I just started listening and am going through the back catalogue and I’m loving it. I do have a question though- it’s kind of two questions but I think they are related. 1 ) what are some older / out of print games that you would recommend tracking down?. 2) Are there any games with older editions in which the older edition is worth holding on to / tracking down/ better than the more recent edition?
