Below is an unboxing video I made of Mansions of Madness, 2nd edition.

I knew the game had an app component, however I did not understand that it was required!  I don’t think I’m too keen on that.  For me, part of the appear of board games is getting away from technology.

Still, I will give it a try.  It can be played as a single player only, which is nice because few of my friends are into Mythos.

When I went to Gen con in 2015, I made sure to hit the FF flight report.  It’s an iconic thing, at least in my world.  This is where Fantasy Flight reports on the state of the company, and the industry, to the fans.  It’s almost like a board game stock report for geeks.  And there is usually a surprise or two; there are announcements.

This year, the surprise announcement that I really liked is the Runewars Miniatures Game.   Also, FF is going forward with app driven games.  I played Descent with their new app; I think it has tremendous potential, especially for folks who like co-op games.

Video below is the announcement.  I guess to me the response was surprisingly tepid; but I wasn’t there and it’s hard to tell.

Having just put 40k on the shelf, I’m happy to give this a try as a replacement.
