With the overwhelming success of the genre('Androind: Netrunner' in particular), I think we can safely say that LCGs are here to stay. So what do you think should be the next universe(or 'Galaxy Far, Far Away...') that should be turned into an LCG and why?

Guess I'll start first.

Star Trek-An obvious choice. Exploration, combat, diplomacy, this game could have it all!

Twilight Imperium-Very rich universe with innumerable stories that could be told. You could even have two ways to fight in this game: ground combat and fleet combat.

Shin Megami Tensei-Tons of source material with this one and it would, obviously, be much darker than all the other LCGs.

Warhammer 40,000-They already have so many other games that take place in this universe, an LCG seems almost inevitable.

Anima: Beyond Fantasy-One of FFG's less popular universes, but I absolutely love it! With all the different characters, locations, and powers already in the lore there is tons of material for this one.

Stargate-All I can really say about this one is 'Please? Please? Pleasepleaseplease?'

If I were FFG I would be somewhat concerned about new LCGs cannibalizing their existing LCGs. No sense in paying out the arse for a Star Trek LCG license if the consumer sees it as having to stop playing another LCG to start up with a new one.

Agreed Fightcitymayor, but if they get the release timing correct I'm sure a lot of people would be happy to play more than one LCG at a time. Unlike CCG's where you are also stuck trying to chase more cards all the time, the LCG's give a player a bit more flexibility in the cost and release schedule, not to mention I can relax once I've bought the pack I want.

However, there is always that less controllable and flexible cost of time to play the games. It's hard to know how much more room is out there for another LCG simply because of this reason, but I don't think we are at saturation point just yet.

I also agree that there is only so much card game people can handle (and I personally like to mix it up with game types).

ok, here's some ideas for a new LCG without any licensing or franchise issues (although I love Trek, isn't it already pretty much done? overdone, even?) and which may open the door to new gamers not already enticed by existing themes:

-old west theme
-civil war theme
-submarine cat and mouse in the deep blue
-jewel/bank heists, a la Ocean's 11, the Pink Panther Strikes Again, et al.
-viruses
-codebreaking
-lawyers, guns, and money (i have no idea what design could be based on this but i've always thought this song lyric really conveys deep, deep, deep trouble)
-1930's gangsters
-pirates (possibly overdone already)
