Good News and Bad News

by Susan Rozmiarek

Today I made my weekly Friday foray into town to catch up with old friends and run my errands. After a boring week of trying to ignore revival attempts of discussions flogging dead horses on BGG*, I'm unplugged from the internet on the day that the real interesting news is announced. Both are from companies that already receive a steady steam of our gaming dollars. Shoot, they probably should have their own categories in our budget software. Anyway, here is the news that you've probably already read about:

Exciting, earth-shattering Good News: Fantasy Flight Games has gotten the rights to most of the old Games Workshop Games.

<beg>Please, please, puh-leeeeeeeese publish a new, gussied-up version Dungeonquest!!!!!!!</beg>

Enough said.

Not unexpected Bad News: Days of Wonder is increasing its prices. I think I read somewhere recently that Rio Grande raised some of their prices as well. Sigh. We all knew this was coming and combined with other companies' price floor policies we are really going to have to get even pickier with our purchases. Oh, well. We have plenty of games to play.

*Ah the first sign of Spring - a Gathering of Friends discussion posted to stir up controversy. Then there is the good, old standby - AT vs. Euros. Do people ever get tired of these topics? Fortunately, neither has spiraled out-of-control. Yet.

Oooo... a new version of Dungeonquest?! With expansions?! Oh, how cool would that be.

There goes more of my gaming money. Sigh.

You forgot to mention your ruthless, devastating victory in a 4 player game of Manhattan.
