  1. I just got home from pre-ordering through my FLGS so I can confirm it's possible. Good luck!
  2. There's a new expansion not even out yet, excellent reason to panic that the games over. I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the perpetual panic thread for all of your perpetual panic needs.
  3. I'd suggest seeing if your favorite local game store can order it.

    Transitioning to 3rd Edition

    I do get that the delve with it's short stages and inability to look ahead is kind of worst case scenario.

    Transitioning to 3rd Edition

    That's very common in board games because every expansion that you require locks exponentially more people out of the game. Honestly having played the delve that was kind of a train wreck. There's a lot of game here, having to hunt through all of it doesn't make for short setup times. Honestly this is a common rule adhered to by game designers far and wide. To reiterate there's really nothing wrong with the way most game designers operate. I think it's just an abnormally large and obvious problem for Descent because they made some mistakes regarding too few health and stamina tokens, a lack of obviously common basic tile shapes and some weird monster choices in the core that have haunted them ever sense.
  6. Honestly how much more plastic and cardboard are you looking for? We already have a ton of heroes and a huge amount of monsters and tiles not just a few of which feel very VERY similar. I like that they're breaking out of the mold where every release has to check off the same boxes to give their descent fan base something that they've been asking for and hope to see more of the same going forward.

    Expansions Replay Value

    I do wish there was more though toward the future in the core. I haven't been the biggest fan of having to buy the same cardboard over and over...

    That's not entirely true because of road to legend

    Board Necessity

    I've heard of people playing these app driven games solo and to me that's a real head scratcher. On my own I would much MUCH rather play a video game. But when it comes to playing with a group of people this will do something that video games don't, it will get you around a table facing and interacting with each other. That said perhaps in the not too distant future virtual tabletops will be more accessible, delivering the same experience while relegating the cardboard of games like this to the trash bin of antiquated and overly elaborate nonsense... https://www.tested.com/tech/3275-dd-of-the-future-why-virtual-tabletop-gaming-is-going-to-be-awesome-video/
  10. Seriously, the jump in difficulty is significant and it's lack of classes and heroes isn't great until you already have plenty of diversity. That said Mists has my favorite small box monsters of the game. Yeah the items in this expansion are awesome, which made Chains that Rust so disappointing.
  11. I managed to get Runewars for $30 which while I never expect to actually play it, at that price it was worth it for the plastic... Anyway the Ardus out of it is pretty cool but I was disappointed for my playthrough of MoB/CtR not to be able to get a hold of Zarihell.

    Panic!!!

    I'm finishing up chains that rust on account of having started the combined campaign for halloween. Therefore I haven't even had a chance to more than click through the intro text to embers of dread yet. As such I thought this would be an appropriate time to restart the perpetual panic thread...I mean there's no new content in....I don't know like days!!!
  13. I don't have the impression at least thus far that FFG expects you to pay more than once. Yes the Kindle has tended to have some bugs after updates but that's made me inclined to glare at amazon over their proprietary nonsense as opposed to blaming FFG. I'm just glad FFG is willing to support the kindle, not everybody does.
  14. I think this really depends on how much RtL is appealing to old Descent players verses how much it's created it's own new following. If the reality is this new game is being bought by a new demographic that doesn't already have it all: 1: a new campaign would sell old expansions. 2: a MoB+CtR release would be less optimal because of the lack of heroes and the weird classes...
