FFG Next to Go Down the Tubes?
For the record, I'm a huge FFG fan, and I have bought almost every board game they've put out in the past year. However, my reaction to their latest announcement is a giant, "Yikes!"
I suppose from a business perspective, diversification can be a good thing, but, apparently just moving from board games to poker games was the downfall of Eagle Games. Will producing B-movies be the downfall of FFG? I'm no Roger Ebert, but to me these clips look like they grabbed a bunch of LARPers at a Con and started filming. At least they remembered to include many of the old fantasy film standbys like the mean looking orc; the pretty but sad elf maiden, etc. What do you all think?
Maybe I should go ahead and pick up my just-in-case-it-goes-out-of-print copy of Britannia sooner rather than later... In the mean time I'm keeping my fingers crossed they don't decide to give Twilight Imperium 3 the B-movie treatment...
