Honestly, if US Games went back to the early 70's version, in look, feel, and production value, all this would be moot. The newer versions, in my opinion, are horrible. The AGM premium version is very, very nice. I realize that profits rule all in this day and age, but I would pay more for a better product. And I assume most "Tarot" people would. Just look at all the fan fair for the new AGM version....

Bottom line: Better product, more sales......You can only hide behind a copyright for so long. A company will challenge this at some point and win....then what? US Games needs to get back to their roots, or this trend will continue.

Not if they don't have **as deep a pocket** as USG. I believe, this is what US Games is counting on.
