Now there is an upcoming discount offer of the game within these few days, while here seems something like new expansion is slowly emerging...
zombie Should I wait or buy...?

If the new expansion is seeking new play testers, then it's not going to be ready within the duration of the sale. Probably not for months or more.

I would go ahead and buy now with the sale. Play with what you've got, and when the next expansion comes out you'll be ready for it.

Also, looking at the VPG section of the forums, while it's not uncommon for them to have sales (seems to be about 8 per year), many of them are for specific games. The odds of a sale having a bigger discount AND covering this particular game (which as I understand is their highest seller and thus in less need of discounting) seems very low. i.e. - this is probably the best sale you'll see short of buying/trading for a used copy.


Finally, application incoming. I would love to help out with testing.

I think you all say true, this discount offer is really quite a good chance for me to purchase. After much pondering, I think I'll grab the Bundle, 3rd and 4th expansion only, leaving out the promos as they will be in some upcoming expansion, if not mistaken...

I was originally thinking the same thing. I have the Necromancer Bundle w/ Nymph plus expansions 3 & 4 so I'm only missing the other three promos.

I was going to order them when Dawn of the Zeds 3rd Edition came out, but it's actually slightly cheaper to just buy them now on the BGG store and get them sooner.

There probably will be an expansion that bundles all four of them together, but chances are it might not be out by the time Zeds3 releases (causing a second shipping payment) and it probably won't save me more than a buck or two anyway. For that little, I decided to just go ahead and order them from the BGG store and have them now. Done and done.
