Do we have any idea what the future distribution of this game will be?

Is it going to be a traditional Magic style random booster pack or can we expect more fixed releases like Fantasy Flight's LCGs?
How does L5R work and do we think this will this be similar?

Yes. ECG is what they're calling it (Expandable Card Game), as LCG is a trademarked term.

Regular Saddlebag expansions (84 cards, 21 unique x 4), irregular Pine Box, big box expansions.

You can check out my earlier post for this info:

http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1141827/new-info-on-factions...

Or you can get it from the source's mouth at:

www.alderac.com/doomtown

Simply put, it sounds like it will work almost exactly like FFG's LCGs.

Thanks both, I had actually read that but for some reason didn't take it in.

I really enjoyed Doomtown in the early 90s but absolutely hated buying boosters and not knowing what to expect. It ended up being "whoever had the fattest wallet wins", similar to MTG. I won't ever play MTG again because of it. Let's face it, buying boosters just plain sucks. It's just wasted money.

The saddlebags concept sounds cool and very much like the data packs for Android Netrunner. At least the playing fields are evened out this way. I'm very excited about this game and extremely pleased to see it coming back again !
