Hi all I was going to order the sailor card and the only place where I can find it is the portal site for $3.00 is this any different than the Zman base game character cards? If so, what's different?

Anyways I am also new to the game how many characters are available now? I saw 4 for the base game, the sailor, and the missionary from HMS Beagle expansion.

What expansions should I get to start? Which ones are even still available? I saw the beach cards on the portal site too. Are these offered by Zman?

Thank you! Thank you!

You don't need any expansions to begin. The base game has plenty of variety and replayability on its own. The extra beast cards, scenarios and Sailor add to that somewhat, but are certainly not necessary. If you enjoy it enough, you'll probably want to eventually get the Voyage of the Beagle expansion, but you can wait on that.

There are a few promos left in the BGG store as well.

Just FYI, the Beach cards from Portal are different from the Beach cards in Voyage of the Beagle.

Thanks everyone so much I'll just start with the base and see how it goes! Probably lots of death but also lots of fun!
