This list is inspired by a conversation at the Dallas Games weekly event. We got into a conversation about games that have very little known/rare expansions/promos.

After opening a topic in the forums about this, I have decided to put together a list. Please feel free to add.

The link to the forum discussion:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geekforum.php3?action=viewthrea...

Any chance we can get a new game page section where such things can be submitted?

Probably the hottest promo out there at this time, the Sir Bedivere that was included in the most recent GameTrade magazine. I read somewhere that DOW will have this available at BGG.CON.

A very hard to find expansion for Turning Point: Stalingrad.

According to the game entry: "The expansion generated controversy because the rules for it were printed in the rulebook that came with the base game, leading some consumers to claim that part of the game was "left out". In light of all the flack, Avalon Hill never repeated the experiment."

Did I mention that I just won this on Ebay?

Games Workshop published an expansion for this in White Dwarf magazine. The expansion contained a few new weapon cards. Unfortunately it was printed on completely different cardstock (matte vs glossy) which made it more or less useless. Some of the weapons were kind of cool though.

Here is a link to the expansion:

While some of the Lookout expansions have been republished, and the Amigo expansions are certainly common, the other Lookout expansions (Mutabohn, Ladybohn, Telebohn, possibly Dschingesbohn) were released in editions of 2500.
