For more proof: pics of Medieval Madness board:
They took our cows! **crowd grumbles**
They took our children! **crowd grumbles**
They took our livestock and treasured historical documents! **crowd grumbles**
They took our wives! **crowd cheers**
so...not having played the previous version before, are they pretty accurate to the tables? Do they add any animations? Like when I blow up a castle, can I expect the castle to shake and rattle like it does on a real machine, or is it possible they'll add an animated explosion to the thing? I hope the former, as I'd like an accurate (as possible) re-creation.
Also, how do they handle the graphics board for animations for things like the catapault launch and the knights charging and that game where you have to save the children from the birds?
Just wondering what to expect, as far as faithful recreation of the board. As you can tell, I'm a big Medieval Madness fan....spent a ton of money on it in the arcade, and my buddy/neighbor even bought a real machine for something like $3500 that we played endlessly (then he moved to Florida and took it with him). Here's a pic of us playing it in his house (I'm the one in orange with the beer gut patiently awaiting my turn):
