I bought this game two years ago from a store in Tennessee. I had only bought the base game at the time. I now want to see about getting expansions and packs for it. However when I went back to the store, I was told that not that many people play it anymore.

I moved to California and they don't even sell the expansions or decks anymore.

Should I put money into this? or should I consider expanding my other games. Like right now it is just me and my husband, we haven't really found other people who play it.

Since the game has been out for awhile, is it something they are going to be still making stuff for?

There are the products, but not sure when the last was made.

Judy,

Still a great game and FFG continues to make expansions for the game. The game has seen some recent increase in player base due to the shows' success. I recently started playing about 9 months ago and picked up the all the deluxe expansions. I continue to learn the various strategies and rules that continue be developed and change the game.

We have a solid group of 4-5 players which try and play 1-2 month as we cycle through the LCG games. Each gaming community is different, but you can usually find players through the country. Good luck and Hodor on!

Bobby

I reaaaaallly want to play this game, but have been able to find 0 people interested in it. Maybe it's just a Tennessee thing (that's where I am), but I've basically just written it off as something else I'll never get to play if I buy it. Sad really...

Edit: though it occurs to me that it might be a good one to get a group together to play via Skype or Google Hangout. I don't know how it plays, but both the Star Wars and Warhammer LCG's would be great for it, since each person can just operate his own play area. Not a lot of passing stuff back and forth. If someone were to put something like that together, I'd be all over it.

If there's no local scene it might be difficult to get value for money out of it. You could play on OCTGN, but that's not to everyone's taste.

I'm lucky to have a fairly active meta in my local shop, and a few friends that will play the odd casual session.

I bought the game years ago and never played it until recently. Now I've collected nearly all the cards, and I can put together 4-6 decks myself and give them to friends to play against. Everyone who I've played with has had a great time, and many of them have then gone out and bought their own copies. With the new mechanics of 'naval' and 'prized', I think the game will only continue to get deeper and more interesting. I'm only sorry I didn't start playing this sooner, so I think it is a great time to get into the game -- plus, soon you can try playing drafts if you like.

There's a really vibrant community of players in DC, if a little driving is ok. I don't know them, but I think there are also meetups/groups and tournaments in Atlanta.

I play with a great community in NYC. There are thriving communities of players across the country who play in the regional, national and world events. There's also a lot of players in Europe, and south america.

You can find gaming groups on meetup, and you can also search for other gamers on BGG. If there isn't much of a gaming community in your town, perhaps you and your husband can start one! (A bit ambitious, I know...)

From what I've seen/heard/read, there are active groups in both TN and CA.

http://community.fantasyflightgames.com/index.php?/forum/31-...

(There are a few CA groups mentioned here)


http://www.cardgamedb.com/forums/index.php?/topic/15045-atla...

(There's one guy from the TN area who you could reach out to and see if he knows where players are at).

I realize CA and TN are big states, so even a group within your state could be hours away, though! Cardgamedb used to have a "Member Map" which made it super easy to find players, but they had some probe with the program and took it down a few months ago

At any rate, good luck finding groups and people!

Yes, if you go on to Cardgamedb.com or agotcards.org and post that you are in CA then you should be able to find people who play in your area or tell you who does. I know that there are people who play in the San Francisco area, since a friend from DC just moved out there.
