The years following the release of Dominion brought on a slew of Deck Builders. Some have survived, while others have fallen by the wayside and gone out-of-print. One of the later is Nightfall. Considering the amout of ink Nightfall recieved on this site, I would have never predicted that Nightfall would be the AEG Deckbuilder to fade away, while Thunderstone (which is close in age to Nightfall), has evolved and still continues to be supported.
Nightfall's Chaining* mechinism felt so innovative and exciting at the time. Although it was a bit fiddly and resolving it was a bit complicated. Perhaps the audience for Deck Builders is an audience that is looking for liter games, as it seems that the successful Deck Builders of recent years, like Machi Koro and the DC Deck Builder, have been simpler rather than more complex. Or maybe the release of Nightfall on iOS which made the game so easy to play killed off the card board version.
Whatever the reason, it seems to have fallen so out of favor that despite being out of print you can still pick up new copies for half the original price: Nightfall on Amazon
What do you think? Love it or hate it? Do you still play it?
