Hey, I know I am as excited for this game to release as the rest of you, but something seems off about the game; like the theme is pasted on or something. I hope shortly after we get the game that someone will come up with a rethemed variant... like from a book...

Maybe Dune, it has a bunch of factions with unique powers, and I heard there was a game of it before... yeah, a Dune retheme would work...

Nah, I meant Doom. Maybe there should be a Doom retheme of it.

This is getting ridiculous.

Does anyone on BGG actually not know why FFG had to retheme Dune into Rex?

If so, just search the Geek for "Frank Herbert estate " and all will be clear.

No, I'm pretty confident they know, and are just hoping that the snooty, hipsterish snark-whining will someday achieve critical mass and blow up the Herbert estate and they'll get their way.

Pity about the game though, with FFG's failure to get the Dune license I lost all interest in it. Not to mention I wasn't thrilled that they were doing the game in the first place.

It seems I'll have to make my own copy.
