Fantasy Flight

As we all know, Fantasy Flight Games was purchased by Asmodee last year.  Well, as of April this year they are no longer a publisher, but rather a Design House within Asmodee.  They will be under the Asmodee North America umbrella or something.  So as a tribute to the FFG brand I thought it would be fun to run through their catalog and pick out their best games ever.

The exhaust to defend or attack mechanic. The last straw for me with LOTR: LCG I've decided to start a series where I take games in my collection and think about them via the one mechanic I think defines them.

And I'm not out here trying to troll you and...
