I think one of the things that draws me to Gloomhaven is the fact that the massive amount of content set to be in the box means it'll probably never need nor be expanded. I like this. Why does every game need to have expansions these days? I don't mind complete games that have addons that really do feel like a later made addon, I just don't like games with expacs that feel like they should have been base game content. I sincerely hope that Gloomhaven does not get expanded assuming it fulfills it's promise of a high amount of scenarios. I found Forge War very replayable so I have hope! What do you guys think?

if I play this game and its 95 scenarios, with tons of monsters, many items to unlock; multiple characters to unlock and I still feel like it needs an expansion, then that means the fame is REALLY good, even better that what I expect. so win win..

PS I agree with you, I love expansions. Those that come later and add to the game. But some expansions that feel that just complete the core game meh (though I do buy some of this, many actually)

In the box there is a final boss, based on information provided so far. I expect there will be much fan generated content. I have sent the spoiler information to Reaper, Stonehaven, and Cool Mini Or not folks. They are not responsive. Spoiler of encounters shows you would need 253 miniatures. Even at Bones prices you are spending over 1k in miniatures. One would think folks that make miniatures would jump on this, but no.

Back on topic. I can see expansions to this. As with WoW there must always be a Lich King. Even after you beat the Big Bad Guy, there will be someone to take his/her place.

Taking a look at the mapboard, the western side cuts off mid-continent, so conceivably there could be an entire other half of the world to explore.

Hadn't even considered this. Mind = blown.

And you put the reason to that directly into your post. Few people are going to spend 1k$, or even 400 or 500$ which would be a better estimate for a board game at once. And that's why mini based games use expansions.

It will be really interesting to see if there are any hints dropped in scenarios, events or encounters that hint to stuff "beyond" the visible map!
