So that's it? No other preview/promos?  Its available now?

 

And I'm broke, temporarily at least.  I'll be checking back on ordering though.

Played our first game with Firelands last night. Some of the new cards are really cool (or is that hot) the fire theme runs strong throughtout and changing the Sentinel space to something else and just walking across is ace. You can change spaces back again as well, all sorts of fun.

All of the new characters have some great abilities and I wouldn't mind drawing any of them in a game.

Game number 2 tonight.

Lucky you! I still have to wait for my copy.
Does the Fireland tokens and Terrian cards also affect the other regions (as Dragon tokens)?

The tokens affect only the outer and middle regions as far as I can tell, same with the terrain cards. I've not used every spell yet or gone through all adventure cards so I may be wrong. It certainly didnt affect the inner region when we played.

It seems like the most interesting and game-changing expansion since Blood Moon. I'm hoping to order very soon.

 

As a person who plays with all expansions and some slight house-rules for The Dragon expansion, I wonder how well it will integrate.  Can't wait.

We play with everything too and I have a feeling this expansion will get lost like all the other smaller ones do.  Our group may be getting an update to our D10 rules.....  :-)

If it affect only outer and middle region I am afraid that other regions like City or Highland will be very safe in comparison to the main board... It could be profitable to stay outside it for most of the game but I hope it can be balanced in expansion having an impact on all other (like Miskatonic horror to Arkham).

Hi Croonos,

Apologies I should have stated that I was referring to the main board only in my previous post. Yo csn indeed place firetokens on spaces within the City, Highlands etc. Each space can only ever have one token on it at a time.

The terrain cards can also affect board expansions.

Sorry for any confusion.

I wouldn't worry too much about spoilers now that the expansion is "in the wild". Mind you, don't go listing the entire text of the expansion! :)
