Yes sir! But im afraid he’s just a puppet of sorts. The last guy i found out got fired because some of their fantasy RPG noob games dropped in sales. This will have little impact on AH because its still a company sitting on the back burner. Nobody is pushing Avalon Hill to success. All these people are all minimalists doing the least amount of work as possible. No marketing whatsoever is going on except for a few perfunctory “news releases” ,No print media advertisement , no forum support, no special online demos, nothing but crickets. Its a joke and they should all be ashamed.
I will always stand by my view that WOTC is slowly destroying Avalon Hill by neglect. The decision making on what is being produced is not following any overall plan and its got a few titles being circulated from past fortunes made, but no new ideas and the few new ideas that come out are not based on any feedback from the consumer. Making Diplomacy is a mistake along with Acquire. These games are not bringing new people into the hobby as the people who play them already have all the different versions. Diplomacy Deluxe is still the best version ever made san the original Key games version with the larger board.
They should embrace the titles from the heyday: Stalingrad, Afrika Corps, Anzio, Luftwaffe, France 40, rail baron, D-Day, Russian Campaign, Midway, etc… Make these games and bring back The General magazine. You can make these games with pieces, blocks, or counters. All these ideas and they decide on “Acquire”? you gotta be kidding me or what?
