Even the ff is the only and best company for board games.I advise everyone to wait at least 10 year after
they see a new a title.The reason is that ff will soon revised the title to second edition or more ,as far for the
I've heard this exact same arguement time and time again with RPGers. Most RPGs put out a new edition every ten years or so. That is, in fact, the established lifespan of a product like this.
If any company (not just FFG) puts out a new product and you insist on waiting ten years before you buy it, you really shouldn't be surprised that a new edition is right around the corner. Most normal people have had ten years to play and enjoy the older edition, after all, and they're ready for something new, while you're only now getting off your high horse, just in time to get pissed off about the new edition and wait another ten years.
Unless you enjoy watching from the sidelines and getting angry about the fact that companies want to revitalize their old products, I really don't understand the benefit of this kind of mentality. If you had only gotten over your self-righteous indignation earlier, you could have joined us in enjoying the new edition and gotten a good ten years out of it yourself before the next edition comes along.
It's true there are some people who are only now getting into 1e and may be disappointed that the announcement of 2e came right on the heels of their purchase (Sorry, Blackzero.) That's just bad timing; it sucks, but it happens. For those people, they can rest assured that the conversion kit will let them get at least some use of out the old edition if they decide to upgrade to 2e in a year or so. Or, as other posters have already said, they can just keep playing 1e if they like. FFG isn't forcing you to buy the new edition. You can keep playing 1e if you want to - there's plenty of material out there to keep you busy.
So is the reprints for Altar of despair, Road to Legend, and Tomb of ice going to be first or second Edition?
The reprints will certainly be 1e. They are reprints, not revised editions. To update them for the 2e would require a whole new run of playtesting, component design, etc, etc, whereas reprinting just means printing the same old thing again. Take a look at how FFG handled the revised edition of Curse of the Dark Pharaoh expansion for Arkham Horror. It was very clear from an early stage that they were changing the expansion and not just reprinting it.
These boxes are being reprinted. I don't think FFG has any intention of retreading old ground with 2e, aside from offering fans the conversion kit for those who really want to keep using their favourite heroes. (I'm not sure that the new stat cards for old monsters would see any use except by fan-made quests, unless there are also spawn cards that follow the 2e system.)
