I was just about to post this link! Looks like you get the karma this time...

Such a great game. I'm so excited to get the expansion and it feels like Nov 22 is an eternity away!

Same! Did you order directly from Stonemaier or from a retailer?

I ordered from Cardhaus. There were a few other games I wanted as well.

Nice, yeah I ordered from Miniature Market. I hope there's not too much of a delay for retailers.

This is great! More coverage the better!

I am saddened that there was not really any attention paid to gameplay. That article could almost have been written about a exceptionally beautiful memory game. That being said, I do like seeing the coverage that gaming is getting as a result of Wingspan as well as other games.

Man, I'll tell you.  I really want to like the idea of this game and play it.  It is so beautiful.  But I just have no interest in a zero player interaction game.

Supposedly some of the cards in the new expansion add more player interaction. But either way, it's fine. We can't all like all games. Save your money for a game you're more interested in.

I agree, there will always be more games that are a better fit for you. It was like that for me with Pax Pamir 2 ed. Love the production side of things, the elegant design of the mechanics, and I get why it's acclaimed, but it's just not my preference (maybe that might change after I get more plays in, but I doubt it).

I enjoy Wingspan mostly because of how relaxing it is and giving some head space when I don't feel like hurting my brain on a thinkier game haha

I can see that.  I wish I had enough time for gaming to allow for those types of games.  Viticulture fills that for me a bit.  

I think this is how I feel about it.  I'm a musician and I share a lot of music with my musicians friends and they share stuff with me.  Whenever we don't like something that one of us sends we always say "I wish I liked it because you like it so much and I respect your opinion in music".  If that makes sense?

Makes sense to me! I totally understand your viewpoint.
