I had no idea they weren't reprinting the CoC expansion. Did the base game not sell well?

Yeah, that makes me want to run out and buy both of them right now, despite the stupidity involved in that idea.

I can't believe they made a Thunderbirds game... what an odd property to turn into a game. It does sound cool though and I always dug the aesthetic on that show.

Get the CoC expansion if you like the game. It's already starting to sell for stupid money.

^yep, if you see it, grab it up you may not find it again. Depending on how you like your civ games, it has essential fixes. Many people didn't like the no-unit differentiation (I liked the single army type) and TONS of people were begging for unique civs to railroad you from the beginning (I'm meh on it). They're both implemented pretty well, ESPECIALLY the unique civs.

Incidentally, don't sleep on spending the 5 bucks on BGG store to get the Aztec civ promo. It's a solid complete civ w/leader cards and mini civ board. Not half-assed at all.

If Thunderbirds is definitely a Matt Leacock game, then that's a deal breaker for me. Pandemic is best enjoyed in the fireplace, keeping your family warm.

Level 99 is doing some of the most *cool* stuff out there. And they're not afraid of complexity, although of course that can be a double edged sword.

Seconding RESISTOR_. It's a neat little game.

RESISTOR_ sounds like it uses the mechanic from a game I just played (an Essen release) called Dark Matter.
boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/182101/dark-matter

Basically, it's a race for VP, taking over planets, but it's got that "you can't see the back of the cards" thing going, plus the cards are split lengthwise with each side doing something different. Essentially, each card is really 4 cards, of which you can only see two. Neat game. Very different.

Lego: If you get a chance to see Mr. Gray, ask him about this.

Damn. Crumbled and grabbed a copy of the CoC expansion while still could at retail prices.

Worst case you sell it for a huge profit. But I think if you like the game you'll keep it.

I've said it before, but it really does bear repeating:

Everyone gushing about Level 99 games really owes it to themselves to check out Pixel Tactics. It's a really stellar design, extremely replayable, and will only run you $10 or so on Amazon:

"Man, Steam is so much better when you aren't playing with a table of Mentats."

I have played it twice, with mentats, bought a copy, sat on it unplayed for five years, then traded it for Blue Moon Legends. Maybe I'll grab the iPad version and hope they add multiplayer one day.
