This is a series of polls I am putting together for a GeekList.

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/34219

Please head over there, vote, and add comments.

If you would like to post your own poll on that geeklist, feel free to use this thread to create the poll (as there is no way to do it directly in GeekLists that I know of).


Poll
What level of communication do you expect from FFG on upcoming products?
1) I want to know everything! Every date, every setback, everything!
2) I want to know what is coming out and a fairly accurate date of when it will be available
3) I just want a general outline of the direction with loose dates (years, quarters, months as the time approaches) with periodic updates on progress
4) Let me know a few months out what can be expected so I can budget and get excited about the upcoming release
5) I don’t want to know anything until the items hit the shelves
6) Other (please elaborate below)

Re: Test Polls for a GeekList
Poll: Question 2: Vision
Whose vision should reign in the future of BattleLore?
1) It is necessary for FFG to fully embrace the DOW vision or I won’t support the game any longer
2) DOW established the game and FFG must respect the foundation that was built; new concepts can be introduced only if they keep it in the context of that foundation
3) It needs to be a blend of the DOW vision and the FFG vision
4) FFG purchased the game and it is their right to do what they want but I want to know it is the same game
5) It is necessary for FFG to fully reject the DOW vision or I won’t support the game any longer
6) Other (please elaborate below)

Re: Test Polls for a GeekList
Poll
What theme should BattleLore grasp?
1) This is a fantasy game and there is no room for historical constraints
2) The system works best as a blend; the historical background should be the inspiration but fantasy elements should replace their historical counter parts (for example, how the Dwarves became Scotsmen in BattleLore: Scottish Wars)
3) There is room for both games in this system but they need to be kept separate as much as possible (for example, the separation of BattleLore: Goblin Marauders Specialist Pack vs. BattleLore: The Hundred Years' War – Crossbows & Polearms) to allow players to purchase exactly what they want
4) This is a historical game and there is no room for fantasy elements
5) Other (please elaborate below)

Re: Test Polls for a GeekList
Poll
What is the future of Uchronia?
1) This world held promise and FFG needs to get creative writes on it right now
2) The concept was interesting but time and energy do not need to be allotted to it; let the world get fleshed out with flavor text and scenario notes
3) BattleLore needs a universe and FFG has plenty to choose from; set this in a world previously established in an FFG game (please indicate which game below)
4) Forget about a universe and just focus on making expansions
5) Other (please elaborate below)

Re: Test Polls for a GeekList
Poll: Question 6: Exclusives
How should exclusives be handled?
1) Exclusive figures add excitement to the game and increase the value of my collection: Issue more exclusives!
2) Chase figures should be made available as a reward to convention attendees, demoers, or FLGS owners but components should be made available for download/purchase at a later date
3) The original promise should be kept: No exclusives. Period! Equal opportunity for everyone at reasonable prices
4) Other (please elaborate below)

Re: Test Polls for a GeekList
Poll: Question 7: Past Exclusives
How should previous exclusives (Hill Giant, Earth Elemental, and to a certain extent the Troll) be handled?
1) Break the mold! I got mine and they increase the value of my collection; Don’t reissue these figures
2) Release the hounds! DOW screwed the pooch on this one; FFG needs to offer these as individual blisters and allow anyone to purchase what they missed out on (and not force the owners of these creatures to repurchase them in other expansions)
3) The more the merrier! Put them all together in one package and release them as a creature expansion
4) Other (please elaborate below)

Re: Test Polls for a GeekList
Poll
When should Heroes be released?
1) Immediately, we have waited long enough (during 2008); this should be the first FFG expansion
2) As soon as FFG gets settled, they can release it when they see fit (early part of 2009); it doesn’t have to be the first FFG release but one of the first would be nice
3) FFG needs to go back to the drawing board and rework this to their visions (???); I don’t care if a Heroes expansion ever comes out
4) Other (please elaborate below)

Poll: Question 10: Presentation

Re: Test Polls for a GeekList
Poll: Question 11: Mood
Should BattleLore become armies of darkness?
1) I play this game with my kids and it needs to remain family-friendly and whimsical
2) I prefer the light-hearted nature of the races but understand that some new races may take a darker turn
3) I would like darker races but I want them to get the comical treatment of the previous sculpts
4) I always thought the game would grow darker as it expanded, let it take its natural course
5) I want this game to turn darker; it has been an insult to fantasy with these goofy characters
6) Other (please elaborate below)

Re: Test Polls for a GeekList
Poll: Question 12: Richard Borg
How involved should Richard Borg remain?
1) FFG bought the rights; they should make it their own and exclude Richard from the process
2) FFG should assign an internal manager and only consult Richard on the big items
3) FFG and Richard need to work together where Richard supplies the ideas but FFG shapes it into their vision (presumed DOW model)
4) FFG should only coordinate publishing, sequencing, and other services and allow Richard to submit expansions as he sees fit
5) The C&C system is Richard’s and he needs to be fully involved in every decision
6) Other (please elaborate below)

Re: Test Polls for a GeekList
Poll: Question 13: How does this make you feel?
In general, how do you feel with FFG at the helm?
1) FFG is the perfect fit: this should have happened in the beginning
2) I think FFG has what it takes to steer the ship right: this was a good move
3) I am optimistic but cautious: careful what you wish for
4) This wasn’t what I wanted: I’ll go with the flow, though
5) This is horrible: DOW needs to cancel the deal before it is too late
6) Other (please elaborate below)
