You can buy a physical copy of monsters of the multiverse by itself starting January 25 for delivery in May.
This is a terrible decision by WotC to be sure, but you can get the physical book without new copies of tasha’s or xanathar’s.

Wrong. AotC scores very well on the storytelling measures for number of clones and number of lightsabers!

I seem to recall that Attack of the Clones worked brilliantly as a children’s cartoon series.

I cannot decide if the sequels are worse than the prequels overall. I’d say TLJ is better than any prequel, but I cannot decide if TFA is as bad as or worse than Revenge. Rise of Skywalker and Phantom Menace are both just utterly terrible but in different ways, so I cannot decide which is the worst Star Wars movie.

Empire and Last Jedi? Yes!

I recall the backlash being immediate and overwhelming after the Phantom Menace, but maybe that was just my group of star wars nerd friends, all of whom detested the prequels.

I’m of a similar age and know the prequels are not good movies.
Charlie Hall is nominally Polygon’s tabletop game editor, which would hopefully require a working knowledge of popular board game types.
I find this list is geared towards video game players who might play a board game version of Stellaris or Frostpunk rather than euro game fans who get excited thinking about games like Tzolkin or Agricola.
I feel like a ton of folks in the hobby are looking forward to Frosthaven, at least in my circles, which includes people who adore complicated euro games more than any other genre.
Personally, the positive aside about Kingdom Death is what really convinced me to ignore Charlie’s board game opinions. KDM is a legitimately bad game.
