Hi,

I like Elder Sign but I play more often on the android version than on th e tabletop version.

Will the Gates of Arkham expansion be released as an expansion to the app ?

Best regards,

Ghislain

I follow the FFG news thread closely, and I haven't seen anything there. Also I heard that FFG has a policy against developers contributing to threads on FFG properties. So I sincerely wish you luck, but doubt you'll find an answer!

They haven't even released the first expansion on Omens, why expect the second?

They haven't released the three Omens expansions either but some characters of Unseen Forces are included in the Omens expansions.

If the tabletop version of Gates of Akham is successful, it could be a good expansion to add in Omens. But I won't hold me breath.

They incorporated many of the elements of the first expansion, including most all the added adventures, a lot of the items and spells, and, I think, all of the investigators, into the various IAPs for Omens. They didn't incorporate the bless/curse mechanic (which, granted, is arguably the most significant addition from the expansion), and only a handful of the total AO's have been released for the app.

In many ways, Gates feels almost like a new game. I wouldn't be surprised if they created a new app for it, rather than adding it as an expansion. I do hope they release Gates in app form- I'd buy it in a snap, regardless of the format.

It's been about 2 years since they've put out anything new for Omens. I wonder how successful it's been for FFG? It certainly seems to have generated the most discussion on their message boards of the handful of 'media' they've released, and I see it regularly in the 'top charts' strategy and boardgame sections of the iOS app store.

I totally agree : I'd buy it in a snap, as an expansion of Omens or as a new app.

The impressions I get from watching the last expansion for Omens (there's a UK gentlemen who had me in tears from laughing watching him get pounded by Omens on YouTube) that they already have travel (and the Fan conversion here has me wondering if I should keep the three area decks separate when playing) so would they need to really change that? Don't you acquire a certain number of elder sign before moving to the next area?

I remember people complaining before GoA was released that they had more going on with Omens than the tabletop version because they had travel already. They are different but they might just tweak the app to add more to it.
