Found this over at BGG. Apparently it was posted briefly on here and then pulled. Take from it what you will.

If they keep expanding on this idea beyond just being in Game Night Kits, I'll definitely pick the game back up.  I enjoy it normally, but it would've gotten a lot more play time had there been a cooperative mode for two players.


I know there's no grand plan here.  This is just the way it goes.

It would be an instant buy for me.

The article looked good while it lasted, FFG must have read my mind (or my post in the future of descent thread).

I guess I'm on pace to buy everything they make for Descent anyways, but making a Warhammer Quest-like rules expansion is definitely something I would want to get. The campaigns are actually decently long and take awhile to go through, but this game could use some additional ways to play.

some arts reminds me of RuneBound Midnight (for the dragon on Trash Heap)

 

but the real question is : why posting this, and after removing it ?

Probably just a mistake with the turn over of the year. They maybe have a sistem that auto uploads things at a certain time and having the year change to 2014 messed with it or something.

Based on what was quoted in the OP, it sounds like this announcement was intended to be aimed at store owners and otehr businesses who might want to run the 2014 Game Night.  I know FFG has a special account level for people who own gaming stores, etc.  My guess is that this was only supposed to be visible to those accounts, but it was accidentally made visible to everyone (and then fixed.)

 

The rest of us will no doubt see something very similar when this Game Night is scheduled to actually happen.

I hope this will eventually be freely available to all of us to purchase soon!  I guess it will be a Print On Demand add on.

 

Looks great.

How would a print on demand add on work with acrylic components? That seems prohibitively expensive for them to keep running.

Perhaps Forgotten Souls will be released as a print-on-demand and the other products will be released as their own add-on kit.  This would be a good chance for them to provide additional green dice for those of us who are still waiting for them.  ;)

from the newspage:

 

Even if you don’t attend a Game Night at your local retailer, the adventure included in Season One 2014 Descent Game Night Kits, Forgotten Souls, will be available to you via In-House Manufacturing after the kits are rotated out of circulation later in 2014.

 

no idea what will end up to buy later since there is more stuff in it than the usual POD-cards. if they can produce dice in-house now we might see more of them.

 

also, no date yet :mellow: but was about time for a pure descent co-op to show up - think I can wait a bit longer  ;)

My assumption was that the dice were just fancy versions of regular blue dice. You know, like how they make the fancy versions of certain Netrunner cards for tournament prizes. This you wouldn't need them for the expansion.

I bet the dice and acrylic tokens won't be included outside of the game night kits.

I assumed that would be the case...  Wouldn't mind if I was wrong!
