I've spent a great deal of time learning about this game over the last few weeks since I've never played, and what I see is really fun. So I was going to buy a copy for myself, however I see they just released version 3 of the game which really changes the game fairly dramatically combining some of the mechanics from Eldritch Horror, Pandemic, and the Arkham Horror card game which makes it an all new game. It seems to be a better game on initial playthroughs, but to maybe have less replayability than version 2 (Which we're playing) does.
Do any of you have experience with the new version and what are your thoughts? It's 45 dollars right now. In some ways it's a much better game as the mechanics are a bit streamlined, it adds a story that unfolds as you play (Which removes some of the replayability), and it only takes a bit less than 2 hours on a normal playthrough compared to the much longer time a normal game of Arkham takes.
Just curious if anyone here had played it and had thoughts on it, or whether I should try and find a used copy of this version for my own use? (Not that I ever have anybody to play with anymore, but in the off chance I find board game friends again, I'd have it).
