Between this and the HeroQuest nonsense...

 :2funny:

I have to agree with you on HQ. I sold my copy a few years ago...cool bits but it just wasn't very fun. I don't get why that needs a remake.

Sooooooooo stupid. Nostalgia for a ridiculous price! Ignore the seven billion other dungeon crawlers out there, all of which are better!

And that's if you're not in Canada, where the shipping alone is $135 US. No, I did not accidentally add a digit. Laughable.

Exactly why I didn't buy in on that 'Return to Dark Tower' nonsense.

Really? We are putting Carrier Battle: Philippine Sea in the same category as HeroQuest?  ::)

Yours arrived?

That's awesome! Mine hasn't come yet...I'd never been charged, so I told sales@ about it, and they sent me a PayPal invoice, which I took care of...then silence.

I may be showing the first significant signs of age-related cognitive decline. A few nights ago I was hemming and hawing about putting in an order for this game but decided to wait a bit.

Today I'm sitting on the couch watching a YouTube vid about some dude repairing an Amstrad CPC464, when the postman knocked on my door and handed me a parcel that was heavier than it looked...

I'll get Starfury right on it- I hear he's almost done with that Panthers in the Fog review... or was it Tigers in the Mist?
