I'll gladly pay upwards of $35-50 for Catan, Mysterium, Betrayal, Ticket to Ride, et al, because those are all so well made. They actually look & feel like a premium product & earn their higher price tags.BBP wrote:http://usaopoly.com/games/cluer-legend-zeldatm
Meanwhile, we have endless themed Clue, Monopoly, Yahtzee, etc games, mass produced with cardboard playing pieces, often lazy art design, and we're expected to shell out a premium for that?
I'm not even sure who the target audience for these games is supposed to be. A rabid Alien vs. Predator fan might want to add the Clue game to their collection, but who else? Is there really a big enough fanbase for the Zelda games that's also been clamoring to see their favorite characters & whatnot transposed into the Clue mold? Methinks not.
At least the Harry Potter/Doctor Who/Sherlock editions make some sense. Massive built in fan base, plus guaranteed crossover appeal with gamers within the franchise's fanbase. I can even see the Downton Abbey version appealing as a gift for a fan of the show who might find the idea of a Cluedo mystery at the abbey an amusing premise (meaning me and a bunch of older British women, probably).

I don't like it when Cluedo isn't about murder. For a theft or a measly excuse like this Zelda game I don't roll dice.
