"I plan on making Fort ubiquitous in game collections, by making the price 30 USD."

- Patrick Leder, https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2418054/article/34694931#34694931


Originally, I agreed about preferring SPQF and was keeping an eye on the used markets for it.  My wife was also interested in the original and was ok with me spending more on a used SPQF than to get Fort.

However, watching discussions on BGG about it, I'm favoring Fort.

  • Better theme integration, e.g. taking cards from your opponent isn't an abstract representation of how ideas spread but is instead your friends that you ignore lose interest and are being picked up by someone else.
  • Clearer iconography
  • Less confusing rule book / cards
