...that's cool. You're welcome to your opinion. I happen to like the art.

I think we can all at least agree that Coup is an awesome game.

We should get a Black Box edition with different art! That will reduce the number of complaints.

Do you know how hard it is to design ALL NEW ARTWORK FOR FIVE CARDS and then print three copies each? I don't think there's a single game publisher short of FFG or Hasbro capable of doing this without losing their house.

Agreed!

As I posted to the box art picture:

Quote:
Artwork is great! With all of the fan made versions of this game that are out there I don't see what all the fuss is about. I mean if it is loyalty to the original theme that is cool but it's not like the original is unavailable. There is also the French version in the works that some like over this The Resistance version. Really there is enough of a selection for everyone to be satisfied. It's simple... buy the one you like.

Meanwhile... I'll be in the Penthouse with the Contessa!


I think people know that IB&C produces top notch stuff! As such I think that some were hoping that they would go in a different direction to expand their offerings. I think that some are feeling that this is just more of the same. Frankly I think that the 'same' has been fantastic! When you have such a wildly popular product it only behooves you to continue engaging a huge fan base with new offerings. Think Catan, Munchkin, and others. It just makes... Business sense! And it's obvious that Travis and IB&C have it. What is more, this is actually a great game. Or so I've heard. I'm backing it without playing and making my first purchase of The Resistance.

My only request is that we get more of The Resistance: Avalon type role card promos for The Resistance. The art looks great in The Resistance: Avalon. I just avoid demon looking stuff around the kids.

Great work Travis and team!!!

Coup's good! It isn't as good as Resistance, but it's good! You'll like it. (It's also very easy to "make your own" while you wait, btw.)

It's a good thing that I will be getting both then. I'm hoping that we will get some cool tokens with the IB&C version of Coup. We already know that we will not be getting metal coins but just the fact that Travis and team counted the cost there.... Get's me excited to see what improvement they are going to make in that component.

If the first edition does run out, I gather the upcoming Japanese copy will use the original artwork.

I was going to post on this...

Great it's getting a reprint (great game) but don't see tie into resistance and think art is very poor.

Good luck to Indie but personally I think it weakens the resistance franchise too.
