The VEKN Design Team has published a second entry for the upcoming VTES expansion, which is (still) unnamed yet:
Congratulations to Matt Hirsch for winning his second North American Championship, and congratulations as well to all the other tournment winners at Origins and the Week of Nightmares! Many thanks to Kevin Mergen, Bob Joseph, Mark Loughman, Jay Kristoff, and Hugh Angseesing for organizing and running tournaments all week!
I had a very productive meeting with the playtesters at Origins. It was great to be able to get more in-depth insight from the players, and I came out of it with a much clearer picture of the playtest feedback we’ve been getting. There’s a lot of information to sort through, and it’s fun and interesting to get several different answers from several different people for the same questions. However, the decisions we in the Design Team have to make are made a lot easier as a result of the discussions and feedback. Round Three of playtest will be wrapping up in the next week or so.
EBay never ceases to amaze me. But maybe the price for the card is only set that high to draw attention to the other auctions … or a typo?!
