Purchasing and Porting
I’m almost certainly ordering Cornucopia (despite my general reaction) since I play Dominion with TaoLing. So the real question is — what else am I ordering?
- Mimsy Exotica Expansion — Almost Definitely
- Rallyman — Intrigued
- Yggdrasi — I’d like to try it, but probably not a blind purchase
- Fighting Formations — I’m just now getting back into Combat Commander. I don’t need another WWII squad level game (even with tanks). But I’d like to play it and I’ll admit I’m tempted.
- Troyes — I fear the JACE in this one. Try first.
In other news: I haven’t really been following the FFG vs Puffin Software (Summary — the game uses the Command and Colors Mechanics but has apparently been careful not to use copyrighted text/images & trademarks). I know that some videogame podcast actually discussed the legal issues with a lawyer. As for how I feel, it depends on the answer to: Did they ask Richard Borg for his blessing? (They did approach FFG).
I just saw a Time’s Up app for iPhone this week. (Built in timer, name lists, scoring). If I owned a device I’d probably spring for it, just because it handles the bag cleanly. No idea if it’s authorized, although I imagine it is (since it uses the name. Actually, I don’t know that).
Anyway — Open thread in two parts. 1) What should I buy? 2) Porting games to iDevices — how do you feel about knockoffs?
