I suspect that Chrononauts has fired Time Agent.

We did small stakes bidding on Epic Duels and banned Yoda and Palpatine.

I’m sure that if I still went out to play games like that, Shadespire would be an All-Nighter.

I'm ok with Ben Affleck playing Batman. At least there will be a better director on set.

A game you accidentally play all night. I have no better way to describe it. Someone would put a game out as a filler and it would cause such a fuss that everyone would just want to take turns at it and would be completely content to watch when it wasn’t their turn to play.

I always called them event games. I had no better way to describe them. People just spontaneously gather around because whomever is playing at the time is just having such obscene fun.

I've seen this effect with Rattlesnake. A dumb kids game just exploded in epicness and then next Saturday we're having rattlesnake tournaments.

I think Dark Tower could be significantly updated and turn out OK. I think the brand is stronger than the game, and with apps replacing onboard electronics, there’s a lot of potential there to do something cool. Maybe something that is more of a “spiritual sequel” kind of thing than a reprint. Because the game is really kind of crap...the experience, atmosphere, and absurdity of it were what made it unique.
I agree completely.
Epic Duels, TBH I never understood the fanaticism about. It’s fun, it’s easy, and OMG Mace Windu versus Darth Vader. But the gameplay was never particularly impressive or interesting to me.
I disagree completely.

There has been some chatter around them and Time Agent, of all things...

Epic Duels will probably not be SW for obvious reasons.

I seriously doubt Time Agent. I talked with Tom Lehman about it at the TTN conference in Utah, and he gave no indication, and felt the design was way behind the times. I really pushed for a rework of Fast Food Franchise, and he gave a similar response - just too much to be done.

Ah, that's a shame. Personally (and at a glance) it seems the issue with the game is not so much the design but that it's a 6-player, 3-hour plus design. I don't think there's a big market for those anymore, sadly.

Have you ever talked with him on Ludology? Would be interesting, he is very opinated and that would be interesting.

Those old TimJim/Prism games were clunky but really sort of ahead of their time. They kind of fell in between the waning of the Avalon Hill era and Settlers of Catan. I think I’ve played all of them...Fast Food Franchise is awesome, I think that’s the best one. Would love to see someone bring that back.
