Ok, I am a big collector, and when I collect things, i try and get the whole set, just like any collector. Otherwise, why collect?

So I have played these games that are not collectible, but they are, because you have to catch all the pieces. Once you see how much fun it is, don't you really have to have them all...isnt that the logic behind Pokemon? Gotta catch em all?

See, this one is fine by istelf, but it gets so much more interesting when you start adding units and special armies and new terrain and lexan mats and ....ok...I am back. You get the picture.

Then, once you are satisfied with Heroscape, they come out with a new edition that has a whole new set of potentials...favorite heroes and villains, new terrain, new ideas...This isn't fair and you know what this means, it could pave the way for another set of heroes...

And really, can you fight World War 2 with just two armies. No, you need to get the Russians and the Japanese and the artillery and the tanks. I ask myself, what could be next, but you know it could be war at sea...watch it'll happen

What works with World War 2 should work with warfare in the Middle Ages. Let's tweak it a bit and add a fantasy / magic spin. This is a great game too. And you know you need the goblins and dwarves and monsters. You can't just play with the small set.

Not only is it in its second edition, but you can play in the city, in college, underground, in the mall, in the woods and in a military base. Come on, you can't just play as zombies either, how bout we add Humans in 2008. Of course I want it all, and I even want the sixth version so I can make my own squares. Zombies and Creativity.

Thank god they ran out of places to go, two story house with an attic and a basement. This game of truth or dare already could end with your friends dying or turning into ghosts. What's next? haunting house 5 the backyard....I would want that too

Sure you can play with the basic figures on the basic maps with the basic things. NOT!!!!! Let's see how many expansions we can put with a fun game before we run out of shelf space...

This is a great game, and you are gonna say, there aren't more parts to it, and I am going to tell you, You are right...

BUT the small silver line of games that Fantasy Flight puts out is great for a quick game between big games or a night of them one after the other. Gotta get em all (well most of them)

This is one of the first games I ever got in my game collection. I like the base game, I like playing it with kids at school and friends at home. The XBOX 360 version is pretty good too, but...it gets better and better as you get all the expansions. Not collectible they say? LIAR!

The grand-daddy game, the one that really caught my attention. Sure you can play the basic game until the ink wears off the hexes and the wood is all the same color. BUT, add the expansions, and the game strategy changes dramatically. After we added Seafarers and played that way for so long, we played without and forgot how different the game had become. Thankfully when the new edition came out they didn't add more to the game, because I would have gotten that too.

So my friend got this game for Christmas, and we haven't played it yet, but it looks really intriguing. Too intriguing. Sure enough, there are expansions and pieces a-go-go on their way. There are even some freebies on their website...freebies...don't they know that stuff can be like gamer crack...? Wait, they do know that...

Surely this is the ultimate collectable non-collectable game : 12 modules, 2 deluxe modules, 6 historical modules, 2 historical studies, 8 Journals, 3 starter kits, and I can't remember how many Annuals, with rules that cost as much as the games ? And you have to get them quick, because the good stuff sells out so damned fast ! cry

A good horror game with a slew of expansions. Hell Unleashed, The Horror Within, This is Not Happening, The Nameless Mist, The Most Dangerous Game, The Darkness Before the Dawn. Currently, I have the base set, Hell Unleashed, and This is Not Happening.

This game has so many expansions that it won't fit on some tables yet, I keep buying. I am bittersweetly happy that ff will keep making more expansions.
