Re release theme
- Another excellent theme idea right up there with
Eddie's SdJ nite. Hase und Igel is one of my all time
Given the sheer volume of great games, I wouldn't
think it would be too hard to come up with a theme at
all. Just look at all the games that hit the table on
Sat. Nite. I don't think I saw a stinker in the bunch
and wanted to play all of them.
Back to the re-relese theme. Kings & Things was
rereleased late last year around Essen. I have played
this 3 or 4 times - it doesn't fit the german game
mold, but it is a fun if somewhat longish game.
Silverton was rereleased by Mayfair. Excellent train
game that will play short (2 hours) or long 6+ hours.
I saw the new Cosmic at Origins. They did an
excellent job on the components, a little overdone if
you ask me, but that is a minor point. They reduced
the number of alien powers to 20+, but the basic game
will be the same. Speaking with the AH guys, sounds
like expansions with more powers and the moons will be
in the future. For those with the old Cosmic sets -
either Eon or Mayfair - no need to get the new one
unless you just want to have, but AH will be be very
successful targetting this classic game (another in my
all time top 10) to a new audience.
