Hey, I'm actually pretty excited about this! I've played a ton of Through the Ages in 2019 (mostly through the app, but some F2F) and I think more content would be great.

Looks like this will be exactly what it says on the box, new leaders and wonders. I think that's just about right. I hope they take a light touch with new mechanics.

@Nate
I thought of you when I saw this. Through the Ages one of the games you brought with you, wasn’t it?

I actually bought it and had it delivered to my parents, then brought it back in my suitcase when I went to the US for meetings earlier this year. That's what devotion to a game looks like!

I'm so excited about this. It'll also give me a reason to play the physical version again instead of the phenomenal app.

The app is outstanding, but I feel like I miss the physicality of the actual game. I think I actually play better in person too, since I tend to think about what I'm doing a bit more.

Both Through the Ages and Twilight Struggle (another great app) are more enjoyable in person for me. I actually think that when I play the app exclusively for a long time it lowers my enjoyment of the design. Getting in front of a real person helps immensely.

The beta for this is real fun. Cant wait for the actual release. Definitely my most anticipated thing this year.

I play way better in person too. Something about my automatic carelessness in the electronic format bc the stakes feel extra low. I wonder if it's be different if I played any of the games people play competitively (DOTA, League, Overwatch, etc).

trailer, release date, shows some new cards etc. having played the beta a lot i gotta say its hard to go back to playing without it. super excited for this still.

also, i definitely lose focus playing async as well. especially if i start more than a couple games and try to juggle them. the tradeoff being it really sharpens your ability to read the gamestate effectively at a glance either in person or in the app.

I'm excited. I generally have about a dozen async games going at any one time in the app.

Same as here. Warning: despite playing constantly I am not good at the game. And unlike the others, I also suck in F2F games.
