the news
Quote:
Today, FFG and SG jointly announce that FFG will proceed to publish its new edition of Merchant of Venus, while SG's version of the game will be cancelled. SG will act as a consultant on FFG's version of the game, bringing some of SG's creative vision to the final release.

"This was a difficult and confusing situation," said Christian T. Petersen, CEO of Fantasy Flight Games. "All parties involved clearly had the best intentions in mind for the game, and none sought to cause damage to the other company. After a period of discussion and discovery, I'm thrilled that all parties now have clarity on the situation. I want to express my gratitude to WOTC for their assistance in this matter, and especially to Stephen Buonocore, the President of Stronghold Games, who has been both professional and practical in untangling this issue."

"While this was an unfortunate situation for all parties, everyone is a winner in the end," said Stephen M. Buonocore, President of Stronghold Games. "Fantasy Flight Games and Stronghold Games have forged a great bond that will last long after this event. In the face of crisis, Christian Petersen was a true leader who worked tirelessly to resolve the matter, and I am very thankful to him for that. The WOTC team was also instrumental in getting this done smoothly, and they too should be lauded. And above all, gamers worldwide are the biggest winners, since they will have this great game back in print, published by a great company, Fantasy Flight Games."

FFG is planning to release its new version of Merchant of Venus in Fall 2012. The new edition will feature both the classic game design by Richard Hamblen, as well as an updated game inspired by the original, designed by FFG's Rob Kouba. Stronghold Games is in discussion with Richard Hamblen with regard to other game designs, both old and new ones, which they hope to publish in 2013.

yang streamlined yang mana yang 'luas' yang mana?

aspek yang paling penting sih sebenernya player interaction. Mana yang lebih banyak? (dan mana yang lebih sadis?)

Also.. Sky Traders jelas downtime-nya bermasalah (makanya make limit 2 menit per turn) tapi kayaknya setupnya gak repot.

Kelihatannya Exploration di MoV lebih kerasa banget dan untuk sementara ini gua lebih favor MoV ketimbang Sky Traders. tapi gua agak ragu ama setup dan bookkeepingnya deh. Apakah nantinya bakal fiddly?

Pada dasarnya sih gw ga terlalu mempermasalahkan setup dan bookkeepingnya. Tapi karena gw yang beli, sebagai game owner yang pertama kali baca rulesnya selain gw harus setup, ngajarin, selama main pasti gw jadi book keeper yang monitor gamenya. Awal2 main pasti bakal overwhelming banget kalo setup dan bookkeepingnya bermasalah.

Kalo pernah maen game Freelancer PC dan suka, teorinya pasti suka MoV. Menurutku ini good news sih, meski jadi lebih mahal, but it's 2 in one game. Aku selalu suka jika FFG reprint dan includekan orinya.
