Captain's log: supplemental

After some more thought, I did, in fact, trade away Duel in the Dark. The more I considered our playing, the more I realized that there just wasn't a tremendous amount of game there for the time spent.

For me, here was the telling point: after playing the two missions, we preferred to do something different. If the game had been more engaging we would have played another pair of missions, but we didn't. Compare that to C&C:A from a few sessions previously. Or even Clash for a Continent, our first session. In both those cases we played a pair of games, then turned it around and went again. i.e. at the same point that we stopped DitD we continued to play the others. I think that speaks volumes.
