They ability to run Store apps in a window is the best part of this upgrade.

But, I have no idea why they didn't allow live tiles on the desktop. They dropped Gadgets in Win8 and being able to put live tiles on the desktop would be much better than having the open the start menu/screen to see them. What good is a weather tile or news tile that is hidden 99% of the time?

Do the expansion rules change the resolution order? In the base game rules the players each resolve ALL their workers on their turn, in turn order.

So you want to be the Amoeba and Massochist with hidden aliens. Loose all your ships in one encounter then flip the Amoeba and Win! Woot!

Did they totally change the market rules? Where's the timer? I demoed this at Dice Tower con, and it was lots of fun.

+Bob Archer A quick look at the rules suggests that you can take from either (or both) discard piles, but you are right that you must take from the draw pile only after you've taken any you want from the discard piles.

Stupid continuity questions:

If the Pegasus was his last beer delivery, and the way home, how did they have beer to give the toolbooth dwarf. Also, why was he working a toll both, and not manning his shop?

Also, what was the big deal losing 6 kegs, if they were empty?

I was really expecting this whole chapter to be the start of a long journey where they got started on some quest... but it just turned into another battle round. Are there no quests or puzzles or anything, it just one battle round after another?

Personally, I think Chapter Three will have the answers to the Hellions' appearance and it might even involve the Six Demon Jar. Not only that, but they still have to take the orb they have to the sage, so there is still some major plot progression that might happen soon.

Then again, this show DOES show how most RPGs work. You could have a party of players who would rather be negotiators than fighters, or a party whose sole intent is to get into trouble and kill dwarven merchants in the middle of a massive rage zombie attack... For discounts.

Minor point, but you can't sing or hum music in Title Recall. It is like restriction #1. Ok, so major point!

You can say 1 word in round two, but repeating a word, doesn't make it two words. lol So, yes, you can repeat that word.

I can't tell, are your shelfs actually level? They look crooked. Perhaps it is the camera that is crooked?

I like your videos, but you've gotta bump up the audio level.

OK... my number 1 would probably be Terra Prime. This game is excellent. The game play, balancing your action points and modules on you ship. But, I think it was the crappy production that was it's downfall. It was an early Tasty Minstrel games... the wood bits are find... but the hexes are terrible, some of them had mold in them... but the game is GREAT! (it's ranked 2026 on BGG right now).
