    Forsaken Lore is the one everyone recommends, but every expansion adds to the replayability.
    First small expansions:
    -Forsaken Lore (like said before ,it adds to the base game AOs, Nasty AO, no Investigators)
    -Cities in Ruin (Best small expansion. Filled with theme, Disasters!, 4 excellent investigators)
    Big expansions:
    -Mountains of Madness (Adds everything. Most content, Good AOs, sideboard adds its own Research encounters not tied to any AO, 8 investigators)
    -Under the Pyramids (Good sideboard to use with everything. Adds most Expeditions. Both AOs great, 8 investigators)

    The first expansion I would recommend would be Forsaken Lore - it adds cards to the existing decks, including the Ancient Ones, adding more variation.
    After that it would purely depend on what themes you like and what you want from the game.
    Masks of Nyarlathotep can be left for last.
    I personally really enjoyed the Cities in Ruin expansion and the Under the Pyramids expansion.

    Thanks,  Forsaken Lore will be here Wednesday from amazon, (may be able to get in a game before then, or might be Wednesday night playing) and will get a few games under my belt, Mountains of Madness and Under the Pyramids both look great.

    Definitely one of my other favorite board game publishers is Avalon Hill. While they are generally know for large-scale, strategy warfare games like Axis and Allies and Ikusa, they are well-detailed and do a great job of transporting you to their setting.

    While not a great analog, my group and I have been enjoying Betrayal Legacy, which strings a long campaign through multiple game sessions as a generation of families become implicated in a dark mystery involving a constantly shifting haunted house. It's a legacy game, so we have been progressing forward and making permanent changes to the game and components as we are playing. It's our first legacy game, and we are having a ton of fun with it!
    Happy gaming!

    I'm definitely a buyer. Co-op with app? Yes please! At first I assumed it would be a Descent/Imperial Assault clone but glad to see it is something different.
    This looks great - my only quibble is I'd like to see other heroes (non-Canon or lesser-known Canon) taking on these quests, possibly in other times (early Third or Fourth Ages) ... just for my Tolkien-purist side.

    I always thought a IA version of LOTR would be awesome, looks like we got something kind of close on its way. Definitely not the same system, but borrowing mechanics from a number of FFG games as well as what looks to be card based combat (Gloomhavens card based combat is the most fun/interactive combat system I've ever used).
    Looks to be a must buy.

    That actually reminds me of some of the promotional materials for the Force Unleashed II video game, where a CG trailer shows Vader slamming through a series of walls like a wrecking ball. Perhaps Diala also has over-the-top Force powers?

    Happy New Year, friends!
    After a few weeks hiatus from IA, we got right back in with a new campaign of the Core Box. It's been an interesting composition with the core game, as the heroes comprise of Drokkata, Diala, Jarrod & Jax, and Finn, while I am using the Precision Training Class for the Imperials.
    We're a little over halfway through the campaign at the time of this writing, and there has been a ton of dramatic, interesting moments. But none has topped when we did Diala's side mission, Temptation. Full spoilers to anyone who hasn't done this particular mission:
     
    It's these little moments, framed by the story and flavor presented in the missions, that makes this game so rewarding to play. Even if you come on the losing end, you are so enraptured in the events. It's just pure Star Wars.

    Interesting idea! I personally think it would be interesting if we saw an expansion that takes place following Return of the Jedi, as the Empire scrambles to regroup as the war reaches it's endgame. Then you have an opportunity to start introducing new characters/locations that link up to the Sequel Trilogy or that play a big role near the end of the war, like Crait, Kashyyyk, or Sullust.

    Sequel Trilogy just isn't fleshed out nearly enough for this quite yet.
     
    It's easy to throw a random ship in for X-Wing, but outside of new stormtroopers and some heroes, what could we really go with?
     
    Hopefully the Resistance show builds this up more, but I don't see this happening at all until EpIX comes out. Especially because of how restrictive the timeline is so far in the ST, given how TFA-TLJ is likely less than a week of time in total.

    Don't mind the haters, @Marshallmanna, haters will always hate. The ST is GREAT Star Wars and I'm sure FFG are plotting ways to cash in on that rich era (assuming their license covers the new stuff). But it is hard to move into the ST with IA as it is, since few of the current figures will be relevant for that time period. I believe it is more likely, as @Shwarzz indicates, that the ST will be the target of a IA 2nd edition, or possibly a different game all together. But in short, unless FFG aren't allowed to do products in the ST period, you'll eventually get a Kylo Ren mini to play with   Personally, I'm more interested in Rey, so perhaps we should duel it out?

    Just to let everyone know, last week I had reversed my fortunes! Upon completing Return to Echo Base, again a Rebel Victory, the mission prompted an Agenda Mission: Binary Revolution, IG-88's Side Mission. Despite the Rebels best efforts, my druids continued to support each other with Technical Support, mitigating damage and stunning the rebels with Arc Blasters. They were able to knock out IG and one of his copies, but ran out of time to take out the final clone before conceding defeat. Two of the rebels were supremely frustrated by this, although I played to the strengths of the mission (plus, they are 7-1 at this point; what exactly are you complaining about?). It was tense, but I ultimately won the day and they did begrudgingly congratulate me. IG-88 probably won't make another appearance until the final mission, but the sounds of servos and drills will continue to echo in their minds.

    We recently added 0-0-0 and BT to our roster.  There's probably better options, strategy wise ... but thematically they're too fun and have been showing up in every single mission possible since.
    ... especially since my brother, empire, has been voicing BT as GIR from Invader Zim.

    I'm personally still at a loss as to what happened. Spoilers, of course. Last night we played through "Preventative Measures" for the ROTH Campaign as MHD-19's Side Mission. For those not in the know, this mission involves rescuing Draelyn, a Rebel who has personal history with MHD-19. The crux of the mission is that the Rebels need to get him to the evacuation zone, where the Imperials (me) have to prevent them from getting to him by Round 3 or by executing him.
      I start the mission off strong, with Snowtroopers and an Elite Probe Droid dealing intense damage to the heroes, crippling them within the first round of play. They become more crestfallen when the first door opens, finding a pair of resolute Royal Guards defending the entry way. They eventually make it to and open the second door, activating Draelyn to great expense. Draelyn is being closed in by Trandoshan Hunters, Snowtroopers, and an Elite Probe Droid, with at this point having all but one of the Rebel Heroes wounded (Verena Talos in this case).    This is when the unthinkable occurs. While I was able to get some good hits into Draelyn, Draeyln was able to get some disgustingly lucky misses in a row, not to mention with some damage mitigated by MHD and Bacta Infusion. Given the number of troops and previous damage, Draelyn should be 5 different kinds of dead. As troopers are closing in, Verena gets to work with "Close Quarters", taking out several troopers with minimal actions. Humorously, Verena is able to take out the Elite Probe with a strike from the Armored Gauntlets, which the player has dubbed Verena's Fist of Fisting, stating "You may not have a hole, but I'll give you a new one!" before driving her fist into the guts of the Probe. Despite the Imperials best efforts and reinforcements, Draelyn managed to escape, securing a Rebel victory.   It was by far the closest Campaign Mission I have played yet!
