    Holy Smokes, this thing costs $80?  That's only $20 less than the base game itself.  This better be worth that much.
     
    EDIT:  I suppose it does come with 5 new characters, a Blarog and other large minis and all the cards and tiles necessary for that.  So I guess it really is almost like a second base set.  Still, that was a bit of a shocker to see an expansion for that much.

    Yeah with so much included, it seems like they might as well have done the whole thing, but that wouldn't force a new consumer to buy the base product

    Otakuon got a reaction from AllWingsStandyingBy in Fact: FFG needs to do 'The Mandalorian' as an expansion pack for this STAT!   
    Yeah, I would love to see that happen. But to be honest, and I hate being pessimistic, something seems to be up with FFG in general.  I don't know if it's the new Asmodee owners or what, but FFG's output in general has slowed WAY down.  A few years ago, a game like this would have at least one expansion announced by now if not released and another one or two in the pipeline.  The relative mute chatter from FFG about ALL of their product lines is a bit disconcerting.  Just look at their "Upcoming" page.  It's barely updated these days and even then there are few products that are not reprints in their production schedule.  The recent Q&A with Andrew Navarro was a step in the right direction, but did little to assuage these fears that FFG is not doing so well overall.  Obviously, they could just be undergoing an internal restructuring that they are not making public and this is the reason for the sparse product release rate as of late, but the silence on their part does not instill much confidence.

    Otakuon got a reaction from Shironeko in So, how’s it going?   
    You are most likely right.  But still for those of us that have been long time FFG fans, it leaves a bitter taste in our mouths.  Look at the "Upcoming" page as it currently stands.  It's just X-Wing and Legion products mixed in with a Few LCG card packs and a handful of RPG books..  The only "New" product on the page right now is  the "Fallout Shelter" game which is a "small" game of sorts.   Where is the next Journey to Middle Earth Expansion?  Where is the next Arkham Horror 3e expansion?  Where is the Outer Rim expansion?  Where are the new product lines like the next board game set in Terrinoth or the Android universe (and yes, I know there have been "rumors')?  Does FFG even want to be a board game company anymore, or is it trying to become just a LCG and Star Wars miniatures game company?
    Maybe FFG is just in a "between release" slump right now.  But who knows.  I do know that in years prior, there would be a lot more things to look forward to in the months ahead from FFG than what we have currently.   On the flip side, my game budget has shrinked dramatically as there is less stuff to buy these days.

    To be honest, I haven't seen an actual FFG staff member post to these forums in years.  I highly doubt anyone at FFG actually reads them anymore.  Best way to reach anyone at FFG directly is to post a comment directly on their Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram pages.  Even then, good luck in getting a response.  As of late, if you try to email FFG directly, you will get a nasty response to never contact them via email again.

    I also "N"th all the "what's up with Terrinoth/Descent" questions.  Same with Imperial Assault.
    My questions are:
    Are there plans for releasing new, stand alone campaigns (either as digital PDFs or as physical books) for Descent and IA's traditional one vs many mode? What are the plans for releasing additional co-op campaigns for the Descent and IA apps? Are there any plans to release an official scenario/campaign editor for the games that use apps (Descent, IA, MoM 2e, Journeys in Middle Earth, etc) in order to allow fans to create their own content?  Such an editor would go a long way toward extending the life span of these games and drive product purchases (and in fact there is already a fairly decent home-brew community editor which I am sure you are aware of). Are there any plans to expand your printing operations in the US and/or manufacture more products in the US as opposed to China given the current trade climate and the recent issues FFG has had with respect to its overseas printers and shipping partners (like, what happened with that GoT Board Game playmat)? Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions!
