Finally we have been waiting a long time for this!  It sounds great I am so excited and it doesn't look like the wait will be to long before we get it.

Oh man, great news! Any idea which Investigators (except the obvious ones) might come with it?

Awesome news!

Yes!

Wish i could pre-order it. I want it as soon as it is released!

But i would really like to know more about the new game mechanics as would really like the game to get more "fleshed out".

I guess it's all about Dunwich (from what we see of the new four AOs cards), and after seeing Diana in the preview, my guess is that we'll see the whole Dunwich family arriving (and related other worlds card). The core ES set mirrored the core Arkham set, so I don't see why they shouldn't go on with this.

Hope some new preview will be aired soon :-)

Can you tell me which AO's do you see?

I can't make anything from this little picture.

Aboth (the first one, you can recognize his nostrils), Tsathogghua (you can see his tongue) and Glaaki (the last one, recognizable because of the blue sky in the background). You can check their art on the arkhamwiki.com. All these three AOs were released in the Dunwich Horror expansion for the Arkham Horror line, so my guess is that all the expansion will be related somehow to Dunwich

But clearly, I'm just speculating on a few assumptions

Also, you can see on the right side of the picture Rita (the first investigator), Jacqueline and Leo (third and fourth in the investigators stack)

This is great, I'm really looking forward to it.  I really hope they also reprint the 3 characters with the incorrect text on them and include them in the expansion.  The ones with the new "once per day" wording.  It'd be nice to have the correct wording on the card and not have to look them up in the FAQ.

THIS is what I have been waiting for.  Thank you FFG!  I just hope it's as good as the base… Maybe a little more challenging too.

At long last, an expansion for my favorite game.

Preorder as soon as I can.

Looks like they're taking the boardgame in a different direction, which I am pleased about.  Should keep both versions interesting to play for different reasons.  I think eventually they could easily start using different locations in the boardgame, too, but keeping them unique is a good idea.

On another subject, in the monster pile, I'm guessing the light green things with all the teeth are probably specific to Aboth- probably Child of Aboths, like in AH.  Also, I'm dying to know what that weird symbol on Wizard Whately's monster token is- it looks like something out of Battlestar Galactaca. 

Can't wait for this.  Insta-buy!

I'm willing to bet that symbol means you have to complete task in order if Whately is placed high enough in the task order. Which is quite devious.

I'm also thinking that they did not include a Cthulhu or Ithaqua-like "second stage" either because 1) they are saving it for another expansion or 2) decided it was too much to have to rotate out an entire set of adventure card for a new stack.

I think the digital version lends itself to easier manipulations in transitions between "stages" as well as the themeing of the monster cup to include GOO-specific monsters. If all this was done in a physical sense you'd be setting up almost a second version of the game which is something people might complain about.

And I'd bet you're right, although I'm guessing you have to do them in order regardless of whether Whately's at the top or bottom of the adventure.  Yes, that should add to the difficulty.
