Thunder Road Reboot Announced by Restoration Games
Restoration Games has announced that it will be rebooting the 1986, Mad Max inspired board game Thunder Road as Thunder Road Vendetta.
Picked this up out of the Spielnacht von Mittwoch guild.
I will say that this is a design worth bringing back and adding a little bit to, this is a great choice.

Could Battlemasters be next? I wonder how well the Heroquest rerelease is doing as I imagine a lot of these type games appeal to a similar audience.
Same with games, these simplistic roll and move type games get added complexity to appeal to adults rather than children.
Its a tough market. It was pretty easy for a plastic laden but overall kinda bad game to compete with atari and cga graphic computer games back in the day. But now....whoa! A board game needs a lot of help or direct parental involvement like a strict "no video games day" for it to gets kids IMHO. Thus the game needs to be at least somewhat fun for the adult as well, hence the added complexity.
$50 game. More than that is money spent on a wish.
