Forgive me if this is not the correct sub-forum... But no information or activity exists on this game's page, and this forum seems to be for information well as recommendations, plus I don't want it to be lonely and unseen on the game's page:

I was curious as to why there is limited information and NO buzz or page activity for an Essen 2016 release ** Around The World In 80 Days ** ?

Around the World in 80 Days

I realize that it's not a "sexy" game or a brain-burner, but it should be a solid Family game, since it is a reimplementation of Hare & Tortoise, the initial SDJ winner.

Hare & Tortoise

I was just wondering if anyone had some info on this release, or any ideas as to why a game like this would get absolutely no "Love".

Edit: Included BGG Links. duh...

Forgive me... I'm not proficient on inner-workings of BGG. Where do you see 25 geeklists?

I see that 52 people have it on their Wishlist...but little info on page and no discussion for a solid family game with an award-winning pedigree, that is coming out in a few weeks. I don't see much else, and was hoping for more info.

It's under the "More" submenu in the tabs.

There was some lively discussion when Hare & Tortoise was (briefly) renamed to Around the World in 80 Days.

OK....... I'm not sure what asking about extremely old "Mass Market" games has to do with information about a new release that reimplements a SDJ winner?

But sure...

I didn't see that discussion... Link?

Briefly? I thought the new IELLO release was called Around the World In 80 Days?

Tales & Games: The Hare & the Tortoise

It doesn't appear to be

You're right! A better title and reimplementation of this game would definitely be:

Cthulhu & Zombies.

What was IELLO thinking.shakewhistle
