I've really not looked into any of the DHMG games before, but there is obviously concerted enthusiasm that intrigues me.
In the merger announcement, a Compounded reprint was mentioned. Is there also a current reprint planned for VivaJava: The Coffee Game? Are there any rough ETAs that can be given for those (and any current-planned expansions like the Geiger expansion)? My end goal would be to get Brew Crafters, VivaJava, Compounded, and all the current expansions for them in one order if possible.
The descriptions of VivaJava and Compounded both sound like resource management games with intra-player economy emphasized. Is that about right? Does anyone who's played them care to comment on the gameplay?
