GW's Dark Future - a little advice

Ok, so it may not be a 'classic' to some, but like I've mentioned in another post it's the number one game I wish I hadn't gotten rid of.

There's a decent copy sitting on ebay that I'm looking at. However, there are a bunch of new games I'd like to get as well. I'm the only one in my current group that will consider painting minis, so I'd have to do all the work, but that's ok. I know it won't get the table time I'd like, but damn if I didn't have fun tricking up matchbox cars in the past, and that Carl Critchlow is my favorite of all game art.

The game itself is pretty clunky and requires some serious house rules. Particularly, involving more than 2 players.

Anyway, the reason I'm posting this is because I've never bought a board/mini game a second time that I previously owned (I've done this with rpgs, but those never get played anyway. Fun reads, though!). So, those of you that have tracked down and bought a game a second time, was the magic there? Did you get the play time out of it you hoped? Did it end up getting pushed to the back because of new and shiny games?

What are the experiences of those on F:AT?

Admins - I'm sorry, can this be moved down to the tabletop/minis section?

Thanks!

Done.

Remember rebuying a game earns you extra points in Steve's manchild quiz.

I'm a sucker for old games. I have a whole passal of GW stuff that I picked up to recapture "The Glory Days." The thing is, it can be every bit as great as it once was if everyone buys into it... Thats a mighty big if. Its like seeing a B movie. Your friend is constantly commenting "Wow this sucks!" while you just want to enjoy seeing the creature from the black lagoon thrash about.

I say, if you love it -get it. Who needs friends when you can surround yourself in old games.

Hey, Jack.

Since I've been poking around with Inquisitor, I went to the Specialist Games section to meander about. Lookie at what I found.

Dark Future, freely downloadable

I've not checked it out to see what's part of it, but if you're truly itching for your set at least you won't have to pay an arm and a leg for it.
