Note: I received Tragedy Looper: New Tragedies as a review copy from WizKids. I bought the original Tragedy Looper (and expansions) myself a long time ago.
I was very excited when I heard about WizKids reprinting Tragedy Looper with new cases and an updated graphic design. I love the original game, but I had problems differentiating some of the tokens and the rulebook was pretty difficult to learn from, so I was hopeful that the new version would make the game easier to get played. When WizKids sent me Tragedy Looper: New Tragedies, I immediately opened it, combed through all the components, and read every word of the rulebook to compare it with the Z-Man games version of Tragedy Looper I have.
I received a review copy of Tragedy Looper: New Tragedies. Tragedy Looper is one of my favorite games of all time, but does the reprint do it justice?
