Having just played this and thinking about how to pimp the game I saw this come out today.

Wow, at $11.99 per set x 6 sets = more than I paid for the game!

What about the Reptiles?

On the Website I see Mammals, Arachnids, Insects, Avian, and Amphibian pieces. What about the Reptiles?

And if they have Reptiles (as they should) then 6*$12 will be $72.00 to get the full set (6* $11.99 = $71.94 for you nitpickers).

Erm. Do you have suspicions?

I am not convinced the miniatures will
a) make the game prettier
b) make the board easier to read
c) add anything to my (already immensely high) enjoyment of the game.

A picture of a board full of these miniatures will surely get a thumb from me - but other than that I will pass.

Agree. I'm not enamored with the cones, but these are both pretty unattractive, and for $70-$80 the Litko pieces are ridiculous (JMO).

Cheap plastic pieces like the animals they sold at Walmart for agricola would suit me and capture the theme better. They were 3-dimensional and much more colorful.

Meh. I don't really see these as being worth the price. Plus I wonder if it will confuse people that they are in the game colours. What if you are birds, which are a yellow token, but playing with black as a colour? I think that would be way more confusing than the look of the pieces could compensate for.

Pretty sure if you are using these, you're supposed to match up the colors.

I'll be interested to see what mayday comes up with for an offering!

I don't think these match the feel of the 1st edition game well enough.

Yeah, I think the first thing I'd be annoyed at is someone picking birds and then insisting on playing black. I really wish the game had defined the colors as going with a particular animal type. Would make the game state so much more apparent at a glance (let's see, there are all these Amphibians around me... what? turquoise is Birds this game? Well, damn.).

I did this when I first got the game and boxed up the pieces. Insects are green, spiders black, etc. Unfortunately, the game has recently come up with it's own convention which is different than mine. Now I have to decide whether, ahem, to adapt.

The Vassal mod enforces a convention:

Green - Insects
Red - Arachnids
White - Mammals
Black - Reptiles
Yellow - Birds
Blue - Amphibians

As I play more PBEMs with the mod, as a member of the Dominant Species Online guild, it's going to be very hard to NOT think this way. Also a problem I have with almost always playing with Red. When I'm not, I'm messed up...
