Mission Command: Sea is one of my all time favorite games.

I absolutely adore it. The AIR game sucks. Great toy factor but the game itself isn't much fun. The LAND version isn't much better, but is slightly better than AIR. YMMV

To think people are arguing about the aesthetic of Cave Evil... my God look at Secret of the Lost Tomb... that is one of the ugliest boxes I've ever seen.

Still waiting for that great Indiana Jones style game. I've been thinking about getting Fortune and Glory, but still not sure.

Fortune and Glory ain't "that great Indiana Jones style game." The Adventurers is lighter than I would hope for a real IJ game, but it is a good game, at least.

Indiana Jones 5 is still likely to happen (Spielberg mentioned it the other day), and Disney will likely reboot it after Ford retires/dies... So I'm hoping the great game in that license may yet come. #galeforcenine

I have heard absolutely nothing positive about Fortune and Glory. Be wary.

Oh god, the first two words of the SotLT review.

"Everything Epic" is the name of the publisher. I know I'm a joyless crank, but this game would have to be farting previously unreleased Ultra Vivid Scene tracks for me to not put it back on the shelf at that sight.

I really think that Temple of Chac is the real deal Indiana Jonesing game.

Escape: Curse of the Temple is also a stupid fun game with a bit of Temple of Doom flair.

It's not as stupid as I first thought. Yes, there's basically a rolling mechanic and that's about it, but the decisions about how to work together and pushing your luck are huge.

Yes, and I'm a big fan of the expansions and how seamless you can tune the difficult for your group (we ride with every expansion and 2 extra gems).

The Mission Command games are fun for kids. I only played the Land one (reimplements Tank Battle, which I played a lot as a youth). Good nostalgic fun.
