There are a lot of games in the world, and I'm willing the overlap people people who play First Edition and people who play lots of games is high. We're in a great era of video games, board games, and other tabletop games. Today's question is about things you like from those other games.
What concepts (mechanics, rules, components) would you like to see 1E "import" from other games?
This is a vague and broad question by design, but I'm curious what answers you'll have. Obviously, the closer in scope and nature to First Edition, the better. It's easier to import a mechanic from Magic that it would be from Monopoly, but that doesn't mean you can't suggest a "pass Go" mechanic for 1E.
Are you a fan of Starfleet Battles or Federation Commander? Then maybe you'd like to see a Kzinti affiliation - suggest it! I'm a huge fan of Gloomhaven, and I'd love to see some variant on the "upgrade/unlock" mechanics of that game added to 1E. Lots of video games these days have a "mastery" system to unlock rewards - perhaps that's something you'd like to see, either in game or as part of organized play?
The sky's the limit here folks. What concepts should 1E "import" from other games? Suggest it all - rules ideas, game components, mechanics, concepts - it's all valid, and we want to hear your thoughts.
It was a tough week for fandom, with several Trek veterans (and their loved ones) passing away. Take this as a reminder to be kind, and to tell the people you love and care about how much they mean to you. Be kind and be grateful, as much as you can as often as you can.
See you next week.
