Say I want to pick up Nightfall but only one box, which product will give me the most enjoyable repeat play from all the sets according to you?

Is it still the base game or is one of the later standalone expansions a better proposition to play 'as is'?

Thanks a bunch.

The base game is the best place to start. It doesn't have a huge replay value but that's true for the other sets as well. It all depends on how often you'd like to play the game.
With two big box sets you'll have enough cards to play forever.

I like them all and mixed all the cards together so I really don't remember what is in each set anymore, so can't give a good recommendation on which one to start with. The last expansion/base set Nightfall: Eastern Skies is definitely out of print and hard to find. It had a very small print run. If you can find it for a decent price, it's worth getting. All of the other base sets and expansions had much higher print runs so can still be found. However, I'm pretty sure that AEG isn't re-printing any of it anymore, so your ability to get them will vary. Some of the promo cards are difficult to find as well.

I got the "Eternal Darkness Bundle"; you pay little more than a base set and you get both the original base set and Martial Law, another base set.

But that was some time ago...

Now, if only I could find a Nightfall Players Bundle...

If you're ever in Florence send me a PM, I'd love to get Nightfall to the table.
