I just got second edition as KS. We LOVE it. I didn't bought any of the expansion, hence I`m looking into them. Couple of questions:
1. The moon expansion was release after 2ed so I assume art and such is compatible. what about archfield?
2. By reviewing BGG and MM, it seems that no much villagers have being added; they mostly add Monster deck. Also no new skills/action/attacks, is that correct? No expansion adds these?
Archfiends expands the cooperative deckbuilding game Shadowrift. The Archfiend will have its own special deck that allows it to wade into the middle of the heroes and wreck all their plans for saving the town. There are six Archfiend decks - one keyed to each of the six monster factions from the Shadowrift base game. Will you emerge from the battle victorious? Or will the Archfiend see you bloody, battered and beaten?
so this expansion is 6 monster deck? that`s it? thanks. I know it adds replay, but 40us... hmmmmmmm. I was hoping the "big" expansion would have some walls, villagers or skills/actions/attacks...
From BGG, even of the sickle moon expansion
This expansion adds two new monster factions:
• The Lycanthrope faction consists of were-animals in many shapes and sizes. They all bear the common theme that they're able to bite villagers and spread their curse, and that when the full moon rises they become more powerful.
• The Harrowood faction is a forest that has been twisted into a violent hatred of humanity by the opening of the Shadowrifts. They can create Overgrowths, which empower their faction and speed the town's destruction.
To fight back against these foes, the heroes have four new hero cards with druidic power and four new hero cards with Elementalist powers. Three new villagers and a Wall are also included.
3. do you rec one over the other? archfiends sound like a nice mechanic to add, worth the price tag?
4. Also, I noticed that my 2ed box has a LOT of espace available. I remember reading that the Moon expansion would fit completely, cant find this info again. Could someone confirm this? Does even of the sickle moon expansion fit on the 2ed box? what about archfiend expansion?
5. should I wait for the expansion coming in 2017? do we know anything about that one? KS? when?
EDIT creators in case @Jeremy and team read this: I`m wondering why 2 expansion later and no skills/villagers/attack have being added? (except 3-4 on EotM) Are you considering doing so in the future? near future? thanks
