Curious if any of you have ever had a game you liked that was completely replaced by something else. I'm not taking about a straight retheme or a second edition of something else. I personally can't think of any at the moment. But some that I've heard are :
War of the Ring replaced by Battle of the five armies.
Catan replaced by Machi Koro or Space Base.
Splendor replaced by Century: Eastern wonders...
Notice that these share some mechanics, sometimes. But mostly people get the same feeling from games that are doing the replacing plus something they like better.
