  1. That's unfortunate. I really hope that they change their minds and start reprinting it. I still need all of the expansions. Somehow, I hadn't heard of the T.V. show, before discovering the board game in 2011, or so, when Borders was going out of business. I like the game a lot, and have been wanting to get the expansions, but I had been deliberately avoiding doing so, until I had time to watch the series, as I wanted to avoid spoilers. Unfortunately, for several years, I was too busy to binge-watch anything, and during that time I joined a board game group, where one of the players already had all of the expansions, which further decreased my need to buy them, myself. A few years ago, I finally found some time to start binge-watching old T.V. shows, but decided to watch the entirety of Doctor Who, Star Trek, and the original Battlestar Galactica show(s) before watching the new Battlestar Galactica, which I only just finished. By then, of course, I had discovered that the three expansions I'd like to buy had disappeared less than a year ago. I had assumed that the Battlestar Galactica game and expansions would just keep sticking around at Fantasy Flight Games, considering how long it had done so, and how popular it was. If not, I had hoped that they would warn us ahead of time, with final print runs still on the way, like they had done with (most of?) the Games Workshop stuff. That was nice, as I was able to buy every single Talisman expansion that I was missing. I wish Fantasy Flight Games would get permission to do one final print run of Battlestar Galactica, as I intend to buy all three expansions as soon as I can find them (at a reasonable price ). Sorry to list my whole story, but I just wanted to throw my voice in as another person looking for the expansions, as well as an explanation of why I, and perhaps others, might not have bought the expansions while they were available, but want to find them now that they're not. I can't afford to buy all of the games and expansions I want, when they're released, so I end up putting most things off until the announcement of something like a final expansion, or new edition, before buying the entirety of a product line. I've found that with most games I care about, there's some kind of a warning sign, before it goes out of print, and/or enough excess supply in online stores combined with lack of demand, that something being out of print doesn't matter much. Unfortunately, with Battlestar Galactica, neither of those situations is the case.

  3. Updated to 0.06 gold for relevant information on "official" Ancient Ones and Heralds, and 0.01 gold for relevant information on "unofficial" Boards, Heralds, and Guardians. Throw_Rug and rovdjuret, if you see this, and have BoardGameGeek accounts, you can post their usernames below. I'd like to tip you 0.02 and 0.06 gold respectively, for your Mask Heralds.
  4. Updated to 0.02 gold for information on "official" content, and 0.01 gold for information on "unofficial" content.
  5. I started the following thread yesterday on BoardGameGeek: javascript:void(0);/*1312152569775*/ I have some help already, but more would be greatly appreciated. Even if you aren't normally one willing to use variants, you could help with the project if you have enough knowledge about the Cthulhu Mythos. If you have an account on BoardGameGeek and wish to participate, please use your account to post in the thread directly. If you don't have a BoardGameGeek account, and wish to participate, post your information here. I will then copy your post, and put it into a post in the thread, displaying your Fantasy Flight username at the top of the post. As I state in the thread, I award 0.01 Geek Gold per contribution. The specifics are in the first post. If you don't have a BoardGameGeek account, you are still entitled to all gold you would earn. I will hold it for you until when/if you decide to make a BoardGameGeek account. When you make an account, notify me with your Fantasy Flight account, and tell me your BoardGameGeek username. I will then transfer your gold to your account. You should also note, that the amount of gold I offer, is very little, and won't get you very far. There are several better ways to start collecting on BoardGameGeek. You can find them in the user guide: javascript:void(0);/*1312154369166*/ I greatly thank anyone who helps with this project.

  6. Hello rathianfire and anyone else with your question, who sees this. I just joined the site and was wondering the same thing. While looking lower in the forum, I found that others have started on this topic here:http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_foros_discusion.asp?efid=169&efcid=2&efidt=275010
