I wonder if most people will use the new special power tiles and alternate scoring?

Amazing! I'm not a big fan of the game (sold my Mayfair copy, actually), but I'm very curious to see what FFG will do with it, regarding art and components. I've always thought it would look great with plastic buildings, but I will not be surprised if it also has miniatures for the leaders.

So I'm going to have to buy a third edition?

(I already have the two Mayfair editions, their first and the one with the better map artwork and the double sided board).

Pretty clever of them to re-theme it to Star Wars. Yavin and Endor, coming in 2015.

I hope they won't mess this one up like they did with Beowulf: The Movie Board Game and Kingdoms. I mean "ameritrash" flavors to a perfect game. In form of "special power" tiles, "action cards", "special decks with text" or whatever.

/whoosh


Well, I don't think that was well-signposted. Particularly as compared to the original Hans im Glück version there were some options added in the Mayfair version, not quite as you describe, but I wondered if you meant those. Which it is up to FFG to indicate if present.

I think that you can be pretty sure nothing will be messed up as you describe. Even if only because of the work involved (though I don't think that would be the only reason).

Also interesting is the Euro Classics logo. I wonder if they've got a whole new line planned.

Christopher,

Any idea if this will have the Ziggerats and/or the two player board?

I know the answer to that, but I'm afraid I don't have either Reiner's or FFG's permission to discuss anything at the moment. Sorry. Yes, that's possibly over-cautious, but people trust me because I am.

(I'll stretch a point and note that this is absolutely and definitely real. Not I think that anyone was in doubt about that.)

Looks like it. (That's not from inside information.)

I hope they publish some of the currently out of print real classics and don't devalue the brand with weaker material. Of Knizia games, the obvious candidate would be Ra, but again note I'm speculating. Not quite a classic, but Blue Moon City would be a nice tie-in with Blue Moon Legends. But there are quite a few real classics to consider, several being Knizias, many not. (Is El Grande in print?)

Odds that FFG screws this up by changing something basic, or cramming in some new rule that nobody wanted nor asked for?

Not currently, though Hans im Gluck has suggested a new run in 2015.

Would be nice to see FFGs level of components for some of these older games, spruce them up a bit; add a few screen flares and a triple sword hand guard thing a ma jig
