Hey guys,

I was wondering how exactly they handle expansions. In lotr they had a cycle of small box expansions before the first big box expansion... Here it seems like a big box is first? Any word on release dates, release cycles and price yet? How about that standalone adventure, will it ever hit amazon?

Its the same, but they skip the 1st small box cycle. Its like you jump to Khazad-dum directly after LOTR core.,

The big box expansions start a new campaign while the small box ones continue the campaign.

isn't there a scenario available on the main site. Nothing to do with The current campaign but sort of a side quest to it. It adds more cards I believe.

The game is interesting. I'm not entirely sold just yet but I have yet to fully get into it with the other investigators other than Roland who seems to more accessible investigator to start with.

Yes. It is called the Curse of the Rougarou.

I am new to LCG (I am still to play the base game in fact) but I feel more inclined to buy a lot of cheaps mythos pack than a big expansion. Is it not more fun to have just more scenarios that you play like chapters ? I don't get Dunwich Horror as it feels like a second core set. Do you think FFG will sell other mythos pack for the core set ?
Also, does it mean the Loup garou pack will only be available by their store ?

The big expansion starts the campaign. It's 8 scenarios, the first two are in The Dunwich Horror box. Mythos packs finish the scenario. There will be no continuation of the core box campaign.

The Curse of Rougarou will only be available as print on demand from FFG. I suppose some stores my buy it, like they did the expansion characters for WHQACG but the most reliable way is direct.

It's already listed on Cool Stuff Inc and Team Covenant, so you shouldn't have too many problems finding retailers with it.

Just to be clear, you need Dunwich Legacy to play any of the upcoming mythos packs that aren't standalone. Once the next deluxe pack comes around, it will be required for the packs that will follow it.
