Default Re: The Obligatory “How Did You Get Started in TFT” Thread

Yeah Ty, I loved the microgames too. How could you go wrong? For $3 you were getting a fully playable game that you could play fairly quickly and multiple times. Even if it turned out to be a lousy game, you weren't out much, but most of them were pretty good and pretty much ALL of the early ones were superb. This compared with a $30 game that would require a ping pong table to set up and several months of your time to play...

Of course, nowadays, I guess they simply can't do it any more. Even a cheap microgame would probably cost $10 to $15, and I can tell you that those old "$30 games" now run you anywhere from $100 to $300 (and a couple of them, even $400).
