      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Is there any reason to get multiple copies of the base set or Force packs?

6 posts in this topic

I have been buying into the game even though I have not had a chance to play it yet (have one of the base set and each Force pack so far, and plan on buying at least one of each upcoming set indefinitely just to be safe). 

 

Most people near me play Netrunner, and I've be pretty busy with X-Wing and now Edge of the Empire.  But, I am interested in learning this game (which will be my first LCG) at some point, and I am wondering if there is a good reason to get more than one of the base set or Force packs (i.e., does it lead to better games, or will it make for more competitive decks in a tournament if I am ever able to go that route, etc.)?

 

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

I buy one more of each than is needed to play competitively. I have a copy of every objective set in a binder and use it for reference when building decks. Unless you are doing that than Zacky Midnight is correct. It's still unknown how many copies of the multiplayer set we will need.

2 core sets are needed. Then one of each force pack and 2 of each deluxe expansion (ie edge of darkness)

Well, 2 of Edge of Darkness at least, we don't know if you'll need 1 or 2 of Balance of the Force.

2 Core, 2 Edge of Darknes, 1 Balance of the Force as any other upgrades...

I personally have more of them because I want to use some pods in multible decks and don't want to rip decks apart in between, but that is a completely different thing...

 

The future is hard to see, allways moving, so it is much harder to see what deluxe expansions will reguire...

Because The Egge of the Darknes will bring the balance to the force, it may be possible that you only need one of each upcoming force packs including deluxe versions...
