games that have run there course at my household and rather than you spending money to try them out I would be willing to send them your way as a "Welcome to the Hobby" house warming gift

If interested please send me a PM and we can discuss further.
This is why I love this guild so much! Great move, Dejun!

Yes, I am overwhelmed by the abundance of kindness and resources provided to me as a newcomer. Why can’t every thing be this welcoming. LOL.

I can’t wait to start giving back, I thought of a few ways such as designing non-official expansion cards, but I certainly don’t want to step on anyone’s toes or get into any copyright issues.

Tempting. We just got a 100$ Gift card to FFG Games Center this Christmas. We live in Minneapolis Saint Paul Metro so it's actually convenient.

It looks more like some kind of Descent/ Runebound Hybrid in middle earth. I remember people in a thread over on general gaming wishing for something like this a while back when folks were speculating what they would announce at some big con. Guess FFG was reading too.

Except it's not based on Descent! surprise

I'm having trouble with this. Part of me knows it'll likely be like Imperial Assault, with tons of bits and pieces to buy and costs a ton of money. But the other part of me would be excited to be on the ground floor of it and buying those bits and pieces one at a time would be ok. Unlike IA, which there's just too much to buy into now.

Oh, I love FF... And I love Lord of the Rings. :-) Cards instead of dice? AWESOME!!

The small battle map seems pointless to me... why have a battle where everything is 1 space away from each other? But... this is going to be an instant buy for me. ;-)

I'm not sure I would be able to keep pace with them. I might have to pass on this one given I can't get my wife to watch LOTR, (let alone read the books) Any money pit this deep requires her signature on the contract. Not to mention one of my resolutions this year is to not go down any FFG sized rabbit holes.

I'm intrigued. But $100 to start? I need to learn more before I pays my money. I did read the info at the link and watched the advertisement video.

In a SGOYT post 1 or 2 months ago, I joked that FFG is currently trying to figure out how to remake Middle Earth Quest as a microexpansion money sink, and guess what?

I got so excited when I first heard about this game and then my heart sank when I heard about the app. Jeez... It went from an insta-buy to a nope immediately. Gutted.

I wish some of these companies would stop with the app-assist and just make computer games that play exactly like board games, but with a supplied opponent/gamemaster. I'd love a competent War of the Ring AI opponent for example.

Yep. Maybe, for once, it's time to put some faith in FFG being money-grabbers and hope thy publish AI card decks as an expansion.
