  1. Oh, figured you didn't. Reading some of the facebook groups and other forums, you'd have thought it was the end times.
  2. If it's anything like destiny was, FFG said the first couple of print runs were already in based on vendor pre-orders and overall interest/reception at preview events. They always run conservative at first unfortunately. I think it's funny people are losing their shit over FFG/Asmodee direct preorders being shipped and people getting the product a few days early compared to the TC subs (whome are not a local store for most of the people using them). I spoke with my LGS and I'll have a copy waiting even if they get allocated. Have to decide on the Dark Tower kicstarter tonight. I've wanted a replacement for years, but this is just different enough from the original for me to be leary. I'll probably cave sometime tomorrow afternoon.
  3. Dark Tower - I really want to back it. Loved that game as a kid and I really want to play this. I just know it's all or nothing on this one. It'd be an easier choice if I just hadn't backed Car Wars which I'm kinda regretting now. WIth it being in lin ewith the cost of the vintage set in working order, I probably should just suck it up and get on board. Destiny getting sacked really sucks, but I get one last trip to MN for worlds. My local players are split between keeping their stuff and still playing (it really is a good game) or rage selling which they will likely regret at some point. It'll be intereting to see how many of FFG's Star Wars properties make it through 2020. Marvel Champions continues to be great. I'm looking forward to the monthly additions to this game as we go into the spring.
  4. oh wow... Attack from Mars is my favorite machine. I'll be curious if this translates well.
  5. Check amazon, there's a whole slew of product in this category starting at about $30.
  6. Which is what most people were expecting. Really looking forward to these releases this spring. Very sad about the FFG layoffs. Hope those people find good homes elsewhere. Also hope we get some announcements about the game lines in the wake of all the recent product delays compounded with this.
  7. Went to a learn to play event for Marvel Crisis Protocol and I'm all in on this game. With Imperial assault skirmish essentially finished in a couple of months, I had been looking at either Waehammer40k Killteam or Legion skirmish as a replacement. It feels like a much streamlined Legion, which I really like. Terrain will be a headache to store, but found some great recomendations with some O scale railroad building that'll work great for the game. Marvel Champions continues to be excellent. Will be teaching my wife ewer New Years.
  8. Got my Captain America and Ms Marvel yesterday. Distributor mesed up their order and didn't get Green Goblin packs in yet but they should be on the way still. If so, great, if not, February isn't far away. Wife was looking at Cthulhu Death may Die. Anyone have a go at this?
  9. Shellac in march. Looking forward to attending a show at your venue since we missed Brainerd a few weeks back.
  10. The most reasonable speculation I've seen is Black Widow, Dr Strange, and the Hulk. Black WIdow would make sense, getting the hero pack out to somewhat coincide with the movie. I've been reading much griping about a lack of villains packs. Wouldn'r be surprised if something pops up between WRecking Crew and the new box set. And if not, I'm behind on Arkham so I'm ok with that.
  11. A friend was complaining that his hdr feed was too dark as well, I didn't ask him id he had that issue with any other source material. I was only watching the regular feed and all the issues i think i had can be blamed on my horrible tv. Really enjoyed the episode. If the rest of the season matches the quality of this episode I'll be pretty happy. I have spoken.
  12. Yea. I played at a launch event yesterday. 4 player groups, which was really fun, but took a long time as we were constantly referencing the rules guides. We barely squeaked out a win. I'll definitely be staying on top of releases for this game.
  13. Longevity is certainly a concern with that title. It's probably as much an engine to get people to rebuy pop sculpts in a slightly different size. The Netrunner I'm looking for is the CCG. I completed my LCG set this fall. Those last few data packs were a beast to track down. Damage and threat tokens ordered. I may end up having to get his Arkham tokens as well.
  14. Picked up Champions - probably buying some Aurbits tokens to go with it (silly blinging out a ame, but hey, why not). Almost walked out with one of the Funko Verse games. It looked pretty good at GenCon, kinda like a streamlined Imperial Assault. Decided restraint was needed. Joey, I'd be curious if that store has any Netrunner (Wizkids version) laying around.
  15. Apparently some stores have been given early release copies of the Marvel LCG and permission to sell a week early. My local Gaming Goat should have it on Friday. Speaking of which. It's kinda funny to hear so much praise for the franchise, as they have a pretty poor rep in the Chicago area, especially the suburbs I live in where the first stores opened. Still, while I understand supporting your LGS, especially ones that put on events, 20-30% off everyday is too good to pass up. Just makes me miss my local store that had all my Star Wars games at 40% all the time. Games were not his main product. I think he just like having star wars merch for sale and didn't care what his margin was.
