Dragonmother - Pretty and very buildy! I love it. It’s a straight forward game and it’s fun.
Randrac- I really enjoyed the original version of this game. This new version is certainly pretty, but they stripped out much of the gameplay that made the game fun, presumably to try and appeal to a wider audience. Given that this is a Kickstarter premium edition of the game that is mostly going to appeal to fans of the original, this seems like a really odd choice. Granted; there are expansions in the box that will hopefully make this more like the original, but one of my big pet peeves is when someone releases a new version of a classic game and decides to “improve” it without providing the capability of playing it by the original rules. I will stick with my old version, thank you very much.
