I really like the additional dice included in Unseen Forces but was wondering what additional options are going to be available in future expansions? I can't imagine that more and more dice will just keep getting added ad nauseum. Are there plans to include two stage scenarios a la Omens. I really like that idea as it brought a great new level of play the first time I played C'thulhu and found myself transported via ship to an ocean map. I would love to see this sort of thing in the table top game. Any thoughts on other expansion ideas?

 I enjoy this game also, play it a lot. I was wondering what expansions might be in the works. There are plenty of cards now but I was wondering if it would go "outside" the museum or an artifact might send you somewhere else. Anyone else got ideas?

I guess we will see the remaining investigators / ancient ones and maybe heralds arriving, plus other cards. It would be nice to see some other dynamics entering play (vortices or the DOR track), so that you can use some special dice to solve special adventures / tasks able to influence the new dynamics.

Dunno, really. But for sure, I'd love to have something more coming :P

It would be cool to see "Arkham Location" cards that could be opened up by completing adventures, kind of like Other World Cards. It would be nice to see some familiar locales in Arkham itself, and could represent investigators leaving the museum to fetch important items or allies, with few or no Elder Sign rewards, to keep Other Worlds important.

You know, that's a great idea. Having cards able to make other cards entering play and offering different things to the investigators (different ways to acquire ES or different winning strategies)

I think it would be great if they incorporated some aspects of the Elder Sign: Omens into future expansions, including the expedition to Alaska from the Ithaqua expansion and the expedition to the Pacific from Cthulhu.  I have played both of those expansions extensively, and there are some great monsters and adventure cards that would be a lot of fun to try with the board game.  The added objectives, like limited supplies or searching for artifacts could add some great twists.

I'd like it if they added more ways to get blessed and cursed dice.  I've barely ever seen either die come up.  Also it would be nice if they found a way to ramp up the difficulty.

If you want to see more Blessings in your game, you can always get a Blessing at the Chapel. Plus there should be enough items to grant some Blessings to arrive (Holy Water, Cross, the Blessing spell come to mind).

 

As for the Cursed die.. just play an Abhoth game.

 

I'm saying this simply because I believe it's very unlikely we'll have another expansion using Blessings / Curses: generally speaking, FFG games are modular, so that expansions do not interact with each other (we had a couple of exceptions so far, but generally this doesn't happen), so that focusing on Blessings and Curses would imply the dice and the cards to be printed again.

Tibs,

 

     The only problem I see with the idea of incorporating other places from Arkham....is that it starts to feel like Arkham.  If I want to play Arkham Horror, I'll play that game, where Elder Sign has its own characteristics.  To make it too much like another game in the franchise would, to me, dilute it, rather than enhance it.

 

Cheers,

Joe

I hope the next expansion makes Elder Sign harder.  Its too easy of a game to play, even with the Hard Mode Mythos cards.  My friends and I have a 100% win rate at it.  I can't really boast that about the other Arkham File games however, or many other co-ops for that matter.
