    Default Any thoughts on bringing this to XBLArcade?

    Kinda what the title says. Has Giant considered bring the game to Xbox Live Arcade? I'll be the first to admit I have no clue as to what that would entail, but still think it would be a great idea.

    I've thought about it. In fact, we at APE Games are SW developers and actually have the XBox Live dev kit.

    After considerable thought, though, I think that the numbers don't really work out. While the game is currently going into it's 3rd print run, the number of OOTS gamers compared to what would be necessary to make money on XBLA are way small.

    However, companies like Big Huge Games are testing the waters by developing XBLA games like Settlers or Catan and Carcassone. While we're happy with the success of the OOTS game, the numbers are nowhere near the number of gamers that play these other board games.
