The Prodigals Club, followup to Last Will with even more things to lose before winning.

Update: Apparently, it is even possible to combine it with Last Will !

Update 2: I checked the GenCon video from BGG, the game is made of 3 modules that you can combine (2 modules or even all 3). And Last Will can replace one of those modules. So I should play Last Will again before Essen to get back in the spending mood (which Essen is also all about...)

New edition of TTA, one of my favorite games !

Update: French version confirmed for 60-65 €. That's a bit steep but, let's face it, I've already purchased Deluxe versions of games which I rate lower. So, after evaluation of the rules updates (apparently there will be changes on corruption, sacrifices and rebalancing at least) and new components, I'll decide on what to do

Update 2: For the moment, the rule changes are convincing so I'll most probably buy this new version.

Update 3: French version should be released sometime in November so not so long after Essen

Status: Probable buy, in French so after Essen

Quests expansion, bringing quests from the app to the boardgame

Update: Seems there is some text on the missions description so I'll buy the French version if Iello does it

Update 2: Iello as not decided yet (as announced on the TricTrac forum

Status: It seems to be very language dependent, I'll wait for Iello's decision.

Probably too early for Essen but I will pledge for this for sure (hoping that it's available separately from the Big Box)

Update: Pledged on Kickstarter for the expansion + stretch goals

Update 2: There is also a freebie character of Arno Quispel

Status: Essen pickup

Expansion for one of my favorite games !

Update: I asked to Ystari, they won't do the French version. It's really a pity to see more and more French publishers who abandon expansions for games they have translated earlier (especially when there's no change of publisher involved, like it happened between Ystari or Filosofia or Iello or Edge for some titles).

Update: Review on Opinionated Gamers was not so positive, review on Ludovox was more positive and lets me think that this will bring some interesting things to the game.

Pearl Games never disappointed me, however for some reason I'm less attracted by this one.

Nevertheless, I need to try it, hopefully at BGF.

Update: I played the game and it is really good with multiple ways to use cards and apparently multiple strategies (at least there are a few other ways to play that I'd like to try). And the theme is well integrated in the game. So Pearl Games has added yet another excellent game to their catalogue!

I got the chance to play it 4 times at the Brussels Games Festival and the game is excellent !

Very fluid, tense and the new mechanisms for 2 players work really good.

I even won a copy at the tournament so I'll get it at home when it's released but, as usual with Repos Prod, I expect there will be some goodies to grab.

Update: There will be goodies indeed, apparently a metallic military token and an additional wonder. I have to know how to get them.

Status: Get the goodies

Update: I read the rules, it seems a bit fiddly and I'm not sure this is really a game I would enjoy. Futhermore, there is a lot of text on the cards.
