What happens when you ask some gaming friends if they are interested in trying the new Fireball Island, and it turns out one of them still has his childhood copy of the original. You play both back to back.

Also. I've never played the original, and it turns out that it's...not good. The crazy eBay prices are pure nostalgia.

That's a shame because I loved that game as a kid.

How was the new one? Compared to the original?

@ystwyth I really like the new one. It's got all the fun stuff people remember from the original combined with some interesting but not super challenging game play. Plus the board is amazing.
