      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

About the core set...

5 posts in this topic

I noticed that FFG has the CoC core set listed at being reprinted in Q1 2014.

 

Has there been any announcement, similar to Secrets of Arkham, about the core set have errata'd cards and switched to a 3 of everything model?

 

I've been trying to get into the game and try to get a group started where I live, but having trouble building a player base without the actual game.

Unlikely core set will change quantities. No other lcg core set ever has. Errata is a maybe but no announcement.

 

That makes sense.

 

The reason I asked was because of the change to Secrets of Arkham.

 

I'm reasonably new to the LCG from FFG, which just makes me curious if there is any other precedence.

 

It doesn't look like they ever stopped printing the core set for Netrunner.  Call of Cthulhu seems to be an actual stop in production and reprint.

 

Is Secrets of Arkham the first deluxe box of any LCG that has been reprinted and changed to the "3 of" format?  Have any of the other LCG cores reached a point where the core set was unavailable and then reprinted?

 

I suppose just digging for possible clues that the CoC core set gets the same beautiful treatment that Secrets of Arkham is getting.  It would make it a lot easier to get into the game, for my wife and I.  Plus buying it for friends too.

 

Here is to hoping!

AGoT's Kings of the Sea and Princes of the Sun deluxe expansions were both changed to the 3 of format from the previous formats they had. 

 

All of the core sets for the LCGs have been out of print at one time or another. Netrunner has gone out of print and been reprinted multiple times since it started a little over a year ago.

I feel ya' Sully! After reading that the reprint of Secrets of Arkham went to '3of' I also wondered if the Core which was also on the reprint schedule could receive the same treatment but in the end I came to the same conclusion as Toqtamish, FFG is fine with status quo and prefers to apply their resources elsewhere. There would have to be some revamping of the insert and repricing etc. I also wonder how many folks would still buy a core as a whim to try something new if the initial investment was increased by so much?
