you got it totally right - it is about separation ( and more ) ... - thanks again for the advice.
To clarify and make " a point " - at least one of importance to me:
WIF is a beautifully designed game - appealing not only to the mind, but to the eye ( I could add soul, but let´s not get carried away ...).
As far as analog WIF goes, big money ( I started as an undergrad - dirt poor... ) was spent on the game ( classic, deluxe, pif, aif, cif... ), boxes, glue..., and was WELL INVESTED.
Looking now at the computer release it´s about beauty and math.
From all I see a lot of dedication went into recreation - that I want to see ( 30 inch ... ), play, enjoy....
The math: At the worst - 100 hours of brousing + 10 games 39 - 45 ads up to 1500 - 2000+ hours. With about 1000 + Euro for hardware ( not little of the fun lies in the EYE of the beholder ) + game Euro 130, I would imagine myself enjoying a AAA+ past time at something between 50 and 80 cent/ hour.
That be worst case..., I might be at single digits in no time.
