Good to see they're keeping it as a small expansion with just more cards. I honestly don't think the game needs any big new features. It would be a shame to see it fall victim to Arkham Horror feature creep.

 

Would just like to add that there needs to be a LOT more new research and mystery cards, not just just a couple. Minimum 6 mysteries for each ancient one so you can't guess and prep for predictable ones coming up.

 

I guess the only minor new feature I'd recommend is something like a "final mystery" that gets drawn for the third one. Something appropriately climatic to separate it from the pack of standard mysteries, even if it's just thematically with the flavor text.

Maybe for Azathoth.  For the other 3, you can just have them awaken if you want a strong, thematic, and climactic last mystery.  ;)

That's exactly what new expansions does. It boosts mystery card count of each AO to 6 and research ecnounter card count to 24.

Nah - unless you need to keep the box for the expansion and the insert for the base game box. Plenty of room in the base box for everything with room for an expansion (and I use a tacklebox to store tokens).

Do you keep the inside purple hard paper (with an image) or do you throw it away?

 

I keep.

I certainly keep it, although some of my tokens have to be stored underneath it to make room.

I tossed mine, I have an adjustable multi-chambered art box that I keep my tokens in. I have a Crown Royal bag for my monster cup, and a smaller bag for my search tokens. Everything fits perfectly, even with the minis based and out of the art box.

Does anyone have prior experience with Fantasy Flight and deadlines? I'm used to game companies announcing things and then not releasing them until 6-7 months after the scheduled date; is FF any better about that then most?

It's not uncommon for a six month wait. OTOH, they've had faster turnarounds too.

FF is very good at letting people know when their products are available.  Follow the Upcoming games link and it will show when the product will be available.  I would say Forsaken Lore will be out in June or July the latest, unless something unfortunate occurs in the development process.

The game is at the printer. This means the testing is done, so unless some technical problems arise it's very likely that the schedule is respected. Generally speaking, they are quite good in respecting deadlines.

I have been a big FFG supporter, and have always noticed that if they say it will be out in 2nd Quarter, it will be out in 2nd Quarter. It might be towards the end of the quarter, or almost the end of that month, but they have reliably met their deadlines over at least the last 2 years for me.

Printing is the long bit, in my experience. So I'm hoping it will have significantly fewer hiccups than most.
