I might be convinced to kill to get a FFG made Babylon 5 LCG (or any game, for that matter)- but I don't think it will happen, for the reasons already given above.
I would be all aboard if a B5 LCG came out love that show currently rewatching it from season 1
the gnomes are after me
I also think one of the reasons the Bab 5 game tanked was they didn't really get going until the show was near the end of its run. Magic was king at the time, and people didn't really get with a 4 player game. V:TES appealed to a narrow group that actually liked talking and interacting with others at the table other than saying 'I attack for 5, done'. If it reappeared as a lcg with licensed images from the show, not original artwork, I'd buy it.
Jack of all trades, Maester of none
i would kill to get the Babylon 5 LCG.
I don't know about kill, but regardless, I'd love to have it made as well.
Primarily an LCG player. Hit me up if you're in the Baltimore area, I'd love to play!
The problem with b5 was that it turned bad at the end. All down to JMS being told that season 4 would be the last and he had to compact his 5 season story line, then being given has 5th season and having to fill it with naff filler episodes.
Sure it was epic but the ending ruins any hope of the franchise being brought back as a game, crusade and legend of the rangers were the final nails in the coffin. A bit like how the final series of BSG sucked and FFG didn't release an expansion to cover that series for it's board game.
I'd love to see FFG take lessons from B5 and turn twilight imperium into a LCG, this would fit with the business model of having their other flagship games have matching card games.
I miss nothing about the mechanics of this game. Loved the show, played the TCG, one of the worst TCG's I've played. Good riddance. 4-player games with inconsistent tourney politics make for terrible tournaament support. Might be ok as a social game, but to be honest, I'd much rather play boxed set Trek or something dominion-like for a casual game. Deckbuilding is a highly competitive mechanic, and it doesn't fit well with the lackluster competition this game offered.
…if they are going to go with something that is not well recognized (anymore) but has a more cult following…
You mean something like CoC, AGoT, and W:I?
