Rob Daviau, designer, doing AMA on Reddit

https://www.reddit.com/r/boardgames/...ou_can_ask_me/

He's been answering questions for about 20 minutes now. Definitely doing it to promote his new legacy game, Seafall, but if you have any Heroscape questions, he'll probably be willing to answer.

Thanks for the pointer! This was the biggest discovery for me:

I've been hyped for SeaFall for a long time now, and preordered yesterday! I know the player range is 3-5 and some people were hoping for official 2 player support. Will SeaFall break if 2 people each control two players?

I'd play a straight two-player game rather than two teams of two. It will mean less PVP fighting (or less of a need to fight) but should work.

Re: Rob Daviau, designer, doing AMA on Reddit

interesting that he cited oil prices relating to plastic pricing relating to the Death of heroscape

good news then Rob,

oil prices in 2016 back down Close to 2003 prices. Maybe time to fire up the hex machine again?

It's really to bad they won't start making the terrain again in bulk. It's so useful for so many games. And with AoTP it seems like people would buy it up. I know I would. My only regret is not buying more when I could! And I am lucky enough to at least have gotten one of everything.

Re: Rob Daviau, designer, doing AMA on Reddit

Good AMA by Rob. I'm considering putting this in my sig to counter all those who think WotC killed Heroscape:

"Heroscape ended because the cost of plastic is tied to the price of oil. If you think of oil prices in 2003 vs. 2010 you can see that the game simply became unprofitable." - Rob Daviau
