The happy part of me just wants to say "w00t!" ... but, I'll admit, the bitter part keeps repeating, "About frickin' time!"
Whatever your reaction might be, it's now a fact that Cosmic Encounter has separate database entries at BGG for all of its major editions. No more "Wait? are we talking about keeper flares or one-shot flares?" discussions ... no more having the Avalon Hill edition drag down what should be a much higher rating for the Eon version ... no more having to ever look at the Mayfair art if you don't want to.
Here's the relevant links that I've found so far:
Fantasy Flight Games
I'll be adding the new links to the links sidebar very soon.
