Old boosters compatbility

Recommended Posts

It sort of depends. The Cards will not be compatible with Unstitched but the models can be if you dont mind a bit of differential scale. The plastics are quite a bit larger. The cards can be pulled from the Puppet Wars website with some work. Unfortunately though, the metal boosters are the only method of getting hold of some of the Puppets (that aren't available in plastic at all). I am hopeful that at some point Unstitched will at least receive enough attention to place it in a finished state instead of the half-assed form it currently resides in.

 

Personally I recommend getting the metal boosters where you can and just playing the original version until such time as Puppet Wars receives some much needed attention. Perhaps that will happen after this Gencon when Malifaux hopefully takes a break to let the dust settle on all the new interactions that are being introduced before introducing another hundred or so.

Puppet wars unstitched really feels like it's dead on it's tracks right now. :(

You could add a few other Wyrd products to that list as well...Evil Baby Orphanage, Showdown, King of Artifice, Jet Pack Unicorn and Terraclips which is more than dead though has not been pronounced so by competent authority. To a lesser extent Through the Breach also occupies some space here since it has a bunch of semi development promises from the kickstarter to fulfill still.

 

I really do hope that Wyrd devotes some attention to these other brands once this Malifaux play test concludes. EBO is a fun little game that is at least begging for one more expansion that sends babies the opposite way of the Orange triangle (the next logical introduction to the game). Showdown could use a few more decks...King of Artifice could use a good look too as it hasn't been well received, perhaps a second edition that improved game play introducing more viable play options. Jet Pack Unicorn could probably use some additional development since once you have run thru the game once or twice it really loses its luster (even when played as a drinking game). Terraclips...well at least pronounce it dead.

 

This will also benefit Malifaux by allowing the massive backlog of models to catch up with development (There are still models from the first book awaiting release). It will also allow the countless power interactions that are lying under the surface currently to shake out in organized play over the year or so before introducing even more to the mix. I feel the current growth plan is unsustainable and will only result in damaging the brand.

 

My opinions as always...

Cheers fot the reply :)

 

It was mostly the cards that I was interested in being compatable, I'm not so hung up on scale even though the plastics are better sculpts.

 

I'll try and see if I can pull them off the site before buying any boosters :)

The other thing to remember is that the old metal puppets are also compatible with Malifaux (as long as you put them on the right bases) and can be bought cheap. Most of the old metal puppets were pretty good looking models too. I have a couple of them that I bought, painted up, and added to my Malifaux collection.

 

I actually prefer my painted metal Marcus puppet to my painted original version, and it is just fun to use the killer snowman Ice Golem puppet in place of the other sculpts!

Would love to see any attention given to this game...if nothing else at least the completion of the Unstitched version.

Has anyone made a PDF of the playtest cards? That seems like it would be useful.

 

I'm not that computer-ry-ist-ly minded, if anyone does though I'd be really grateful if shared as I want to buy the old expansion :)

If you purchase the old edition, aside from the new Puppet Stats you will also need the new Books to play Unstitched. The two games really are quite different and a lot of things that are present in the original game are not in Unstitched.

 

Personally I prefer the original version as it was a much more cerebral experience than Unstitched but there are others that prefer the opposite (having both versions will allow you to choose for your self).

Hi,

 

but all the cards on the PW-site are modified for the game play with the Unstiched rule book?

So this are not the old Version, but the new playtest versions?

As far as I understand, yes :)

Did they shut down the puppet wars website? I keep getting an error that the webpage isn't available... I was looking to try to print out the beta rule cards for the metal puppets. 

 

Does anyone have them all in one place? Can someone from Wyrd whip something up..?

Looks like they might be migrating it to the main site. It might take a bit as it is yet anther thing in the cue and also a game that hasn't really received much attention in quite a while. Here is the direct link (when it comes back up) Puppet Wars

Dammit! I was doing one a couple of months ago, was just going to finish it today but noticed the site is down :(

It'd be great if you could send me yours Brass Monkey and I might use those or will at least be able to finish mine :)

Did anything ever come of this? I have the mini expansion boxes to puppet wars base and am trying to get them ported over to unstiched to play with. Wyrd ever make a statement on this or allow anyone to post the ports?

Brass Monkey, i would like them as well if you still have Them. Hmm, almost seems like Wyrd is trying to hide puppet wars as if it was a huge mistake... The only mistake here is the companys bad handle on the board game and the community for it :)
