What Games Need a Second Edition?

Supporter

What games have you played that could really use a second edition for one reason or another?

This could be controversial, but #Terraforming Mars could use a second edition in my opinion. I don't remember having any problems with the gameplay, but the live artwork is horendous. The whole game looks terrible to me, and for that reason I wasn't able to enjoy the game. I'll definitely try it again if they put good artwork into the game, though

Agreed

That makes sense! Some of the clip art art on those cards were really bad

yeah, it was a huge turnoff for me

Supporter2 months ago

Totally!

No I agree here. Could you imagine a deluxe Terraforming Mars?? It would sell like crazy

A lot of the niche-ish war games that I've started looking into are cheaply made and look pretty dated. Just look at what happened when Pax Pamir got picked up and given a makeover, It took over the gaming world! 

I'd be happy if other Pax games get the same treatment, like Porfiriana (paging Mr lol) and Emancipation. Emancipation isn't too bad, but Porfiriana is damn ugly imo. I'm happy #John Company is getting a round two.

It's been on my mind lately that I'd like to see what #Castle Itter or #Pavlov's House might look like if Ian O'Toole got his hands on it and if they upped the retail price to print some nicer cards.

#Hansa Teutonica is hailed as the greatest euro game... but I can't put that ugly thing on my table! I'd also add #Caverna #Friday and #El Grande to the list.

Most of the old hailed great euros desperately need one, especially if it's out of print or still relevant today lol

I second all of these! haha

Hey, I sorta like how porf looks. LOL

Yes, I am eager to see John Company 2E. There is a very good chance I will back it.

I think that #Ethnos could really use a second edition! Better art and graphics for a start

I agree, every game could always use better art

I agree!  Although the art didn't bug me that much, I think more races and perhaps a modification of the blind drawing rule (so you always have a choice).

This is such a no brainer, it's like the first thing anyone says whenever this game is brought up, it's pretty much a meme at this point...

A kickstarter for a rebranded version would do so well! Maybe they're waiting for the stock of the first edition to dry up first.

Supporter2 months ago

that's true... I wonder if that's what they are waiting for

That would be so great for that game!

#Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig The text on the tiles should be bigger and easier to read-even with prescription glasses it can be difficult.

Would it be worth having less art on the tiles for you?

They should hire me to rework #Hotel Tycoon

I'd buy it for sure :)

Back in my day, it was called "Hotel"

Nice! I haven't played this one yet

Basically it is another take on the monopoly concept but less archaic.

the big cardboard buildings make up for the lack of table presence in monopoly too.

it's a silly and easy family game but it actually harbors a few concepts that could be some much more! That's why my son And I picked it out to flex his first game design muscles

Clearly you haven't played the digital implimentation of Monopoly with the 3d buildings LOL. Why I own this game on Xbox is beyond me.

haha no but I did play an old pc version back in the year 2000 and the bidding was absurd.

it featured sounds; ambient auction room sounds and a dude with the hammer uttering complete jibberish a la "takanana oh wee" . I still make the sound in oprder to incite laughs from my brother when something auction related comes up :D

That's not the best Monopoly memory I have though. I'm going to start a threat about that one!

 

Premium User2 months ago

That is hysterical! Can your thread PLEASE include a voice recording of you making that sound?!

Supporter2 months ago

Nice!

Well it already has a second edition but I'm gonna say #Dominion: Second Edition needs an art upgrade.  I just think it's totally unattractive to look at.

Dominion: Third Edition. Art by . I'm sold lol
