The New Games d’jour

Ristorante Italiano is a point salad game that, for the life of me, I can’t call a JASE despite that fact that it probably is one. You get 24 actions total, so make them count. Indifferent+, probably a suggest for another time or two. (We played with five, probably better with 4).

X:Com may or may not be terrible, but I’m a hater. No rule book? Rules only via App? Avoid.

Otherwise just played more Race, Beisbol, and King of New York. Good times.

Still, the initial feedback from haters was ‘I refuse to play this because there are no rules available’, FFG listened to that feedback, and released a full set of the rules.

        Why exactly does this make them bad, when they respond to criticism by fixing things?
