Short Cut to Remote Gaming Forum (29 Aug 2020)
Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.
What PURCHASES are you RESISTING?
It's less about getting something in return as it is having them develop some sort of uniform business etiquette.
BTW - I did glue the piece back on, and it was a PITA.
I think you should contact the company privately. I am sure they will offer you some kind of compensation.

WHY RESIST: I have 10 other deckbuilders with 50 other expansions, so do I really need another one? Plus, the Steam version is nice and I can even play hotseat with my kids.
WHY GIVE IN: I love the "you win" card. And it's only $27 for the base and the expansion!.
I grabbed a copy of this used for $10 recently, and it's totally fine. It adds exactly 2 things to Star Realms. The things are neat and fun, but if you have Ascension or especially Star Realms I don't know how much you need Shards too.
Plus, I could always just add more to one of the other series I have and not need to learn a new rule set.
M.U.L.E for the Atari 800 was one of the best computer games ever, back when the field was relatively new. I have a setup for playing it on my laptop, and talking about it makes me want to drag the laptop off to my brother's place for the Fourth.

M.U.L.E. the boardgame, not so much. As a boardgame, it's kind of dull, and runs kind of long. It doesn't do anything that Power Grid doesn't do better, except be M.U.L.E. I was tempted just for that, but played it first. That immunized me.
I also expect that I will succumb to the siren call of the new edition of Dune, even though I bought the original edition 8 years ago for a reasonable price. It's just so pretty, and still one of the best board games ever published.
Sorry. I'd like to embed the image, but I can't seem to find an image hosting site that will work on this forum, after multiple attempts
