Hi all, I'm considering buying a core set for myself and my playgroup to try. I've heard a lot of good things about the game and it looks like fun. I know it was discontinued awhile back but I did have a few little questions. One of the main questions is how is the card distribution? (1 card per battle pack or x3 per pack) What are the "mandatory" expansions/deluxes. What are each of the 6 (I heard there were actually 10 now) good/bad at? But I guess the overall question is if this game with worth buying/investing into. Any replies are welcome. :)

I bought the core, 3 warpacks and 4 deluxes. Totally enjoy the game.

The game is very good... even though it is discontinued I still am buying packs myself.. they are onften on sale and as of yet nothing is "that" hard to find.

 

I would recommend 1xCore and 1 Coy of each Deluxe. If you like it and want more, then get a 2nd core and start on the cycles.

 

The biggest problem with the game is that it is so old that many of the packs are in the old rarity format. So make sure you check that. By rarity I mean that there are common, uncommon and rare. So you technically need to buy 3 copies of the 1 pack to get all the cards.

Agree with everything said here.  This is a fantastic game that was just unfortunately not as popular as it should have been.  Definitely grab some product!

I have to agree with the guys here. A great game that for some unknown reason, never got the love it deserved.

Firstly, check out boardgamegeek as there are at least two well respected solo versions there (one is vs an AI deck, other has challenge missions) so no worry on never playing it as you can always solo.

 

Secondly, the first cycle (6 ap's) and the Ulthuan deluxe were old distribution rarity but all others newer x3 format. So for a FULL playset you need:

3x core

3x First cycle of 6ap's

3x Ulthuan

1x all other deluxes and ap's/cycles

Just to clarify .. it is 

 

  • Ulthuan Deluxe
  • Corruption Cycle

That you need to get 3 of each if you want to go full retard on this.

I'm not going to get deluxes, since I don't have the funds, and the packs are a better sale. I'm probably going with the Eternal War cycle, but what other cycle(s) should I do?

 

 

 

Just to clarify .. it is 

 

  • Ulthuan Deluxe
  • Corruption Cycle

That you need to get 3 of each if you want to go full retard on this.

That's midly annoying. Oh well.

You know what, this could mean one of two things

1) FFG is trying to clear out the warehouse
2) FFG is trying to get people to buy in to Invasion, because they are going to start supporting it again.


Please be the second one.

It's defintely not the second... The amount of invasion stuff we saw in crates at the "auxiliary" space, definitely trying to clear house. Worked on me I just bought in at that price lol

It would be cool to see a resurgence of interest in this game with this sale. I topped off my collection this morning at FFG. The sale is literally too good to pass up. If anyone is looking to flip some cards at FFG, hit me up.

Yeah, I also completled my collection as well... this is probably the last chance you will get. My guess is that they will be sold out soon and nebver seen again. I did some checking and the core sets are a lot harder to find than I thought as well.. so I also grabbed the a 3rd copy of core (as well as the 3 copies of each curruption cylce and 1 more Ulthuan)
 

That's midly annoying. Oh well.


Yeah a lot of people found the rarities a real pain. It makes the early aGoT and CoC games really hard to collect but lucky most got a reprint. It was only these and the Dreamlands packs that got screwed. CoC players have been yelling for a dreamland reprint for years and finally got one as the 1st cycle PoD this year. Still I feel ya pain... really pissed off pretty much everyone!
 

2) FFG is trying to get people to buy in to Invasion, because they are going to start supporting it again.


It is still my hope that they will do what they are doing with CoC and put the entiure game into the PoD system.
