Games That Deserve a Reprint
Geek and Sundry has posted up a list of games they feel deserve a new edition. "Sometimes an out of print game will be picked up by a different publisher, or sometimes enough clamor for fans convinces someone to do a Kickstarter."
Santorini (Game Boy Geek): “Move your worker, build next to it, and try to get onto the 3rd level to win. Add cool God powers to make each game feel very different.
Menu Masters (Creaking Shelves): “Calliope have certainly succeeded in their aim here: Menu Masters is a totally accessible game that really shows off what modern board game design can do.”
Star Trek Panic (BoardGaming.com): “Star Trek Panic is easy to learn and fun to play as a group. Fans of Star Trek, especially the 1960s series, will love playing this game.”
