Hi, I know that this is a very generic question but I want to know if it is worth picking up the base game at this point or is there a '2nd edition' coming out soon?

I found it on sale on RightStuf.com for $95 and includes the following:

- Tanto Cuore
- Tanto Cuore: Expanding the House expansion
- Tanto Cuore 1-4 foil cards
- Tanto Cuore setup playmat

Is that a good deal? Should I wait? Should I get it? What are your thoughts?

So, if we ignore the foil cards & playmat which are simply add-ons, then I think the 2 boxes at that price are pretty much par for the retail course. It certainly doesn't look like a bargain to me.

I love the game though & would far prefer playing this to Dominion.

It's a reasonable price & you get some nice bling thrown in.
Not heard anything about any 2nd edition & I'd be surprised if there was.

I think the usual retail for each game is US$50 so I will let you make that value judgement.

But as to the other question, well the 5th game has only just been released which is the 2nd that Japanime provided the impetus for. And it is still a nice balanced system so I think we are far more likely to see a Tanto Cuore 6 rather than Tanto Cuore 2nd edition.

If the game looks interesting to you then I say get it.

Glad to see a new potential Tanto fan!

Personally, I think getting into a new game is always a good deal. That said, I think this would be great to jump on. But... we do have some stuff we're working on that might interest you.

What could those be? Well, we have a surprise we're working on for the 10th anniversary of Tanto. As well, while it isn't necessarily a "2nd Edition" we are working on switching over to higher quality boxes -- with the normal board game box style lids, rather than the flap over boxes (and we're planning on those being the same MSRP!!). whistle

Anyway, hope that helps! Hope you enjoy the game.
