Universal Head

The redoing of rules is definitely annoying – Deadzone has only been out two years and the designer is already talking about a considerably changed version. Apparently there are going to be changes aimed at streamlining and speeding up the game play (and making it more aggressive). It’s all very well taking on feedback from the players, but I’ve only had the chance to play it a few times and already they’re making major changes to the rules (in fact, as usual, I’ve spent more time making my summary and reference sheets than I have playing it)!

It’s easy to spin this process as the company being fluid and responsive, but surely a game should be able to stand on its own feet for more than a couple of years without a ‘redux’. And if they do go ahead, the rules should definnitely be free.
