Fantasy Flight Games have snapped up the Legend Of The Five Rings from Alederac Entertainment (AEG) and will now be looking ahead to create a Living Card Game and potentially a new Role-Playing Game using the property…
Despite only a few months ago getting a revamp and a sudden surge of support from AEG the game is now going to be passing over into the hands of Fantasy Flight. The games current cycle will be finished before hand but if you want to continue playing Legend of the Five Rings in a few years time then you’ll be switching to their LCG format.
The idea currently is for the game to launch refreshed and renewed in 2017. This gives Fantasy Flight plenty of time to get stuck into making the LCG format for the game different enough from their existing range to warrant it being a new addition to your collection.
While I do understand the draw of CCGs I do think that the LCG design model from Fantasy Flight is one of the best and probably has me buying more card packs than less simply because I know that I NEED that next pack. I have spent a small fortune on Netrunner!
Did you play the current iteration of Legend of the Five Rings from AEG? If so, let us know what you think of the change.
