    This is kind of true, most people want to just forget this last year of the pandemic of shitshows that governments both local and federal made in the name of saving people over 80 years old that don't like to go out and socialize anyway.

    Yeah, I don't want the game but I wouldn't mind having some of the hero miniatures.

    Wait? Do you honestly think the creation of this board game took development time away from WoW? Like Seriously? This isn't even the first time Blizzard has licensed their IP to board games. There was even one released prior to WoW being released.

The Blizzard version is not a game about a pandemic but using the Pandemic board game system of play with WotLK layered over top.

    Even gathering to play with others is a non issue. You could still play virtual though it would take a dedicated "Game Master" to move control the stuff for everyone else playing.
    Dude literally most people didn't know that was a board game like, ever. I didn't and neither did others in this thread. So to us, yeah, it seems like pretty bad taste before we learn that factoid.

    That is why you inform yourself before having a knee jerk reaction.

    60 dollar is a pretty decent price. That equates to ~51 euro. Not to bad. Then I check the EU gearstore and guess what. 75 euro. Thats a little over 88 dollars. An almost 30 dollar price hike for no real reason.

    Gotta love living in Europe. I was actually looking forward to this boardgame back when it was revealed a month or so ago. I love pandemic, its a great game but boy is 75 euro to much for a pandemic version.

    75 fucking euros, damn are they serious?

    The only similarity is that they are also board games.

    Modern board games have evolved a lot since Monopoly and Risk came out - they tend to play faster and with less downtime, have more interesting choices, be less luck-based, better balanced, and overall just more interesting and fun.

    There's an entire community around them and plenty of content creators that create great "how to play" videos on the most varied board games, which will most likely happen for this game. I definitely recommend exploring the world of modern board games, lots of fun stuff out there.

    Just like it is insensitive to have "War" in your game title when millions of people have died because of war, right?

    Shoot first, ask questions later. Pew pew.

    It is pretty funny to see people saying it is expensive... meanwhile they are willing to buy in-game mount for half of that price, LOL.
    Anything between 50-100$ is pretty standard in board games world... expecially if it has got official licence.

    What really bugs me about this is they are actually quality prints. The ability to make cheap, quality prints has always been there and this is the only way to get them.

    I mean I ultimately wasn't gonna go on a campaign or something. It was just a "wtf" moment that I probably would've forgot about in a f ew minutes because it's just a board game.

    Blizzard's marketing department needs to read the room.
