Advpuzlov, I just had to find room for Isabelle. You will notice Ring has gone too, which remains one of my favourites but would I recommend it to others to play over some other games??
Schizm is in the same boat - one of my all time best games but I was looking to balance my list a bit so something had to give.
BTW, Ring went to accomodate Black Dahlia so you should be pleased laugh
