I try not to lose my mind one way or the other. While I can get a feel for a game on location this game is like any other. Until I get it home and set it up for my way of playing I have no idea for sure how great it could be. I will say this. I have one pre-ordered and yes I am disappointed but mostly with the hideous artwork. This will be my first Jersey Jack after a bunch of Sterns. After Star Wars (which has grown on me and I really enjoy after some updates) I said no more NIB from stern. The game was disappointing in the beginning again like some other new stern products lately. So I thought Jersey jack does a better job so I will try POTC. I thought it looked spectacular. Hopefully some compromise will come out of the disdain shown by the people ordering. I like some of the ideas floated and I hope something changes......at the very least the crappy art.
